Today we’re discussing storage and storage management. The importance of storage can’t be understated. Nor, unfortunately, can the impact of the cost of doing storage right. And storage needs are never decreasing, are they?
“Are you kidding?”
Both VMware and Microsoft have solutions to address the flexible management of storage, and even some features that can automate the intelligent allocation and distribution of storage. So in today’s article in our “VMware or Microsoft?” series, my friend Keith Mayer will be comparing and contrasting those solutions in the following areas:
- Hot-adding VM Storage
- Live Expand and Compact of VM Storage
- Live Storage Migration
- Automatically Move VM Storage across Storage Classes
And if you’re wondering what these storage features will cost you, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what Microsoft is including for no extra charge.
