In the recent, due to explosion of Digital Universe, the performance of computer and storage system is reducing. Therefore, the upgrade and capacity expansion needs is growing. Countermeasure for this problem is required fundamental and long-term solutions rather than piecemeal expansion. In this paper, we establish a data management policy for an enterprise through the operational status of storage system and the analysis of data value of it, and implement ILM-based tiered storage system on the basis of these. The results of this study shows the overall throughput was improved about 21 % compared to the existing system, it is very effective to maintain continuous quality and reduce operating costs in the long term aspect.
