IDC: Max Out Virtualization & Consolidation Benefits with Network Storage
You're probably familiar with the benefits of virtualization and consolidation by now: reduced space requirements, savings on operational costs and streamlined management, to name a few. But did you know that choosing the right storage solution is quite often the key to maximizing the benefits of consolidation and virtualization? Legacy storage infrastructures can often negate those benefits, as traditional server storage limits the flexibility and cost savings of these new virtual environments.
Check out this IDC white paper to learn how a network storage solution designed to support virtual servers and environments can enable you to maximize the benefits of consolidation and virtualization. Read on to learn about a solution made for consolidating and unifying storage and explore the challenges and opportunities inherent to consolidation and virtualization storage for mid-sized companies.
