What Is Storage Virtualization?
Storage Virtualization is the act of hiding complexity or adding new capabilities to lower level storage systems. This can include strategies that are important to virtual server designs, such as thin provisioning, automated storage tiering and network load balancing. File virtualization provides a layer of intelligence in the network that decouples the logical access to files from their physical location, so files are free to move and storage devices are free to change, without disrupting users, applications, or business.
A Smart Business Strategy.
With the unrelenting growth of unstructured data (user files), e-mail, databases, and other application data storage, virtualization has become an important component of comprehensive enterprise storage architectures. Storage and file virtualization offer higher utilization, lower capital costs, easier provisioning, extreme scalability, and added storage capacity on less expensive storage media. Virtualization provides automated, policy-based management across heterogeneous storage environments. The end result is reduced storage expenditures and management overhead, and accelerated business workflows.
