  • 27. To Microsoft & VMwareAre the Needs of Manufacturing Operations Unique?To Microsoft & VMwareAre the Needs of Manufacturing Operations Unique?Smaller implementations of virtualization (e.g. smallmanufacturing control rooms) do not warrant expensive SANinfrastructures. Local storage solutions make more sense inthese cases. Will your software continue to support localstorage implementation in the long term?Drivers to adopt virtualization in manufacturing environmentsinclude reduction of technical "churn" of hardware, operatingsystem and software applications. While virtualization easessystem and software applications. While virtualization easessome of this, it also adds to it. Would you consider extendingbase hypervisor support (e.g. security and critical patches) sothat a hypervisor version has at least the same useful life asth d l i h d ?the underlying hardware?27© ARC Advisory GroupWhat Can You Do to Help?
