Virtualizing Storage within Cloud Computing Infrastructures Using VMware vSphere 4.0 and Dell EqualLogic iSCSI SANs
Traditionally, VMs and SANs have lacked advanced integration, making ongoing management, data protection, and disaster recovery complex for organizations that have implemented server consolidation through virtualization. Dell and VMware are helping to simplify these operations for cloud computing infrastructures by delivering advanced automation, intelligence, and integration designed to meet the emerging requirements for a 100% virtualized data center environment. By combining VMware vSphere 4.0 and Dell EqualLogic PS Series Virtualized iSCSI SANs, organizations can pave the way for a cloud computing infrastructure that encompasses servers, storage, and networks.
VMware and Dell offer an evolutionary, non-disruptive path to cloud computing for new and existing customers, providing the ability to more efficiently and effectively manage existing applications while delivering new services and building the path to virtual private clouds.
