Storage Virtualization, Cloud, Tiered Storage.
Enterprises in the corporate world demand high speed data protection for all kinds of data. Issues such as complex server environments with high administrative costs and low data protection have to be resolved. In addition to data protection, enterprises demand the ability to recover/restore critical information in various situations. Traditional storage management solutions such as direct-attached storage (DAS), network-attached storage (NAS) and storage area networks (SAN) have been devised to address such problems. Storage virtualization is the emerging technology that amends the underlying complications of physical storage by introducing the concept of cloud storage environments. This paper covers the DAS, NAS and SAN solutions of storage management and emphasizes the benefits of storage virtualization. The paper discusses a potential cloud storage structure based on which storage virtualization architecture will be proposed.
