Virtual machines require storage space to store programs, data and system files. It can be challenging to manage that amount of storage without the proper tools. These tips can help administrators improve efficiency, security, and utilization by managing virtual storage.

Tip 1: Make use of a specific tool. Although it is possible to manage a virtual storage system with ordinary software, it requires additional work and is not as transparent as using a specialized tool. A tool designed specifically for this purpose can offer greater management, which can reduce the cost of labor and overhead.

Tip 2: Be on the lookout with updates. Vendors frequently release updates to improve functionality, increase performance and address security concerns. Administrators should take the time to test and apply these updates to avoid disruptions or outages. Tip 3: Develop a caching plan. Many virtual storage devices offer the ability to cache data to speed up access. This feature can reduce read/write operations and boost application performance. Ensure the cache is sized to meet the performance requirements and choose devices that have sufficient endurance to deliver on performance promises.

A SAN volume controller, such as IBM Easy Tier, can automatically transfer data between higher and lower-cost storage levels based on the needs. This can assist organizations in dealing with seasonal fluctuations, such as during the enrollment period, where the demand for high-speed arrays is high. It can also help companies reduce budget pressures, by limiting costs during periods of low or no growth.
