Data center architects naturally seek to employ server virtualization to maximize the use of their hardware systems. However, one factor – often overlooked – carries real potential to undermine this goal. That factor is data connectivity. This article examines the importance of data connectivity in a virtualized environment, and the need to take an intelligent approach to data access to truly reap the benefits of your virtualization strategy.
Just recently, a really good friend of mine, Mike Johnson, was published in SOA Magazine reflecting on why Data Connectivity is so important in virtualized environments. As people move to consolidate server and IT infrastructure for various reasons it is good to know that someone is actually THINKING about how this will affect your performance for your most important applications - those that access business critical data. Take a quick read through the article to see how it can help save you time and money in your virtualization efforts.
