  1. I’m looking forward to this sessions. I’d suggest that the questions focus on how storage technologies can accelerate the adoption of virtual infrastructures and cloud deployments.

    I think VAAI and the future of vStorage APIs, Storage IO Control, SAN vs NAS, Storage Efficiencies like thin provisioning, Storage Federation, etc…

    Questions pertaining to specific vendor technologies should be directed to vendor booths on the show floor.

    How do the storage vendors deal with storage “bloat” on primary storage, that result from supporting hypervisors on shared storage infrastructure? Is that capability part of the core primary storage or an add-on?

    How do the storage vendors address backup/recovery in large hypervisor environments and what type of recovery time objectives can be anticipated for those environments (say, for 1000 VMs and 10,000 VMs), assuming the entire environment needs to be recovered? What other equipment or software is needed to do this, beyond their core storage?
