  • Understanding data storage requirements in a virtual environment

    Even though virtualization has become commonplace in today's data centers, provisioning storage for applications on virtual machines (VMs) often remains a pain point for IT professionals. Random I/O processes unique to virtual environments often put a strain on storage hardware and it's common for one, or even several, VMs to eat up bandwidth, leaving others without the power they need. In addition, configuring logical unit numbers and volumes when provisioning storage for virtual environments can be extremely complicated.

    Today, vendors of emerging storage technologies are attempting to pave a smoother path toward better performance and capacity in virtual environments. Technologies such as hyper-converged storage aim to create a simpler configuration by shipping the hypervisor and storage in one box. Other products, deemed "software-defined storage," often pool storage to better utilize capacity and performance. But that doesn't mean managers don't still need to understand the unique set of challenges VMs place on storage. In this e-book, readers will learn how to cope with these challenges by understanding how virtualization changes the way storage should be provisioned and monitored. They will also learn how new technologies in the storage for virtual environment space can help and what types of applications they are most beneficial for, and how once murky technologies such as software-defined storage have grown to be more clearly defined as viable options for storing VMs.
