The survey questioned 1,000 selected executives as to the solutions they were considering implementing into their company's virtualization strategy to help overcome the needs of high-performance applications on their storage networks. Topping the list of responses for meeting the storage challenges posed by virtualization was NAS optimization solutions and NAS controller upgrades at 26 percent each. The least popular options considered were read-only caching (5 percent) and short-stroking hard drives (3 percent).

"With more than half of respondents achieving 50 percent server virtualization by 2014 and 35 percent of organization expecting to have more than two-thirds of servers virtualized in the same time period, the interest in solutions to help them overcome the storage challenges posed by virtualization has never been greater," said Rebecca Thompson, VP of Marketing at Avere Systems.  "We expect that our upcoming webinar will enlighten attendees as to what they can do to stem the tide against this growing issue.  In what is sure to be a 'not to miss' event, we look forward to showing real-world solutions that are available today to help companies get a leg up on the virtualization issues they may be facing tomorrow."
