Intel launched its first Optane-based product for the enterprise last week, the Optane SSD DC P4800X series. Summarizing of the technical details, the P4800X in its first incarnation is a 375GB SSD in an add-in-card form factor. Software defined solutions like VMware vSAN are uniquely qualified to take full advantage of this new technology, as they’re already architected to leverage advancements in hardware. VMware has done just that, offering launch support in both ESXi 6.5 and vSAN 6.5.
Together with Intel, VMware has released a new ebook covering virtualized storage, Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), and vSAN. Hyper‐Converged Infrastructure for Dummies by Michael Haag shows you the ways HCI evolves how compute, storage, and management are delivered and provisioned to help you cut operational and capital costs, increase IT and business agility, and improve application […] The post The Promise of Software‐Defined Storage (SDS) appeared first on VMware Education and…Read More
As the data center continues to evolve, it’s time for a more robust infrastructure that can help organizations meet the needs of modern business. Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is a radically simple, cost-effective solution designed with the future in mind—from performance to cost to scale.
Get More out of HCI with Simple, Scalable vSAN – (3) Part Webinar Series
In this 3-part webinar series, we will show you how VMware vSAN accommodates non-virtualized workloads with iSCSI support, eliminates the need for routers and switches in 2-node ROBO deployments, and how to save on storage costs through server side economics and greater space efficiency. We’ll also describe how a single SPBM framework delivers consistent performance and protection in mixed vSAN and VVOL environments.
