Server-Side, Converged Storage vs. Shared Storage
As I discussed at a recent event and covered in one of our top-read articles, “How Will Storage Controller Technology Evolve in 2014?“, this may be a year of significant change in the way we architect storage. There are three things driving this change. The first is the rise of the Hypervisor (VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, KVM, etc…). The second is the seemingly endless supply of CPU power that allows virtualization to work. And the third is the widespread availability of Flash SSD. These three factors are forcing legacy storage architectures to dramatically change while enabling improved storage architectures to emerge.
