Presented by Jeramiah Dooley, SolidFire & Thomas Bryant, VMware
In this webinar recording, we examine a year-in-the-life of an enterprise data center. We’ll show how consolidating workloads onto the right platform can be the crucial missing step as VMware customers transition from a legacy architecture into a Software Defined Data Center.
Storage has become a real limitation of the modern, virtualized data center. When used for the virtual environment, it has been slow, unpredictable, inflexible, and requires far too much operational overhead. To add to the pain, it is still sized, deployed and managed using methods created in the 1980s, which does not align with the rapid nature of virtualize environments. Worst of all, storage capacity and performance are often still locked together in fixed ratios, making it inevitable that even the best run storage environment will be wasteful and inefficient.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. The technology and know-how exists to have storage be a predictable, flexible and easily managed part of an overall virtualized platform designed to provide the performance and availability that today’s end user workloads demand.
