Get Smart About Virtual SANs


Virtualization used to be all about servers. These days, however, its power is being extended right into the Storage Area Network (SAN).


The Technical University (TU) of Kaiserslautern in Germany, for example, expanded and virtualized its SAN based on elements from VMware of Palo Alto, Calif. (an EMC company) and SANmelody thin provisioning technology from DataCore Software Corp. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.


“On the technical side, SANmelody software delivers extensive functions for wide availability and protection for our VMware servers,” said Dr. Tonnis Pool, head of the departmental applications group in the data center at TU Kaiserslautern. “With VMware on the application side and DataCore on the storage side, we can implement virtualization today on several levels in much less time and ensure that our systems are more readily available. This has made our VMware environment failsafe.”
