There is a disconnect in your data center. You’ve virtualized your applications, and your teams are thinking and working in virtual machines (VMs). But your storage hasn’t materially changed in decades — it still uses the same constructs (such as logical unit numbers, or LUNs) that were introduced for physical server workloads during an era that has long since passed. That disconnect between virtualized applications and conventional storage is costing your business time and money.  

Only VM‐aware storage (VAS) is specifically built for virtualized applications, stripping out the complexity of physical storage management so that you can focus on the applications that matter most for your business. With VAS, you can manage storage functions on individual applications, saving you time, money — and sanity.
