VMware is expanding the platform’s SDS capabilities to incorporate and support third party software-based data services such as caching and replication.

With our FlashSoft software, we take advantage of these capabilities to optimize storage I/O performance, while running as a data service that is deployed and managed by vSphere storage policies. It’s real-world software-defined storage that delivers:

  • Optimal performance benefits from host-based flash
  • Integration into vSphere through VMware’s Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM)
  • An all-software solution that runs on your current server and storage infrastructure
