Overview

The storage market is noisy. On the surface, storage providers tout all-flash, more models and real-time analytics. But under the covers lies a dirty little secret—their operating systems (the foundation of storage) are all the same… built on LUNs and volumes.

It’s called VM-aware storage (VAS), and if you’ve got a large virtual footprint, it’s something you need to explore further. Fortunately this guide offers you (the visionary) a closer look at VAS and the chance to see storage differently. Check it out.
