VMware’s 64-node All-Flash VSAN demo at PEX

Another productive VMware Partner Exchange day for our partners and we had another great turnout at the Software-Defined Storage (SDS) Pavilion, where we demoed VDI boot storm on VMware’s 64-node All-Flash VSAN and we continue to have multiple ecosystem partners showcasing their joint solutions with Virtual SAN and Virtual Volumes.

If you missed it, on Monday Feb 2nd VMware launched VMware Virtual SAN 6the best storage platform for virtual machines, including business critical applications. Radically simple, VMware Virtual SAN 6 introduces 2x more scalability (yes 64 nodes!) and up to 4.5x greater performance (that’s 90k IOPs per host!) while adding several new enterprise-class data services capabilities.

SanDisk also showcases All-Flash VMware Virtual SAN 6 Architecture at the SDS Pavilion. The new architecture delivers Two Million Transactions per Minute (TPM) based on initial performance testing with SanDisk Lightning Gen. II SAS SSDs and CloudSpeed SATA SSDs – click here for more.
