Storage virtualisation

Centralised management of storage


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