Solutions Virtualization and Consolidation

Storage Virtualization

Virtualization continues to change the rules in the datacenter.  It is no longer limited to consolidation.  It’s about:
  • Enhanced application availability
  • Simplification
  • Reducing manually intensive tasks
  • Reducing power and cooling
  • Providing resources on demand
  • Improved portability
  • Improved scalability
  • Enabling cloud services
  • Reducing storage related costs (OPEX and CAPEX)
Storage Virtualization has the potential to provide the same radical paradigm shift for storage that is systems virtualization provided for servers.  Determining which virtualization technology would be best, and how to deploy it presents many challenges and the list considerations continue to grow:
  • F.A.S.T. (Fully Automated Storage Tiering)
  • Single Instance Storage
  • Internal or External Virtualization
  • Thin Provisioning
  • P.B.M. (Policy Based Management)
  • Resource Pooling
  • Replication
  • Snapshots
  • Cloning
  • In-Band or Out-of-Band
  • Network or Array Based
