Many data centers are now more than 50% virtualized, but most of this virtualization has been application focused leading to silos of virtualization. As a result, each environment (MS-SQL, Exchange, VDI) gets its own storage, compute and network. This process increases inefficiencies and costs. As Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst George Crump and Sachin Chheda, Solutions Marketing Director at Nutanix discuss in this Storage Short, IT planners need to look for ways to move to a data center virtualization strategy instead of an application virtualization strategy.
The complete webinar details the problems with silo’d virtualization and explains how data centers can borrow the cloud concept of a Web-scale architecture, which will lead to decreased costs and increased efficiencies.
