One of the highly-consumed devices in the computer system is the storage device. More often, people are correct to put so much concern about how to save storage spaces by allocating it effectively and efficiently.
In the world of virtualization, there is a method that is practically applicable especially for those who are minding their storage usage. This is known as the storage virtualization or simply the manner of creating a virtual storage to support the host storage from being exhausted. This is possible by creating an abstraction between the logical repository, meaning the virtualized storage, and the physical repository.
Storage Virtualization aids a computer user in the achievement of independently locating the correct storage form thru effective abstraction of the definite physical place of the date in the physical storage. What the virtualization does in the process is the correct presentation of the logical map space of the data. However, when you talk about the mapping process, there are several mapping process that virtualization can take depending on the hardware device implementation that is being used for mapping.
One of the good things that storage virtualization can proudly claim is the capability of the virtualization process to secure the data from being destroyed and disrupted during the migration process from the physical to logical storage device. The abstraction process also allows for the server to perform concurrently the migration process and the access to the Input and Output device altogether.
The storage virtualization is fast becoming an intelligent option for people who are trying to allocate spaces on their storage devices.
