Virtualization software

Virtualization can pool storage from across the data center, allowing disks from diverse storage platforms to appear as a single storage resource. This storage resource can then be allocated, provisioned, migrated, replicated and backed up without regard to where it is physically located. Not only does virtualization make storage easier to track and manage, it also makes better use of available storage, forestalling the expense of unnecessary disk or storage platform purchases.
