Making the Business Case for File Server Consolidation with Windows® Storage Server 2003 By Microsoft Corporation and Quest Software Published: September 2003 Abstract Consolidating servers to place the organization’s workload onto a smaller number of network attached storage (NAS) devices  based on Windows Storage Server 2003  is an increasingly popular concept; however, it can be difficult to gather hard data to  make the business case for doing so. This paper describes a process that allows you to gather the necessary data to build a  business case to get sponsorship for server consolidation projects.
