    Thin Provisioning is very helpful and pretty painless...as executed by the Compellent FC SAN. It allows you to avoid the unutilized space you always get when allocating storage for future but unknown needs. They have alerts you can set up for capacity planning as the volume actually begins to fill up. Combine this with their automated ILM and it is a win-win. I saw this comment on the Compellent site... "Dynamic Capacity has allowed us to recover 50-70% of the unused space previously allocated to boot and application volumes and cut our total upfront storage purchases by a third."
