Storage Virtualization

Storage is probably the biggest area of inefficiency that still exists in the data centre. With the proliferation of physical servers and the demand to deploy them as quickly as possible disk storage can be the most difficult resource to manage.

A more effective way of managing disk storage requirements is to consolidate the disk storage and present elements of the total storage via the use of Storage Area Networks (SANs) and present the underlying storage in a virtual methodology.

Once a storage virtualisation technique is introduced it presents new opportunities to organisations such as replication of data to hot sites for rapid recovery or business continuity solutions.

When combined with consolidation and server virtualisation technologies the benefits can be huge.
