Pillar Data Systems Survey Sees Server Virtualization Continuing To Grow
Pillar Data Systems Addresses Ease of Management, Performance Issues in Server Virtualization Environments

Implementing the Pillar Axiom in a virtual environment enables users to reduce virtual and storage deployment times, simplify overall server and storage management, and lower training costs, all while gaining as much as three times the disk utilization rate of competing storage systems.

Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino, one of the fastest growing casinos in California and features Las Vegas style slots and table games is an example of an organization that saw the benefits of implementing the Pillar Axiom in its virtual environment. Recently, Chukchansi began expanding its resort and with Pillar’s help, quickly realized the benefits of virtualizing its data centers.

“With such a large gaming facility at Chukchansi comes a large volume of data crossing our storage systems daily, and virtualization was the only way to effectively increase efficiency in our data centers,” said Dennis Peterson, director of information technology for Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino. “Pairing the Pillar Axiom with our virtual servers allows us to project a decrease in costs associated with power and cooling, and lower the number of required storage systems, all while increasing our overall storage capacity and utilization. Additionally, we expect the Axiom will help us reduce our IT CAPEX and OPEX costs, while providing exceptional levels of performance and reliability in our data center.”

“The virtualization of servers is affecting organizations' storage environments, their policies for provisioning capacity, and their storage management practices. When deployed incorrectly, companies' storage environments can suffer a number of 'unintended consequences' that quickly minimize or overwhelm the original value associated with server virtualization," said Richard Villars, Vice President of Storage Systems research at IDC. "Solutions like Pillar's Axiom that provide flexible, rapid, and efficient allocation of tiered storage while enabling nondisruptive application movement will play a key role in helping companies make better use of their virtualized IT environments."
