Enterprises are deploying server virtualization to save power, cooling and management costs, improve asset utilization, and increase flexibility. However, server virtualization by itself is only the tip of the iceberg. To realize the full benefits from a virtual infrastructure, companies must also implement the other critical component to the total solution: storage virtualization.
Storage virtualization extends the benefits of server virtualization by providing simplified storage management, improved storage utilization, and better application performance. Moving from direct-attached silo storage to a SAN where storage can be shared in a virtual pool also provides significant power, cooling, and IT management cost savings.
