Increasingly, enterprises are turning to server virtualization to enhance IT flexibility while reducing costs. Server virtualization solutions such as VMware Infrastructure software help to achieve those goals by abstracting applications from physical resources. With VMware, administrators can run multiple applications on the same physical machine. As a result, VMware helps increase resource utilization, accelerate the provisioning of new applications, simplify server management and improve disaster recovery.

By using VMware and the Dell Compellent SAN together, enterprises can compound the benefits of virtualization. This paper addresses the following technical advantages and describes how they allow the Dell Compellent SAN to optimize VMware server virtualization:

  • Thin Provisioning Conserves Storage Capacity

  • Automated Tiered Storage Maximizes VM Storage Performance and Efficiency

  • Server Instant Replay Minimizes the Capacity Needed for VM Clones

  • Automatic LUN Masking Accelerates VM Storage Provisioning
