Virtualization is only as good as the quality of your storage, and there’s a lurking problem undermining your VMware investment. You’re depending on your substantial VMware investment to consolidate your server resources and extract real gains — faster application deployment, an increase in performance and availability, and operations automation.
But you may not be aware of a problem that hinders VMware’s ability to squeeze as much efficiency as it can from your compute environment: the storage connected to it.
When storage isn’t optimized for a virtualized environment, your storage and virtualization admins feel more pain, your energy consumption costs rise, and your footprint sprawls. There is much more to be gained with your VMware investment from the storage side of your compute solution.
