Virsto’s storage hypervisor does for storage what the server hypervisor did for servers.
The Promise of Virtualization
When companies started to virtualize their servers, the main reason was to save money. By consolidating their servers, companies were able to drive up the utilization of their compute resource and reduce the total number of physical servers in their datacenters. Not only did companies save money on their servers, but they also saved money on power, cooling and space in the datacenter. However, as companies have progressed from initial server consolidation to fully virtualized server workloads, they have realized that, on the whole, they haven’t saved as much money as they originally expected to.
The Hidden Cost of Server Virtualization
When companies look at their server virtualization project after 3 years, they realize that almost all the money saved on purchasing fewer servers has been spent on additional storage. The server virtualization transformation led companies to purchase commodity servers but attach high-end storage to support the virtualized workloads running on these commodity servers.
