Whitepaper by Rawlinson Rivera (thank you)
VMware’s Software-Defined Storage vision and strategy is to drive transformation through the hypervisor, bringing to storage the same operational efficiency that server virtualization brought to compute. As the abstraction between applications and available resources, the hypervisor can balance all IT resources – compute, memory, storage and networking – needed by an application. With server virtualization as the de-facto platform to run enterprise applications, VMware is uniquely positioned to deliver Software-Defined Storage utilizing the pervasiveness of this software tier.
