About this talk

The 5 Reasons Why Storage Is Eating Away Your Virtualization ROI And How To Stop It The initial return on investment (ROI) of a server or desktop virtualization projects are impressive. The potential cost savings associated with eliminating dozens of physical servers or the reduction in operations time to manage thousands of user desktops, can be rewarding. But as the virtualization projects move further into production and begins to scale, the storage infrastructure that supports these projects begins to show weaknesses that can eat away at any ROI gains. The problem is that the compute architecture radically changes but the storage architecture does not. Legacy storage infrastructure typically falls short because it continues to use a disk based architecture and operates at the LUN and volume level with no granular understanding of the virtual machines (VMs) it is supporting. This mismatch with the host means that storage has to be constantly managed and tuned to adapt to ever changing IO workloads. This tuning is often done in the dark because most storage systems provide very limited to no performance analysis or end-to-end insight. In this Webinar, join George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Geoff Stedman from Tintri, will discuss the five limitations of legacy storage in virtualized environments: •Storage Performance •Management complexity •Maintaining HA/DR •Achieving Scalability •Retaining TCO/ROI Our discussion will cover these limitations that legacy storage places on virtualization and how those limitations can eat away at your virtualization investment. Most importantly, by attending this webinar you’ll learn how to prevent ROI erosion from impacting your virtualization initiatives.
