The key to maximum and sustainable return on investment (ROI) of a virtual infrastructure is to achieve the highest possible virtual machine (VM) density per physical server host. The problem is that the more densely populated a physical server is with VMs the more it requires a high performance storage architecture to support the random I/O each physical server generates. It is also critical to be able to actively monitor and manage the use of I/O resources in real-time with VM granularity.
There is enough CPU horsepower to achieve support dense VM architectures and thanks to flash solid state disk (SSD), the storage system can handle the random I/O that these servers densely populated with VMs will create. The first of the final two challenges is correctly architecting the connection between those servers and the flash based media inside the storage system. The second challenge is to then monitor and manage this new storage network architecture so that resources can be properly allocated to the VMs that need them.
In this panel discussion, experts from Storage Switzerland, Brocade and VMware discuss how selecting the right storage network and integrating end-to-end I/O visibility can lead to new levels of VM density and allow you to achieve maximum virtualization ROI.
In The Webinar You Will Learn:
- Why Maximum VM Density is Key to Maximum Virtualization ROI
- The Roadblocks To Maximum VM Density
- How To Solve The Storage Network Bottleneck
- Why Monitoring and Managing The I/O Resource Needs To Be Operationally Transparent
All registrants for this webinar will receive an exclusive, advanced copy of Storage Switzerland’s white paper “Maximum VM Density Requires Optimal Storage Networking”.
In addition, all registrants will be able to access Storage Switzerland’s extensive library of on-demand webinars, many with exclusive white papers, without having to re-register.
