  24. 24. Server Hypervisor -What does virtualization help you achieve 1. Resources are consolidated & virtualized – pooled together and accessed anywhere.- Virtual machines – better utilization (as opposed to physical array-boundary limitations) 2. Services are standardized & Data Mobility – selected from a service catalog. (as opposed to customized configuration)- Vmotion 3. Provisioning is self-service – administrators use automation to allocate capacity from the catalog. (as opposed to manual component-level provisioning) 4. Usage is paid per use – end users are aware of the impact of their consumption and service level choices. (as opposed to paid from a central IT budget) HOW ABOUT A HYPERVISOR FOR YOUR STORAGE 22nd – 24th November 2012, Jaipur
