Overview:

Servers play a crucial role in daily enterprise operations. But even the most powerful and resilient servers are useless without adequate storage. Storage solutions contain the operating systems, applications and virtual images needed to operate every server. Most important, storage methods hold valuable data that every corporation needs in order to be a successful operation.


 


All storage is not the same, though. Disk drive characteristics vary dramatically. Individual disks can be combined into groups that enhance performance and redundancy. Diverse connectivity options support growing storage needs of local servers as well as networks and WANs. Disks are aggregated into sophisticated arrays to improve storage organization and consolidation. Additionally, storage resources can be virtualized to simplify storage management and maximize the use of available disk space in the data center.


 


Inside this eBook:



  • Deconstructing disk drive technology

  • Connection and termination concerns

  • Expanding storage capacity with disk arrays

  • Essentials of storage virtualization

  • Resources from Dell, Inc.
