Virtual SANs vs. Good old SANs: Can’t they just get along?

Presented by

Jim Bagley, Senior Analyst at SSG-NOW; Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing at DataCore Software

About this talk

Dark forces in the IT industry like to polarize popular opinion; most recently they argue for keeping all the storage in the servers using virtual SANs, leaving nothing external. These sudden mood swings, while attracting a young cult following, lose sight of lessons learned over the past 20 years. Truth is, a blend of internal storage close to the apps with good old fashioned external secondary storage out on the network makes a heck of a lot of sense. In this webinar, Senior Analyst Jim Bagley from SSG-NOW, discusses the not so black-and-white considerations driving customers to tap into the internal storage resources of clustered servers. Then Augie Gonzalez, storage virtualization expert from DataCore will provide some practical guidance on how to incorporate existing storage arrays and even public cloud capacity into your virtual SAN rollout.
