Solutions for VMware

Overview:

The increasing prevalence of virtualization is affecting businesses of all sizes and generating new storage needs. Supporting large numbers of virtual machines and their valuable datasets in VMware’s virtual infrastructure requires a fully-integrated SAN delivering high performance, availability and agility.

Infortrend’s FC and iSCSI SAN storage systems from the ESVA, EonStor DS and EonStor families, as well as Infortrend's EonNAS systems, are VMware ready. As a Technology Alliance Partner (TAP), we are continuously working with VMware to enhance the benefits our products can deliver to virtualized environments. In a fully virtualized datacenter combining VMware infrastructure and Infortrend storage solutions, users enjoy optimal resource efficiency, application productivity, operational resilience and management simplicity at reduced costs. For virtualized deployments large or small, Infortrend solutions can dynamically satisfy your current and future needs in the most cost-effective way.
