As the IT industry absorbs and adopts trends like convergence and 'software defined', there's a growing understanding that finding a way to better orchestrate storage is a crucial component. While the semantics may vary a little, there is already a promising -- indeed proven -- candidate technology that's available for this -- the storage hypervisor. By making storage assets as flexible as server hardware has become with virtualization, a storage hypervisor can transform the economics of virtualization, delivering reduced costs, greater efficiency, added functionality and scale.
