In this engaging virtual environment, CIOs will uncover webcasts and podcasts featuring storage expert Marc Staimer. Staimer discusses three primary storage strategies for a virtual environment: an integrated approach, a server/hypervisor approach and a storage-centric approach and the pros and cons of each.
Staimer also delves into the performance and capacity gotchas CIOs encounter in a virtual environment and explores the advantages of traditional storage such as NAS versus SAN in a virtual environment.
CIOs will also find valuable storage virtualization advice in an expert article from Arun Taneja, consulting analyst and founder of Taneja Group Inc. Taneja explains why storage technologies such as solid-state drives (SSDs) are helping overcome virtual application performance hurdles.
