SanDisk® expands its portfolio of enterprise storage solutions with the new FlashSoft™ software for VMware® vSphere®. Compatible with both Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) configurations, the FlashSoft technology caches frequently accessed, “hot” data, on low-latency solid-state devices installed directly in the server, thereby reducing I/O latency that can slow application performance in virtual server environments.
FlashSoft for VMware vSphere software provides a 2x to 4x increase in application performance** on virtual machines, a 2x to 3x increase in VM density* and the ability to run transparently while supporting all VMware vSphere features. Enabling I/O acceleration directly in the servers themselves, this type of performance boost is well-suited to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments and business-critical applications where concerns over response latency often prevent the migration of “tier-one” applications to virtual environments.
We’re thrilled about offering the new FlashSoft software for VMware vSphere to the enterprise market – stay tuned for more good news from SanDisk as it continues to expand its presence in the enterprise storage arena.
