"Server virtualization is at an impasse, with traditional storage architectures the primary culprit in limiting its potential agility and cost-reduction benefits," said George Crump, chief steward, Storage Switzerland. "The traditional storage model is simply a mess as low utilization, complex management and massive costs are negating many of the benefits server virtualization was originally deployed to deliver. The storage system and its protocols have become THE roadblock for achieving all that server virtualization is able to provide. My presentation will help people understand this roadblock and how to resolve it."
