LeftHanded Complement

HP is a major player in virtualization. It has a couple of lines of servers it virtualizes, a thin client strategy, plenty of management tools and a whole bunch of storage. It has so much in the virtualization space, it took me about a month to figure it all out and write this feature.

HP is strengthening its virtual storage hand by shelling out $360 million to buy LeftHand Networks, an up-and-coming maker of iSCSI storage.

I think storage is the next frontier in virtualization, but the industry has to work on overall definitions, standards and tools that are easier to install and manage. What is the reality of virtual storage? Shoot your thoughts and experiences off to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
