Storage, Virtualization and Enhancing the Cloud
November 30th, 2011 By: Kevin Normandeau
The subject matter experts at Dell present “The cloud awaits: Storage for the growing virtualized infrastructure.” This technical whitepaper explains the benefits behind the integration of Dell™ EqualLogic™ PS Series iSCSI SANs and VMware® vSphere™ virtualization software.
Virtualization has been the trend in data center evolution and the benefits are well documented from both a cost and infrastructure perspective. The Cloud is next showing an even greater promise in terms of ROI. In between these data center strategies lies the need for a proven storage solution.
The authors passionately advocate and clearly explain how Dell and VMware provide the optimal combination for the data center. This marriage is successful because the collaboration, between the two industry leaders, makes for an effective integration allowing for a less challenging expansion of the virtualized footprint.
As this paper suggests, once this scalable virtualization strategy is met then expansion can be sought in even more mission critical apps in particular building next-generation cloud environments that help maximize the value of virtualization. Click here to download this white paper.
