Bundle supercharges virtual environments http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/04/19/tms_datacore/print.html
TMS says that “when provisioning a virtual machine disk format (VMDK) on a LUN presented to the SANsymphony-V cluster, the virtual guest can utilise internal paging mechanisms with sub-millisecond response times,” to the flash while still using the existing disk drive storage…
“By organising disks with different performance levels into separate tiers and using RamSan appliances as the fastest tier with SAS or SATA drives on the lower tiers, customers benefit from the optimised throughput delivered by SANsymphony-V’s automatic storage tiering technology. [It] dynamically adapts to the …. application workloads to deliver unparalleled performance for physical and virtual environments.”
TMS president Dan Scheel said: “Rather than go with a rip-and-replace upgrade … the TMS/DataCore bundle will provide better utilisation of existing storage infrastructure while … improving the efficiency, performance, provisioning, data protection, availability and management of that infrastructure.”
Hardware support is available from TMS with software support being supplied by DataCore.
