Study Shows that Hybrid Storage Plays a Crucial Role in Mitigating Virtualization Issues

  • Study Shows that Hybrid Storage Plays a Crucial Role in Mitigating Virtualization Issues-

    Data Reduction

    More Flash storage is a boost for data reduction.

    Hybrid and all-Flash systems generate dramatically better data reduction outcomes, validating the storage capacity benefits of switching from all-disk systems. With respondents who reported a 10:1 data reduction ratio, 78 percent of respondents are running a hybrid storage environment. Those respondents who reported virtually no data reduction typically are running an all-disk system environment.

With the rise of both structured and unstructured data and the rapid proliferation of technology, virtualization has become critical to helping organizations handle unprecedented technological challenges in terms of performance and capacity.

However, virtualization technology does not come without its challenges. A majority of IT professionals are facing occasional or ongoing storage performance issues as they look to maintain highly virtualized data center environments that can keep up with business growth, according to a recent report from Tegile Systems and ActualTech Media on the "State of Storage in Virtualization."

The survey is based on conversations with over 1,000 IT professionals. The following slides explore the results of this research, highlighting the state of virtualization within the data center, common challenges, and the technology being leveraged to rise above these hurdles.
