Storage Virtualization
Overcome physical barriers between resources and increase storage utilization and flexibility

Storage Virtualization

Overview:

Storage virtualization enables storage systems to overcome physical barriers between resources and thereby optimize storage utilization and increase flexibility. Capacity of a storage system is consolidated into a storage pool, from which capacity can be flexibly allocated to applications. Coupled with thin provisioning and scale-out technology, storage virtualization on Infortrend's systems provides resource efficiency, easy management, operational resilience and increased availability at reduced costs. The ability to effectively and promptly respond to changing IT needs will translate into a competitive edge in the business world.

Benefits:
