Why a Fully-Virtualized SAN is more Cost Effective than Legacy NAS, SAN and DAS
One challenge with deploying server virtualization is selecting the right storage infrastructure that will serve as a foundation and scale to meet the challenge of top tier applications. Direct-attached storage (DAS), networked-attached storage (NAS,) and both Fibre Channel (FC) and iSCSI storage area networks (SANs) are viable for server virtualization; however, they are not equal in terms of functionality, ease-of-use, or cost.
Check out this ESG whitepaper and you will discover why enterprise-class fully-virtualized iSCSI SAN is more cost effective than legacy NAS, SAN and DAS in a virtualized environment and why ESG believes the Dell EqualLogic PS Series offers distinct advantages for virtual servers.
