Virtual data center architecture: Storage Purchasing Intentions fall 2012 survey

3/5

VM storage management

VM storage management continues to challenge IT administrators. Over the four Purchasing Intentions surveys that Storage magazine has conducted in the past two years, users' complaints about virtualization's impact on storage haven't changed much. Sixty percent say they're using more storage than they did in the physical server environment, and almost 50% are looking for new tools to manage storage for their VMs.

When it comes to storage for virtual desktop infrastructures, Fibre Channel SAN remains the top choice among survey respondents at 17%, with iSCSI SAN and NAS trailing at 11% each.
