Free eBook: A Better Way To Allocate and Manage Shared Storage [EMC]

Servers, Storage and Networking | Posted on June 12, 2012 by Emily A. Davidson

Limited IT budgets, constant demand for 24 × 7 access to information and growing unstructured data got you down? You’re not alone. It’s for these reasons and more that many organizations are making the switch to a virtualized environment. The trick is shared storage brings about a host of other complexities involving management, provisioning, allocation and support for virtual clients.

So how do organizations move to shared storage without adding unnecessary complexities and inefficiencies?

Unified storage is the way forward.
Unified storage (sometimes termed network unified storage) is a storage system that makes it possible to run and manage files and applications from a single device. To this end, a unified storage system consolidates file-based and block-based access (and some systems we’ll cover in the eBook can also include object based storage) into a single storage platform and supports iSCSI, SAN, and NAS.

In our eBook, we look at the current storage landscape and the drivers that have created the need for a unified solution. We also offer solutions and best practices for handling these challenges and a case study of how EMC’s VNX family of products helped Moomin World gain:

  • Exceptional storage in a tiered environment
  • Intuitive management wizards
  • VMware capabilities
  • Cost-effective prices
  • Two controllers

EMC’s VNX family is designed for virtual data centers, addressing the management and allocation of virtual environments while reducing the hassle of shared storage complexity.
