Companies of all sizes are either implementing server virtualization, expanding earlier pilot efforts, or exploring how to begin these projects. The widespread success results from the ability to improve efficiency while lowering capital expenditures. However, limitations with current generation infrastructure can reduce the effectiveness. In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components - with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the data center architecture.
