Course Overview Thanks to a smart software layer that allows you to abstract away the complexities of the underlying physical storage system, storage virtualization makes storage easy. My name is David Davis, and I'm confident that you'll enjoy my latest course, The Fundamentals of Storage Virtualization. I've been writing, teaching, and speaking about enterprise technologies and cloud computing now for over 10 years. During that time, I've created over 50 Pluralsight courses, and this is one of the best courses yet. Storage virtualization is used by server virtualization in the data center. It's used by desktop virtualization on your local laptop. And, yes, it's used more and more to virtualize functions of costly and complex storage arrays. Like server virtualization, storage virtualization brings with it business agility, administrative efficiency, and cost savings. You'll be able to do in software what previously was only available with a storage area network. Once you virtualize that storage, you'll free yourself from that aging, complex, and expensive storage area network. Even better, you'll gain a ton of efficiency and advanced functionality. Are you ready to learn more? In this course, you'll start off by learning what storage virtualization is and how it works. From there, we'll explore different storage virtualization solutions, how to use them, and how they can make your life easier. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of storage virtualization. And one of the great things about this course is you don't need to know anything to get started. So buckle up, grab a beverage, and join me on this short adventure into the world of storage virtualization.
