This white paper discusses the fundamental problem that thin provisioning was designed to address - that of allocated-but-unused storage. It explains the concepts behind thin provisioning and describes key benefits in detail. It examines 3PAR Thin Provisioning software and also discusses how, for applications already deployed on legacy storage, IT administrators can successfully migrate existing volumes to a thin environment by leveraging Thin Provisioning 2.0 technology within 3PAR Utility Storage and Veritas Storage Foundation. Finally, it looks to the future of thin provisioning, dubbed "Thin Provisioning 3.0," and how 3PAR and Symantec are partnering together to enable users to stay thin over time.
