Using Thin Provisioning to Your Best Advantage in the Data Center
sponsored by Storage Decisions
Thin provisioning is not new, but there is still confusion about how it works and how to best use it in the data center. One reason is that no two vendors accomplish thin provisioning in the same way. Another reason is that thin provisioning serves disparate business needs ranging from capacity management to virtualization support to the green data center and more. This variety of usages makes for a powerful technology but a confusing message.
This presentation outlines the various approaches and technologies behind thin provisioning. Learn about the major business needs that thin provisioning meets, find out about the major vendors in the space and get an outline on thin provisioning in the context of meeting multiple needs in the data center.
