BOULDER, Colo., June 25, 2014
SolidFire, the leader in all-flash storage systems built for the Next Generation Data Center, today announced interoperability with VMware vSphere® Storage I/O Control. This will enable IT managers to deliver predictable storage performance to each individual virtual machine within their infrastructure, while enabling applications and end user experiences to be more predictable and easier to manage.
SolidFire’s storage Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities with VMware vSphere Storage I/O Control gives IT managers the ability to designate, manage and deliver predictable virtual machine performance from the host all the way through to the underlying SolidFire storage system. This interoperability can deliver predictable, end-to-end performance for all applications in a shared infrastructure and reduce the need for traditional manual performance management and over-provisioning.
“SolidFire with VMware vSphere Storage I/O Control provides a tunable and predictable storage infrastructure for each virtual machine datastore,” said SolidFire’s Founder and CEO Dave Wright. “VMware managers can oversee provision storage policies within the virtual infrastructure that are then enforced down to each virtual disk in the SolidFire storage system. SolidFire uses VMware vSphere Storage I/O Control to enable VMware’s end-to-end performance control.”
“Controlling the dynamic allocation of resources in a virtualized environment is important,” commented Gaetan Castelein, senior director, product management, Software-Defined Storage, at VMware. “SolidFire, using VMware vSphere Storage I/O Control, can isolate QoS to enable predictable performance for each VM in a shared storage infrastructure.”
SolidFire’s QoS architecture drives increased VM awareness and management granularity between the host and storage system layers of the data center infrastructure:
