Server virtualization and storage virtualization go hand in hand. Centralized, virtualized storage is crucial for advanced server virtualization to be flexible and easy to manage. Companies are realizing that to unleash the real potential of cloud agile infrastructure, storage virtualization has to become mainstream like server virtualization.
For many companies, there is a constant need for additional storage resources to support growing volumes of information. And if you don’t focus on managing your storage infrastructure, you can find that one virtual server is running out of storage capacity, even while there is ample capacity in other parts of the network.
With storage virtualization, companies now can make better use of existing investments in disk capacity and can often postpone the need to purchase additional capacity. As storage becomes virtualized, it becomes easier to manage and helps companies to adapt to business needs much faster. And not to forget, it actually costs less!

In response to: The BIG Questions at PulseThose are great questions.
Additionally, you should consider asking yourself these questions that relate to, "What's the Value of this Data to the organization?"
1. Do you have a plan for recovery of that data if lost or corrupted?
2. How fast is that data growing and how are you dealing with the growth?
3. How are you providing increasing service levels with lower cost?
By attending the Storage and Information Infrastructure track at Pulse 2010, you'll find the answers to the questions I've added along with answers to any additional questions you may have concerning your storage, data, and information management.
