Give your computing performance a boost by bringing your storage and virtual machine workloads closer together.

Combining a converged infrastructure and a virtualization platform like VMware's Virtual SAN brings more flexibility in how to optimize your storage servers.

Virtual SAN delivers compute and storage in a common virtualized platform.

5 Considerations for Enhancing a Storage Server for a Virtualized Environment:

1. Consider the level of performance you need for specific workloads, such as storing financial data.

2. Go for a hybrid configuration of both flash and spinning hard drives, but consider all flash in the future.

3. Manage compute and storage through a single interface by using VMware VSAN, which is built into the VMware vSphere server virtualization platform.

4. Build in a replication scheme to back up data. If a node fails, another node in a cluster can still provide access to critical data.

5. Follow the requirements of your software company. VMware VSAN requires at least one solid state drive (flash) and one hard drive for each node that contributes to capacity.
