Scaling your VMware storage should not require huge investments or data migrations. With SolidFire’s scale-out architecture, you can easily and nondisruptively achieve linear scale of both capacity and performance without downtime or performance impact.
Also, feel confident your storage platform can deliver all the performance you require while reducing the impact hardware failures can cause for virtualized applications. The SolidFire shared-nothing architecture quickly heals itself to restore full redundancy and protect against future failures. Rebuilds take minutes, compared to hours or days for traditional storage platforms.
See how scale-out storage can improve your growth planning process while delivering the uptime your VMs require.
Maintaining VMware performance for a range of individual workloads is virtually impossible using traditional storage. Noisy neighbor applications monopolize the storage resources necessary for other applications. Rather than trying to overcome the problem by throttling traffic, solve the problem at the storage layer.
SolidFire guarantees that storage performance will always meet a minimum level expected for application performance. Guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) sets the standard for delivering an exact level of performance and bandwidth across multiple workloads, allowing you to set minimum, maximum, and burst thresholds as a way to ensure you deliver the storage performance every application requires.
Schedule a demo to see for yourself how SolidFire QoS ensures your applications will always receive the minimum performance required to meet your SLAs.
Provisioning and managing hundreds or thousands of VMs across an organization is an operational nightmare. The VMware software-defined data center model is designed to help by providing a way to automate many of the management tasks required to maintain an efficient VM environment. SolidFire advances those capabilities with policy-based provisioning that greatly simplifies management.
The SolidFire platform is designed with a full-featured interface that integrates seamlessly into VAAI, VASA, VVol, and vRealize — the tools you already use to automate your VMware infrastructure. In fact, when quantifying the value of SolidFire, the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) determined that 93% of typical performance management tasks can be eliminated, and that operating expenses can be cut by 67%.

The storage needed for virtual servers is becoming increasingly complex, requiring dynamic resources and a high-performance infrastructure. Traditional storage does not supply the scale, flexibility, and agility necessary to deliver infrastructure via the software-defined data center. As a result, organizations can’t deliver infrastructure as quickly or easily as external IaaS providers, which drives users to take corporate data offsite.
The more agile SolidFire scale-out storage platform provides the foundation for the next generation data center, allowing the flexibility to deliver infrastructure the way users want to consume it. Grow the storage platform without downtime. Provision storage capacity and performance independently. And automate storage features with ease.
Virtual desktop deployment is growing rapidly as organizations look to reduce cost of managing traditional desktop environments. SolidFire’s guaranteed QoS controls ensure predictable desktop performance that meets the varying needs of diverse users — from call centers, to finance, or even shipping. By provisioning storage capacity and performance independently, your organization can eliminate the dip in performance that boot storms cause at many points throughout a global operation.
Maximize your virtual desktop ROI by improving the flexibility and agility of your storage infrastructure, and deliver exactly the performance your desktop users require, complying with the per-desktop cost in your budget.
The rate of application deployment is exploding, creating massive new virtualization challenges. Delivering clones of the application server, database server, or web servers is only part of the process. In addition, you create nightly clones as you traverse the development effort. As you progress through the development/test/production cycle, performance needs continue to grow as well. But migrating your virtual machines across storage targets to increase performance is another barrier to releasing new applications.
With SolidFire, the need to migrate the virtual machine to increase performance is no longer a challenge. As you move applications into testing, which requires higher levels of traffic to test the scale of your application, simply increase SolidFire’s QoS control settings. You can immediately meet the higher storage performance required to push your test environment and sustain the production application — all without interrupting any other development projects.
