Dell ObjectScale Now Available on VMware vSAN Data Persistence Platform

We are excited to announce Dell Technologies ObjectScale is now available on the VMware vSAN Data Persistence platform. This strategic partnership and co-engineering effort bring Dell’s ObjectScale, software-defined object storage into VMware Cloud Foundation with VMware Tanzu through the integration with the vSAN Data Persistence platform. VMware is committed to supporting modern apps on Kubernetes and partnering with some of the top-ranked companies in the areas of object storage and modern database. We are thrilled to have Dell ObjectScale into our ecosystem of partners for the vSAN Data Persistence platform.

What is VMware vSAN Data Persistence Platform?

The VMware vSAN Data Persistence platform provides a management framework for VMware partners that offer modern stateful services, including object storage, to integrate with the underlying virtual infrastructure, allowing enterprises to run stateful services with high-velocity scaling, simplified IT operations, and optimized TCO.

Companies can deploy a stateful service alongside traditional applications on a regular vSAN cluster with vSAN-SNA (vSAN Support for Shared Nothing Architecture) policy or deploy it on a dedicated vSAN cluster with vSAN Direct Configuration, a technology enabling direct access to the underlying direct-attached hardware which can be optimized for the application needs. Both options benefit from optimal storage efficiency for stateful services by leveraging service-level replication and unified management of services in VMware vCenter.

Available VMware modern stateful services solution partners for vSAN Data Persistence platform include Cloudian Hyperstore, MinIO Object Storage and now Dell ObjectScale.
