    Managing storage for virtual servers

    It's easy to understand why server virtualization has become so popular among IT admins. Virtual servers are flexible, mobile and can be deployed or decommissioned rapidly. However, managing storage for virtual environments can be difficult. Many shops struggle with managing storage for virtual servers, and even more could realize better performance with more sophisticated management.
