Expand capabilities of existing virtualized infrastructure without expanding budget or data center footprint
The Flash Virtualization System delivers the performance and productivity power of flash acceleration cluster-wide in new or existing storage infrastructures, enabling more applications to be virtualized – even performance-critical applications – and increasing virtual machine density without jeopardizing SLAs or QoS.
Designed to complement, rather than replace, existing storage infrastructure and integrated with VMware vSphere, the Flash Virtualization System seamlessly delivers flash performance and efficiency benefits without compromising existing storage policies or introducing new management tools.
Take existing storage that is inefficient, IO-constrained and limits business capability to execute and grow.
Install Flash Virtualization System: FlashSoft Software on host servers and Flash Server into network.
Achieve higher performance, virtualize more applications, and increase virtual machine (VM) density.
Support increased virtual machine (VM) density on host servers to get greater productivity and utilization from every host server investment. With performance acceleration from the Flash Virtualization System, it may be possible to defer future server purchases, cutting costs of hardware and application software licenses.
Extend the deployable life of existing storage system investments by eliminating storage performance bottlenecks and offloading the I/O burden from storage to the Flash Virtualization System.
Intelligent and dynamic software adjusts to meet changing workload requirements, eliminating manual application performance tuning and delivering the most cost-effective and efficient utilization of high-performance flash storage, and the greatest return on flash investment.
The Flash Virtualization System can maximize the productivity and efficiency of host servers to create a huge savings, allowing your business to do more with less and reduce server and application software licenses costs. Accelerate the capability of your existing storage and evolve from an underutilized, low-performance infrastructure to a fully utilized, VM-dense powerhouse.
Incorporates FlashSoft Software 4, the first VMware Ready certified third-party caching software for vSphere 6. Also offering VMware HCL-certified hardware, the Flash Virtualization System is a validated, qualified vSphere acceleration solution.
Supports VMware Cluster Solutions and integrated with vCenter management tools to operate non-disruptively in existing vSphere environments, and does not violate or conflict with existing HA, backup, recovery, security, compliance, or application policies to maintain ‘business as usual’ while making flash performance available cluster-wide.
Supports existing high-availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) policies and cluster solutions including:
Standard plug-in to vCenter supports management functions directly through vCenter Web GUI. The Flash Virtualization System is managed as a part of vSphere, so there are no new management tools to learn.
The Flash Virtualization System integrates three flash technologies from SanDisk – Fusion ioMemory PCIe application accelerators and SanDisk ION Accelerator software in a flash server, and FlashSoft software installed on host servers - to enable the performance and productivity power of flash acceleration cluster-wide in new or existing vSphere infrastructures
