Angie Gonzalez, of Datacore, and I had a conversation about how virtual storage complements any type of virtual processing solution. Nearly all virtual server-based solutions gain a great deal of benefit when a supporting virtual storage strategy is also deployed. Why is that?
- Virtual storage solutions iron out incompatibilities among storage subsystems making it possible for a workload to move from one place to anotfher without also requiring IT administrators to reconfigure storage systems on the fly.
- Virtual storage solutions can make it more easily possible to select the storage subsystem based upon the performance requirements of the application, overall polices and operational events.
Until fairly recently, only the largest of organizations could afford sophisticated virtual storage systems. Datacore has been doing its best to bring this type of technology to the midmarket for nearly 10 years.
What is your organization doing to complement its virtual processing solutions with virtual storage solutions?
