Server virtualization pushes storage virtualization

Ryan Shopp Ryan Shopp Profile: Ryan Shopp


We recently published a story by Alex Barrett about NetApp and VMware working together so that clients can get a consistent copy of a VMware virtual machine using NetApp’s snapshots, which use the disk array.

Then, Byte and Switch published a story about HBA vendors such as Emulex and QLogic pouring their energy into improving storage virtualization (see Virtual HBAs Hitch Servers & Storage) with Virtual HBAs. From the story:

“Virtual HBAs are supposed to make it easier to manage VMs in SAN environments.”

Has the server virtualization inferno finally caused a storage virtualization spark in the virtualization industry? You be the judge.
