"Within the F1000 and MSE organizations, consolidation and virtualization adoption are continuing to climb to the head of Storage professionals' list of top initiatives. They are considered to be key dynamics that are causing network storage growth, and are among the technologies that will have the greatest impact on storage architecture," said Robert Stevenson, TIP's Managing Director of Storage Research. "Because server virtualization will have such drastic effects on architecture, bringing about many new concerns, such as scalability, support matrices, and recovery integrity, many storage teams are over-provisioning the solution and are putting it primarily on Tier 1 products."
