Overview:

A challenge that has long plagued storage administrators is that applications use storage in different ways. Some applications make use of storage at the block level, while others depend on file-level storage. Historically, the solution was to maintain two separate storage architectures. However, a new crop of unified storage systems promise to deliver an unprecedented degree of flexibility and to drive down storage management costs. This would seemingly make unified storage an obvious choice for storage admins struggling with disparate storage requirements; but, like many things in IT, vendor hype might not always be solidly based in reality. This report outlines the considerations and technical features that must be taken into account before investing in a unified storage appliance so you can obtain a clear picture of how and when they’re appropriate for your IT shop.
