Hypervisor vendors up the ante with new storage features

There's a struggle between doing storage the "old way" and the new demands that virtual servers put on networked storage. Storage vendors have retooled their systems to be virtual machine (VM)-friendlier and startups offer VM-specific arrays, but now hypervisor vendors like VMware and Microsoft have enhanced their server virtualization platforms with storage features that help to integrate storage into the new paradigms of hypervisor management.

Whether your servers are virtualized or not, storage is the key to how well the data center infrastructure performs. Identifying storage performance bottlenecks and eliminating them is vital to restoring order and performance to an environment.

Hadoop is the poster child of the big data hullabaloo, but it seems contrary to traditional shared storage. But tapping into the Hadoop Distributed File System can bring these disparate worlds together.
