Scale-Out Storage In the hypervisor kernel or in a VM?

The paper isn’t new but provides some thoughts around architecture as people roam the trade-show floor at VMworld this year. The paper highlights architectural considerations with implementing a converged, scale-­‐out storage fabric that run across a cluster of nodes. This paper focuses on high availability and resiliency for virtualizing business critical applications. The paper covers running storage services embedded in the hypervisor kernel and as virtual machine in the user space.
