A Service-Oriented Data Grid: Beyond Storage Virtualization
The storage industry talks about "virtualization" in static and device-specific contexts, while enterprise IT organizations are under pressure to deliver a range of data "services" to their customers, with a tiered pricing model and verifiable service levels. These disparate producer- and consumer-oriented views of storage leave an implementation gap that must be filled in order to realize the "virtual everything" vision of enterprise grid computing. We will identify key storage and data management trends that are evolving to deliver this service-oriented view of data.
