Download Enterprises are deploying private and hosted clouds to respond faster to business demands for new applications, to improve service levels for given workloads, and to reduce cost across the datacenter. The enterprise storage architecture deployed is paramount to ensuring agility, performance, and reliability of a private or hosted cloud. Integration of storage infrastructure across hypervisors, cloud orchestration software, and open source architectures is required. Storage architectures for private and hosted clouds must support a range of mixed application workloads and the dynamic placement of data on the right storage tier. These essential storage functions enable faster service response times, improved service-level agreements (SLAs), and greater agility, performance, and reliability for private and hosted clouds.
