SanDisk® Introduces New All-Flash Reference Architectures for VMWare Virtual SAN™ 6

27/08/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash storage solutions, today unveiled three new reference architectures for VMWare Virtual SAN™ 6 utilizing solid state drives (SSD) and Fusion ioMemory™ PCIe application accelerators. When coupled with VMware Virtual SAN 6, SanDisk’s PCIe and SSD-based solutions allow customers to deploy business critical applications, databases, virtual desktops and other IT workloads with less effort, while gaining exceptional performance on VMware’s hyper-converged and cost-effective VMware Virtual SAN software-defined storage infrastructure.

“SanDisk is addressing the challenges of latency and cost efficiency in the data center with our all-flash VMware Virtual SAN reference architectures, which allow customers to expand the workloads they can run on all-flash and hybrid-flash storage at significantly lower costs,” said John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions, SanDisk. “These new solutions are prime examples of how SanDisk continues to collaborate with VMware. We look forward to working with our mutual partners to help customers experience the significant benefits of the flash-transformed, software-defined data center.”

By using SanDisk flash-based offerings with VMware solutions, customers are able to consolidate IT footprint, while increasing application quality of service (QoS), deriving huge benefits from server virtualization and virtual desktops. For example, SanDisk customers have already been able to: increase support for concurrent users by 3X2; increase virtual desktop density by 4X3; reduce power and cooling by 16X1; and, achieve 40X4 faster report generation. Now with software-defined storage, according to Gartner, by 2017 one-third of midmarket organizations will deploy VMware Virtual SAN for at least 30 percent of their total storage capacity5. Businesses cannot afford for mission-critical applications to be sluggish. These VMware validated reference architectures for business critical applications, databases and desktop virtualization will allow customers to deploy with confidence, while lowering storage TCO by up to 50 percent6.
