Virtualization technology is becoming more and more prominent in IT environments. Both server virtualization and storage virtualization offer unique benefits. However, it is not until the two technologies are combined that users truly recognize the full benefits of the solution. The ability to scale both server and storage resources as needed is a tremendous benefit. Additionally, the combination of the two technologies, create new opportunities for value that previously did not exist. To the extent possible, IT executives should ensure that server & storage virtualization projects are strongly linked and architected at the same time.
