Virtual storage does away with the traditional, monolithic storage array, replacing it with a distributed pool of virtualized storage resources. With storage virtualization, a hypervisor separates the storage capacity from the underlying disc hardware. This capacity is pooled and presented as unified storage resources. Abstracted virtual storage is considerably more scalable than traditional storage devices. There are virtually no maximum device limitations, and performance and capacity can be added without the need for migration or downtime.
yCenter eliminates these limitations by providing a software-defined solution that allows you to build a highly-scalable distributed storage platform that provides elastic provisioning and unmatched flexibility without the need for additional licenses, SAN hardware, or expensive infrastructure components.
