iSCSI SANs-VMware positioning iSCSI is a key technology that delivers scalable, cost-effective, high-performance virtualized SAN environments. In a Fibre Channel SAN, changes with the infrastructure are time-consuming and error- prone, because the devices are attached to the network via a physical port address, specifically assigned and encoded within the device’s hardware. iSCSI support broadens the potential for full VMware deployments in both small and medium businesses by eliminating the cost and complexity of Fibre Channel SANs 16 July 201516 July 201516 July 201516 July 2015 HP internal use5
Virtualization exposes storage pains 6HP Confidential - Restricted to HP and HP partners Highly Available Virtualization is a simple, cost effective way to implement beyond the box high availability and disaster recovery. Traditional storage can limit implementations. Scalability and Flexibility Virtualization enables quick response to new business needs. Storage needs provide flexibility to scale with changing application demands. Performance Virtualization exposes performance bottlenecks. By increasing the utilization of your servers they demand more from the infrastructure and bottlenecks are exposed. Manageability Virtual server sprawl leads to a complex storage environment and requires configuration flexibility. Solving performance issues become more difficult. Cost Customers can spend all of the money they’ve just saved with virtualization on expensive, inefficient SAN storage.
