In virtual server environments, IT organizations have many different applications running on a single shared server.  Some applications may require different levels of service (e.g., RAID 10 vs. RAID 5). In addition, applications may require file-level and/or block-level services to run most efficiently. 

This Webcast will address solutions for the following storage issues faced by all virtual server managers and administrators: 

·        Storage management complexity

·        Underutilized storage

·        Data protection issues for remote offices, branch offices (ROBOs)

·        Skill sets of IT staff

·        Energy efficiency, or “green,” issues

 In particular, the Webcast will explore the benefits of using a combination of iSCSI-based IP SANs and NAS to maximize storage performance and efficiency in virtual server environments.
