Design, Configure and Manage Storage for Virtual Environments with Howard Marks

Configuring storage to support the new server infrastructure has gotten tougher – making it more and more difficult for IT shops to reap the full benefits of virtualization. While networked storage is an essential piece of a virtualized infrastructure, most traditional storage systems are ill-equipped to deal with the fluctuating throughput, highly random writes/reads, high IOPs demands and latency issues common to virtualization. At our newest half-day seminar, independent expert Howard Marks – an industry leader with over 30 years of hands-on experience – uncovers best practices for optimizing storage configuration for the virtual environment.
