Taneja Group's recent survey on virtual server storage practices revealed users of virtual infrastructure are facing some significant storage capacity, performance, provisioning and management issues. Taken together, these considerably drive up the cost and risk of virtual server deployments. Fortunately, innovative storage vendors like HP are helping users to overcome these storage hurdles. This paper discusses attributes of HP 3PAR Utility Storage powered by Intel® Xeon® processors that make it particularly suitable for virtual server environments and also how it addresses future user requirements uncovered in Taneja Group research.
