Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage and VMware: Efficiency and Performance Maximized
Source: Hitachi Data Systems
Data centers everywhere are being challenged to meet increasing business and IT demands with the same - or shrinking - budgets and staff. As a result, organizations are turning to server virtualization technologies, such as VMware, to help maximize efficiencies throughout the data center. In virtualized server environments - perhaps even more so than in traditional environments - selection of the storage environment (such as direct attached storage versus storage area network) and choice of the storage system, itself, are critical. With the right systems in place efficiency is improved, the virtualized environment hums along and performance is maximized. With the wrong systems, efficiencies are minimized.
