SanDisk Corporation and Nexenta to Deliver the Open Software-Defined Storage All Flash Array in the Market
Sep 2 15
SanDisk Corporation and Nexenta announced that NexentaStor has been integrated with SanDisk’s all-flash InfiniFlash IF100 system. This all-flash joint solution provides data center customers with a pre-tested, full-featured, cost-effective, high-performance system for addressing today’s increasing Big Data challenges. Capable of scaling from 64 Terabyte (TB) to two Petabyte (PB) configurations, this unique software and hardware solution supports a broad range of deployment scenarios and workloads including, virtualization, Big Data analytics, data warehousing, and dynamic modeling. Built on ZFS, this resilient scale-up, unified block (FC and iSCSI) and file (NFS and SMB) storage solution provides enterprise customers with peace of mind and the assurance needed around functionality and performance. Key differentiators of this joint solution include NexentaStor's inline data reduction and high performance dual parity raid capabilities as well as the InfiniFlash IF100’s extra low space, power and cooling requirements, resulting in TCO. The coupling of NexentaStor software and SanDisk’s InfiniFlash systems delivers the lowest cost solutions for high performance (ultra low, consistent, sub-millisecond response times and more than 8 Million flash IOPS in a rack) mature unified block and file services to cloud service providers and enterprise customers. These solutions literally break new ground and make all flash storage economically practical for a wide range of use cases, from high performance databases, to virtualized environments, big data lakes and extra dense active archive repositories. The integrated system monitoring and event management capabilities of the new solution, eases system management which ensures a better customer experience. NexentaStor’s ability to support block and file services allows customers to address use cases such as: VMware vCloud Air, OpenStack and CloudStack backend storage, generic NAS file services and Home Directory storage, etc. Tested for use with both Dell PowerEdge R730 and Supermicro SuperServer SYS-6028U-TR4+, the all-flash architecture will be available through select channel partners. List price for the solution including, perpetual software licenses, controllers, InfiniFlash, 3 year support and installation starting as low as $1.5/Raw GB based on configuration and capacity requirements.
SanDisk Corporation Unveils FlashSoft® Software for VMware vSphere®
Aug 31 15
SanDisk Corporation announced FlashSoft® software for VMware vSphere® 6 as a virtual data service through integration with VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering (VAIO). This version of FlashSoft software represents a significant advance in terms of platform integration, usability and performance, increasing customer peace of mind and confidence in host-level storage acceleration. The new VAIO-integrated FlashSoft software will provide write-back caching support for all VMware datastores including VMware Virtual Machine File System (VMFS), Network File System (NFS), VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes™ and VMware Virtual SAN™. The benefits of this new version of FlashSoft for VMware vSphere will include: Usability & Management: As a data service integrated through VMware Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM), the cache will be automatically deployed, managed and maintained cluster-wide through VMware vCenter™ storage policies; Customer Confidence: As a supported solution of both VMware vSphere Storage Policy Based Management and VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering, customers and OEM partners will be able to adopt FlashSoft or other third-party virtual data services with the assurance of compatibility and supportability; Increased Performance: The VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering framework reduces storage stack latency, delivering data to the solid-state caching filter in one microsecond.
