Storage monitoring in most organizations is a reactive practice. They are unaware of depleting storage and end up scrambling to buy more resources at the 11th hour. This is not good practice, especially given the repercussions of storage running out for critical network components. Forecasting is a useful tool that companies can leverage to plan spending on storage. Instead of completely ignoring storage capacities or overspending, they can perform storage capacity planning and save revenue while minimizing the chances of a crisis.
