Primary Data VMworld 2015 VVOLs Survey Key Findings

  1. 1. October 2015 VMworld U.S. Survey
  2. 2. Methodology  Survey was conducted at VMworld 2015 in San Francisco  Live survey intercepts  355 responses 2
  3. 3. Key Findings  Most of the enterprise is now virtualized  Much interest in VVOLs, but it is early days  Challenges are holding back VVOL implementation 3
  4. 4. Most of the Enterprise is Now Virtualized  Nearly half have virtualized more than 80 percent of their infrastructure  73 percent have virtualized more than 60 percent 4
  5. 5. Much Interest in VVOLs, but it is Early Days  60 percent involved with VVOLs in some way – Yet, just 7 percent have completed VVOL installation  Why? Top drivers include: – Simplify storage – Improve storage scalability – Improve VM manageability 5
  6. 6. Challenges are Holding Back VVOL Implementation  Lack of VVOL expertise within IT staff  Performance issues  Migration issues  43 percent cite incomplete VVOL support from their storage vendor as a challenge 6
  7. 7. Primary Data Recommendations  Examine how data virtualization can complement server virtualization to further optimize datacenter efficiency and cost savings  Enable universal VVOL support with existing storage through data virtualization  Simplify VVOL management to streamline IT learning curve 7
