Evolving Solutions Addresses the Value of Storage Virtualization—Answers Industry’s Most Pressing Questions

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

IT Architect Evolving Solutions raises awareness in the IT storage industry about the value of investing in storage virtualization.Minneapolis, MN June 29, 2006http://www.evolvingsol.com — Evolving Solutions, a data on demand and storage virtualization expert, is taking steps to raise industry awareness of the value of investing in storage virtualization.The concept of storage virtualization has been around for a number of years, but until recently, it has not gained widespread acceptance.”As with many revolutionary ideas, it takes time for companies to become comfortable with the idea of placing another device into the heart of the data path between their storage and their servers,” said Mike Keeler, Storage Architect at Evolving Solutions. “The promises of virtualization are many, but so are the risks.”Implementing an incorrect or inadequate storage virtualization solution would negatively impact a company’s entire data infrastructure. Therefore, the acceptance of virtualization has followed the same path as Storage Area Networks (SAN), which were discussed for years before the industry finally accepted them.Evolving Solutions is taking an active role in raising awareness via its Technical Briefings on Storage Virtualization, which are designed to educate participants in ways that storage virtualization can be used to:• Simplify storage infrastructures• Optimize storage utilization• Build a data on-demand operating environment.”The benefits of storage virtualization by far outweigh the risks,” said Keeler. “The cost benefits of having a single administrator and the capability to control hundreds of terabytes or petabytes of storage capacity, are just too substantial to ignore.”Attend an Evolving Solutions Technical Briefing on Storage Virtualization to hear pressing questions answered.
