Aligning Virtualization and Storage Management

One of the biggest challenges in virtualized infrastructures impacting application performance, is the ability to manage resource contention in the underlying storage infrastructure. A common approach to address these challenges is to over provision storage platforms with I/O and disk capacity, but this is a trade off, which leads to a higher cost per gig of storage allocated to every virtual machine. Storage domain technologies such as thin provisioning, deduplication and compression compound these challenges by obfuscating the available underlying storage space, making it difficult to maximize storage space efficiency and manage risk.

Storage cost and performance issues combined are preventing the adoption of virtualization over physical platforms as the primary choice for mission critical and other I/O intensive applications, and significantly impact operational costs associated with Service Assurance.

VMTurbo Operations Manager with the VMTurbo storage extension provides a new innovative approach to address these challenges, enabling Enterprises and Service Providers to significantly reduce their infrastructure and operational costs, assure application performance, and virtualize mission critical IO intensive applications with confidence. 

In this whitepaper, they explore the challenges of holistically controlling and optimizing storage in a virtualized datacenter and the VMTurbo solution.
