The IT industry is a large and complex ecosystem comprising many elements that often exert influence on one industry while being affected by another. The server and storage industries offer just one example of such symbiotic relationships. While the advent of networked storage has certainly changed the direct tie between a single server and a single storage array, these two markets remain heavily affected by their respective technological developments. This IDC paper discusses the two main ways in which a storage array can help ensure that virtualized server environments are able to provide promised benefits with minimal undue dedication of storage resources.
