Mark Bowker, Enterprise Strategy Group senior analyst, said Virsto is seeking to solve a big problem for server virtualization customers. "It's no secret that storage is the biggest challenge in a virtual environment," Bowker said. "Storage is VMware's No. 1 support call issue. Virsto snaps into customers' existing architecture, and can address storage contention issues." Bowker said that adding VMware support should significantly increase Virsto's market presence. "You almost never find a customer not doing server virtualization, so this is an opportunity for them to go in to any customer now," he said.
Virsto sets sites on improving VMware storage performance.
