Whitepaper: Storage Virtualization for IT Flexibility
Storage virtualization is commonly used in file systems, storage area networks (SANs), switches and virtual tape systems.


As computing power spreads throughout an organization, storage can become an unmanageable problem. Fragmented pools of storage are inefficient and wasteful -- they are difficult to manage and back up. But by using storage virtualization, organizations can manage storage assets much more effectively.


Virtualization hides the physical complexity of storage from storage administrators and applications, making it possible to manage all storage as a single resource. In addition to easing the storage management burden, find out how this approach dramatically improves the efficiency and cuts overall costs. This IT brief provides and overview of storage virtualization and gives answers to some of the questions surrounding storage virtualization.
