Enabling Virtualization and Infrastructure Consolidation
Storage consolidation is the primary enabler behind any virtualization or infrastructure consolidation initiative.
Distributed processing involves distributed islands of processing and storage that need to be managed separately with separate capacity for each “island” as well as separate backup for each island.
With consolidated networked storage, storage is separated from processing islands and consolidated. Processing islands can be moved, consolidated and virtualized separate from their storage.
Disk redundancy as well as data volume replication, snapshots and backup applied to the consolidated storage can benefit all attached servers.
