Virtualized storage, or storage virtualization, is a technological concept developed within the past few decades. It enables organizations to remove the traditional boundaries of physical storage devices, by abstracting the disks and drives, and presenting them as a single, centralized pool of storage capacity.
Today’s organizations are generating more data at the edge than ever before, and are grappling with processing and managing that data, in a cost-effective, efficient manner. Government agencies are no exception to this trend; however, they have unique requirements when it comes to data storage in terms of compliance and regulations, accessibility, and IT support. […]
Over the years, mindsets towards onsite IT have changed drastically — particularly when it comes to retail store infrastructure. Retail businesses are moving away from traditional storage infrastructure and instead focusing on implementing virtualized storage solutions that are de-centralized in application control, yet centralized in management.
