Storage virtualisation can help reduce storage and backup complexity together with management overheads by pooling the resources of physical storage from multiple network storage devices into, what appears to be, a single storage device that is managed from a central console. Storage virtualisation helps the storage administrator perform the tasks of backup, archiving, and recovery more easily and in less time, by disguising the actual complexity of the Storage Area Network.
Single point of entry
The storage virtualisation approach enables a single point of entry to storage resources, irrespective of your back-end infrastructure.
You can also add new hardware from multiple vendors seamlessly as your storage needs increase, so you can make hardware purchasing decisions based on performance and value for money – rather than brand alone.
Storage virtualisation solutions help you increase hardware utilisation and reduce your management costs. What’s more, they support data replication across the entire storage environment, helping you ensure business continuity and streamline critical backup processes.

Centralise and re-provision
We group together multiple heterogeneous storage arrays which normally have their own proprietary methods of creating and provisioning LUNS. Then we tie them together into a virtual POOL of storage, where you can now use a single method to create and provision a LUN from any part of the pool.
