[Sponsored] – Converged Storage: A Next Gen Virtualized Architecture.
There is new document available in my Free Virtualization Content section, which informs about converged storage for virtualization architecture. This PDF document sponsored by HP and Intel, show you with some real case examples, that traditional storage hits it’s limits. Usually because the traditional storage arrays has been designed 20 years ago, when the workloads has been much less important than today.
While virtualization has brought some huge benefits to the IT, with HA and flexible DR or major cost savings, the storage has created problems, because storage isn’t flexible, and can cause a bottleneck.
Savings realized through virtualization with virtualizing all possible physical servers is great, but sometimes the SAN device which is in the middle of all that, just can’t keep up, and there is the bottleneck.
Downtime in server hardware failure can be handled by High Availability (HA), but SAN failure does not, so the storage can become as single point of failure.

A quick quote from the PDF:
Server virtualization has transformed Corporate IT: reducing hardware expense, saving floor space and cutting energy use. For storage, virtualization has created some problems.
In this IDG Tech Dossier, learn how HP’s Converged Storage will enable organizations to deploy storage faster, reduce the time it takes to deliver IT services, reduce energy use and physical space requirements and cut the time and expense of managing storage systems.
And also here:
Typical SANs are monolithic, consisting of a dual controller behind which are multiple disks. This type of rigid structure requires a tight coupling between workloads and storage, making it difficult to create a volume, expand its size or move it without disruption. This architecture also requires IT to buy storage capacity before it’s needed, which translates into high up-front costs.
