Virtualized infrastructures consolidate servers, most of which have typically modest workloads, into finite groups of virtual hosts that produce a combined high storage I/O performance demand and one that is innately random. This is a perfect use case for solid state storage and, as Storage Switzerland discussed in Part I of Enhancing Server And Desktop Virtualization With SSD, the virtual environment can cost effectively use solid state storage. In this Part II of Enhancing Server And Desktop Virtualization With SSD, Storage Switzerland focuses on the next challenge of integrating SSD into a virtual server or desktop infrastructure and effectively using the technology in this environment.
