Using affordable shared storage to maximize high availability and fault tolerance in VMware environments

Shared SAN enables all vSphere servers to see the same storage, enabling movement of VMs and applications across redundant infrastructure. This architecture opens up tremendous flexibility and IT managers can move applications without impacting user access or uptime. This is a lifesaver when it comes to maintenance; move a VM and application, perform maintenance, migrate back--without users even noticing.

Without SAN, VMs are limited to one physical server and direct-attached storage and are subject to downtime for maintenance or extended downtime in the event of a failure.

Adding the Easy Tier of Storage for Cloud Computing

The latest architecture for building a cloud computing infrastructure in smaller IT environments

Companies of all sizes are looking for their IT department to deliver virtualization solutions as a service. VMware vCloud allows IT administrators to leverage existing VMware technologies to build public or private clouds. vCloud provides a way to pool IT resources on-demand as self-managed virtual infrastructures.

But to get to the cloud, new and existing resources must be easier to provision, manage, and monitor. Although VMware vCloud Director is a technology that was first used by service providers, it can be used in any sized organization to raise service levels and lower costs. Drobo provides the easy-to-use storage component with a price structure enabling SMB IT to deploy tier 2 or 3 storage beside enterprise-class, top-tier storage.
