Storage virtualization is a critical component of IT virtualization. Benefits of server virtualization — such as improved utilization, flexibility, responsiveness, workload mobility and disaster recovery — can be limited if only part of the infrastructure is virtualized. Storage virtualization is also one of the foundations for effective cloud deployment and software defined infrastructures. IBM offers a variety of storage virtualization solutions to meet the needs of companies of all sizes.
