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
HP is strengthening its virtual storage hand by shelling out $360 million to
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 [email protected].
