Storage Virtualization Wrap Up

Melanie Yarbrough Profile: MelanieYarbrough

As April draws to a close, so does Storage Virtualization month. Not to worry; we’ve compiled all of our greatest resources from this past month for quick reference as we move forward. From IT questions to articles, blog posts, and Twitter lists, our wrap-up is a great beginner’s – or dummy’s – guide for moving forward in your storage virtualization implementation.

From the Enterprise IT Watch Blog

Storage Virtualization 101

The Storage Network Industry Association has a booklet that covers the “different terms, types, locations, and technologies of storage virtualization and the data services that can be built on it” as well as descriptions of “implementation step by step and aspects of availability, performance, and capacity improvements.” Whether you’re interested in the role of storage virtualization or the many hypotheticals of the deployment, check out the SNIA’s booklet on storage virtualization (PDF).

Storage Virtualization FAQs

From Open IT Forum discussions to members curious about the technology, we’ve seen some thought-provoking discussions. Have a question about storage virtualization that wasn’t asked in the forums? Head over and ask it yourself. And don’t forget to tag it “storage virtualization”!
