Switch-level storage virtualization

Virtualization allows administrators to gather, organize, allocate and manage storage hardware without regard for the applications or servers that use it. When properly implemented, storage virtualization eliminates forgotten or partially -used disks, allowing superior storage utilization. This demands fewer drives, often translating into significant cost savings. Data can easily be transferred and migrated between storage resources. Virtualization also permits storage resources to be altered and updated on the fly without disrupting application performance, generally reducing downtime. Interest is building in virtualization at the switch level, promising better performance and interoperability.
