In 2010, IT Manager Attention will Turn to Virtualizing Storage

For all intensive purposes, virtualization seems to be unstoppable. And despite a still-faltering economy, virtualization looks to remain strong in 2010. For a company like PROMISE Technology, we see more interest than ever in virtualized storage.

Look at the world of wireless -- the next frontier in storage. IT managers will look at wireless clients like netbooks, iPhones and other PDAs when planning their virtual deployments. These products are flexible, cheaper and are being brought into the enterprise in huge numbers and affecting the need for even more storage capacity. On the consumer side, these devices are also driving the need for better, cheaper and more available storage alternatives.

In 2010 more IT managers than ever will turn their attention to virtualizing storage. As server sprawl proliferates, companies will continue spending an inordinate amount of time managing, maintaining and troubleshooting distributed resources, making more IT managers than ever seriously consider virtualization as a better alternative to manage hardware deployments. In this economic climate and throughout 2010, storage virtualization will grow in importance and value as more IT managers try to improve their total cost of ownership, while keeping up with employee demand and taming unstructured data.
