You are a respected and tenured IT professor and you also manage the university computer operations that consist of a server farm of 8 servers and an NAS of 100 terabytes. The CIO is excited to announce that the university enrollment is increasing at a steady rate, and as a result, the number of college students enrolling at the university has increased dramatically.

- A list of common problems that you may encounter while adding storage to meet growing data storage requirements
- Your proposed solutions
