What is Virtual Server Storage?

A virtual server is a server that shares hardware and software resources with other operating systems (OS), in contrast to dedicated physical servers. Server virtualisation is a critical component of the modern IT data center. 

Although efficiency gains and cost savings realized from virtualised environments can provide significant infrastructure savings, many organisations seeking to expand their usage of virtualisation encounter challenges with hardware design that create complexities and increase costs. An efficient virtualised environment blends servers, networking, storage and backup – any one bottleneck can drive inefficiency across other components, and those inefficiencies can be difficult to diagnose. Integrating solid-state storage, with its greater speed, reliability and flexibility, can go a long way toward ensuring that virtualisation can scale as needed, and in a cost-effective manner.
