So your storage demands keep growing and you've already got a patchwork of vendors, architectures and solutions in your data center that delivers what is rapidly becoming known as the management migraine.
Well, fortunately there are those who share your concerns and are looking to devise a Unified Storage architecture.
Under the auspices of the Storage Networking Industry Association, firms like HP, EMC and IBM are working on a set of standards to broaden the interoperability between platforms.

We'll keep you posted.
