Storage Management in a Virtualized World
Current data growth is explosive - and as a result, so is the increasing need for more storage. This growth, in addition to unprecedented levels of unstructured data, virtual desktops and virtualized IT, has made the task of efficiently managing storage even more important than it's ever been.
This may seem paradoxical - virtualization initiatives are intended to make management and overall operations easier, so why is storage getting complicated and bogged down? It's because storage technologies haven't kept up with other IT developments, and this dichotomy has created inefficiencies in infrastructures.
This paper offers insight into achieving effective storage management by leveraging the array of tools and unified products designed to rein in storage growth, improve efficiency and cut costs. Read on to learn how to apply a unified approach and best practices to maximize benefits resulting from storage efficiency.
