SanDisk has announced FlashSoft program for VMware vSphere 6 as a practical information use by formation with VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering (VAIO).
The new VAIO-integrated FlashSoft program will yield write-back caching support for all VMware datastores including VMware Virtual Machine File System (VMFS), Network File System (NFS), VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes and VMware Virtual SAN.
The VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering will capacitate formation of third-party information services with vSphere, permitting partner technologies to minister to VMware’s software-defined storage capabilities by Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM).
As a pattern partner for caching solutions built on VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering, SanDisk collaborated with VMware in a selection and growth of this new capability to move partner technologies into tighten fixing with vSphere.
“VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering will move third-party information services into a closest probable turn of formation with VMware vSphere,” pronounced Charles Fan, comparison clamp boss and ubiquitous manager, Storage Business Unit, VMware. “As a pattern partner, SanDisk has helped us rise a horizon for not usually incorporating a possess FlashSoft software, though also enabling storage acceleration information services for a whole partner ecosystem. This helped us serve extend a software-defined storage prophesy by singular software-based information services.”
Benefits of a newest chronicle of FlashSoft program for VMware vSphere will include: support for write-back as good as write-through caching; formation by a VMware vSphere APIs for IO Filtering horizon enables harmony with other VMware partner information services, such as replication; opening for practical disks on all forms of datastores can be accelerated, including VMware Virtual Machine File System (VMFS) on SAN, NFS on NAS, VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes on array, DAS and cloud, as good as VMware Virtual SAN; user-world cache formation reduces a risk that a problem with one practical appurtenance could impact others on a same horde server; and storage trade offload reporting.
