    4. 4. Evolving Storage Needs for Virtualized Data center • “Data centers” are becoming “Service Centers” • Cloud computing is driving the need to deliver complete integrated stacks, not just components • On-going need for greater optimization & efficiency • Requirements are going beyond “just” space provisioning • Isolated hypervisors and storage silos are not good enough • Users need full stack provisioning and management Storage Needs to Deliver Ready to Run Services4 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    5. 5. Top Storage Challenges with Server Virtualization• Driving simultaneous Server and Storage consolidation: naturally occur together• Managing rapid growth and large capacity systems• Maintaining performance with unpredicted chaotic workloads (i.e. “Boot Storms”)• Avoiding storage silos• Completing backups on time• Allowing scale to IaaS5 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    6. 6. Application-Driven Virtualization • Virtualization offers key cost savings benefits  Server consolidation  Lower energy, facility and labor costs • But - the goal is not “virtualization” itself. Virtualization must enable the entire stack to be:  Easier to DEPLOY  Easier to MANAGE  Easier to SUPPORT6 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    7. 7. Oracle Virtualization• Oracle’s virtualization strategy offers much more:  Most comprehensive  Fully tested with applications  Designed for full stack deployments  Integrated, full stack management  Integrated support7 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates.
