Four Challenges to Making Server and Storage Virtualization Work - SD New York City 2007
sponsored by Storage Decisions
Unfortunately, server virtualization with shared storage exacerbates pre-existing storage management issues and in many cases, creates new challenges not present in a purely physical world. As a result, server virtualization planning and deployment are increasingly intertwined with the planning and scaling of a storage infrastructure that can support the high levels of consolidation that many businesses demand today.As the scale of a virtual environment increases, the performance, availability and cost-efficiency of the storage infrastructure becomes crucial to enabling the next level of scalability of a virtualized server environment. In this presentation, Steve Norall, analyst for the Taneja Group, discusses the key end user storage challenges and how new technologies are evolving to address these problems.
