For any business, progress and improvement is a daily goal. For a business to work toward that goal, they need to search for ways to not only improve their storage infrastructure and services, but at the same time, increase capacity, simplify operations, and ensure continuous uptime. In the IT industry, keeping up with the dynamic state of technology is integral to any organization’s success.

For those running into performance and capacity problems with your current cloud storage offerings, VMware Virtual SAN is here.

VMware Virtual SAN is critical to delivering hybrid cloud service offerings in which infrastructure is provided by a building block hyper-converged solution. While there are several workload profiles in the datacenter, workloads have typically been separated into two profile types – file-based and block-based. Though they have possessed a long track record of success in the enterprise space, their track record has been limited in the cloud space.

For vCloud Air Network partners, they require that storage infrastructure not only be reliable and scalable, but also cost-effective. The expectation for consumers is that this cost efficiency will be passed on to them.

When architecting a VMware software-designed storage solution, there are several avenues to go down. The approach you take will depend on the use case and technology deployed. However, the end goal is always the same.

This vCloud Architecture Toolkit for Service Providers document describes a solution for supporting a software-defined storage solution using VMware Virtual SAN.

With the combined resources of the vCloud Air Network Program and Virtual SAN, an organization can achieve business-critical levels of performance and availability for a variety of workloads. All while accelerating the time to deployment, reducing costs, and simplifying operations.
