Abstract: 

Virtualization and converged networks are disruptive technologies changing how data centers are architected, managed, and secured. Virtual workloads are dynamic requiring dynamic storage access across any network. This makes current storage security models inadequate since traditional SAN security advantages are lost. This new environment demands an improved virtualization-aware host-centric solution to storage security – the Host based Storage Security architecture. In this discussion, IBM and Emulex will present a real world proof-of-concept of an HbSS solution.
