Problem Solve Storage software applications Issues
We’ve gathered up expert advice and tips from professionals like you so that the answers you need are always available.
Even though virtualization has become commonplace in today's data centers, provisioning storage for applications on virtual machines (VMs) often remains a pain point for IT professionals. Random I/O processes unique to virtual environments often put a strain on storage hardware and it's common for one, or even several, VMs to eat up bandwidth, leaving others without the power they need. In addition, configuring logical unit numbers and volumes when provisioning storage for virtual environments can be extremely complicated.
Today, vendors of emerging storage technologies are attempting to pave a smoother path toward better performance and capacity in virtual environments. Technologies such as hyper-converged storage aim to create a simpler configuration by shipping the hypervisor and storage in one box. Other products, deemed "software-defined storage," often pool storage to better utilize capacity and performance. But that doesn't mean managers don't still need to understand the unique set of challenges VMs place on storage. In this e-book, readers will learn how to cope with these challenges by understanding how virtualization changes the way storage should be provisioned and monitored. They will also learn how new technologies in the storage for virtual environment space can help and what types of applications they are most beneficial for, and how once murky technologies such as software-defined storage have grown to be more clearly defined as viable options for storing VMs.Continue Reading
For 12 years, Storage magazine has presented its roster of new data storage trends that are ready to have an impact in data centers. We’ll tell you why VMware VVOLs, all-flash arrays, cloud disaster recovery, flash caching, server SANs and hybrid arrays should be on your short list for storage technology refreshes.
Admins struggled with backing up virtual machines (VMs), until vendors responded with updated suites and new backup apps especially for VMs. But there were more basic issues with supporting virtual environments with traditional SAN and NAS systems. A handful of startups stepped up with arrays that shed the paradigms of the past in favor of a hypervisor-centric approach. Find out what life after LUNs is all about.
