PernixData Announces Support for VMware vSphere 5.5
PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash
PernixData and company’s flagship product, PernixData FVP, virtualizes server side flash to enable scale-out storage performance that is independent of capacity. No changes are required to VMs, servers or primary storage, ensuring maximum performance of all virtualized applications in a seamless, scalable and cost- effective manner.
PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced support for VMware vSphere 5.5 and vSphere Web Client in the newest release of the company’s FVP software. With these latest developments, PernixData customers have complete confidence that their Flash Hypervisor software can be transparently deployed in all modern vSphere environments, using the standard vSphere management tools and procedures to which they are accustomed.
PernixData has a rich pedigree in virtualization, resulting in a robust product that is more tightly integrated with VMware vSphere than other third party software solutions, said Bala Narasimhan, director of product management at PernixData. This not only differentiates us from an ease of integration and operations standpoint, but it ensures that FVP delivers the best performance for all virtualized applications at the lowest possible cost.
PernixData’s extensive knowledge of VMware and commitment to customers using vSphere is evident in the following unique FVP features:
- Robust vSphere support. FVP supports all versions of VMware 5.1.x and greater. As customers upgrade their VMware virtual infrastructure, they can be assured that the PernixData FVP solution will continue to eliminate storage bottlenecks for optimal application performance.
- Seamless management via vSphere Web Client. All FVP operations are managed seamlessly from within vSphere, such as configuring flash clusters and monitoring application and storage performance. With support for vSphere web client, these tasks are handled using any web browser – no separate client software is required. With FVP, the user experience is identical to that experienced natively with vSphere.
- Seamless deployment: PernixData FVP software is deployed inside the vSphere hypervisor in under 20 minutes, with no changes (or reboots) required to VMs, servers or primary storage.
- Clustered platform compatible with all VMware operations: PernixData FVP uses patent-pending Flash Cluster™ technology to enable any host to remotely access the flash device(s) on any other host in the cluster. This technology enables PernixData FVP to seamlessly support all VMware operations and products, such as vMotion, DRS, HA, Snapshot, VDP, Site Recovery Manager™, Horizon View™ and vCloud Director®.
Most plugins are still not available as a web plugin. Adding this PernixData functionality to the vSphere Web client is a major advantage. Face it, that why we do not switch from the fat client to the web client
