Study Shows that Hybrid Storage Plays a Crucial Role in Mitigating Virtualization Issues
Hybrid cloud computing is a lot harder than it should be, mainly because cloud service providers (CSPs) and enterprise IT organizations are rarely standardized on the same virtual machine. The end result is that any time an organization wants to move data running in their local data center in a public cloud they need to convert it into a format that is compatible with the type of virtual machines used by the CSP. More often than not, that means converting VMware into some variation of the open source Xen hypervisor generally favored by CSPs such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Moving to significantly simply that process, FalconStor Software today unveiled a new version of its software-defined FreeStor storage software that both automatically handles that conversion
