As VMware began its march into production, IT managers discovered the need for a storage area network (SAN) for the organization to fully tap into its potential. The available SANs at the time were difficult and not really VMware ready.
Organizations demanded more and as time passed. New systems, some SAN based, others NAS based, came to market that were easy to use and provided tighter integration. As a result the use of VMware proliferated. Now, though, it’s time for IT professionals to take another look and raise their expectations yet again.
In his latest white paper, “What to expect from your VMware Storage”, my colleague W. Curtis Preston discusses what the new requirements of VMware storage are and what designs are available to meet those requirements.
You can get this white paper now by watching Storage Switzerland’s webinar “Moving VMware from Disaster Recovery to High Availability”.
