Do you have a home lab to practice virtualization technologies? Then you’re going to need centralized storage to make the full use of all the available features. The most optimal way to enable this is to use a storage system which can virtualize itself. Several Virtual Storage Appliances (VSA) are available and it can be tricky to decide which is the best to use. Neil Anderson (www.flackbox.com ) has published a list of all the available VSA’s including their system requirements and links to setup guides for each one. There’s also recommendations on which VSA is most suitable for you given your needs.
