Data Proteciton for Virtual Environments at VMware VMworld

September 16, 2008 – 6:51 am

Storage I/O trends

Data protection for virtual environments including protecting virtual servers and virtual storage as well as using virtualization techniques to protect applications and data on non consolidated servers is gaining plenty of attention building on past, recent and this weeks as well as other forthcoming announcements during VMworld 2008 taking place now in Las Vegas. The last month or so has been busy with the usual analyst pre-briefing sessions for some of the items now announced as well as others that are still in the wings.

Here are a few links, one to a recent webcast (Industry Trends and Perspectives: Data Protection for Virtual Server Environments) along with another to an industry trends and perspective white paper titled “Data Protection Options for Virtual Servers”.

Now its time to get ready to travel off to New Orleans where I will be speaking about data protection and other related topics for virtual server and storage environments tonight at an event and then later this week in Chicago.

Ok, nuff said.
