Learn how Virtual SAN and vSphere can provide a complete, natively integrated platform consisting of compute, network, and storage resources that are easily isolated from the rest of the infrastructure.
This solution guide describes the deployment of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes on EMC® VMAX3™ to solve backup and recovery challenges for virtualized databases and deploying vSphere Virtual Volumes for OLTP applications using Oracle Database 12c.
Virtual SAN Ready Nodes Hypervisor-converged Storage Systems Simplify Enterprise Scale-out Deployment
This document discusses an implementation of VMware Virtual SAN that supports the storage requirements of a VMware Horizon Virtual Desktop (VDI) environment. Although VDI was used to benchmark the performance of this Virtual SAN implementation, any application supported by ESXi 5.5 can be used.
Latest from Micron on Virtual SAN solution stories and reference architectures.
This reference architecture uses VMware Horizon 6 with View hosted on the All-Flash Cisco Unified Computing System with VMware Virtual SAN.
VMware Virtual SAN 6.0 introduced an all-flash architecture that uses flash devices for both caching and persistent storage. This provides customers with choice of either a hybrid or an all-flash architecture for appropriate workload requirements. For VDI, an all-flash architecture provides a more scalable solution – higher VM density per server along with better application performance & response times – with ever reducing flash storage costs.
This reference architecture validates Virtual SAN’s ability to support industry-standard TPC-C like workloads in an Oracle RAC environment. Oracle RAC on Virtual SAN ensures a desired level of storage performance for mission-critical OLTP workload while providing high availability (HA) and DR solution.
