I have typically created a spreadsheet, using storage metrics that I manually captured, as a baseline.
Using past storage requests, you can possibly forecast future storage needs.
You can then use your forecasting document, to help justify the acquisition of new storage arrays.
Just be sure to add auto calculations in your spreadsheet, for easier updates.
I would start by capturing existing storage (capacity) available, on each array, total storage requested, total storage presented, storage reclaimed.
Hope this helps.
