The challenge is clear: Maximize the number of virtual machines (VMs) on each physical host in your environment without sacrificing storage performance. Data storage managers from companies of all sizes and vertical industries know the power of VMs, and the problems associated with the increase in random I/O pushed through their infrastructures. From the network to switches to controllers and devices, storage pros must systematically make their way through their virtualized environments to maximize their storage investment.

In this e-chapter, storage expert George Crump outlines the major VMware performance tuning points and asks storage pros to consider everything from network interface cards to CPU-related performance and SSDs as a tool for improving performance. Learn the fundamentals of troubleshooting storage performance issues in a VMware environment with Crump's how-to advice.  Access >>>
