As virtualization has proliferated in most data centers, IT has witnessed massive virtual machine (VM) sprawl. As the number of VMs increases, so does storage consumption. Even idle VMs consume storage I/O and physical disk allocation.

The performance, reliability and agility needs of the next-generation data center, combined with explosive data growth, put high demands on the underlying storage supporting virtual infrastructures. Storage plays a key role in ensuring the success of these virtual deployments, since VMs are stored on the underlying storage infrastructure. Inadequate and outdated storage technologies can severely limit organizations from taking full advantage of virtualization. In order to succeed, organizations need storage solutions that are designed in the 21st century with virtualization in mind.
