Dot Hill has announced enhanced security and performance in VMware Virtual server systems
Dot Hill Systems Corp., one of the leading providers of Storage area networks (SAN) solutions, has integrated VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) support and Site Recovery Manager (SRM) into the latest version of its firmware for AssuredSAN 3000 storage systems. This integration will increase the performance and security of the VMware virtual server systems.
The company has reported that SRM will help to protect data and elevate data security within VMware virtual server environments. SRM with array-based replication will help in maintaining the accurate reproduction of virtual machines on different sites.
According to Dot Hill Systems, three distinct abilities have been incorporated in the VAAI i.e. block zeroing, full copy and hardware assisted locking. The AssuredSAN 3000 system will not only work favorably with these functions by introducing the new firmware but also provide speed to novel virtual machines. vMotion functions can be stored easily as the CPU usage will be decreased by introduction of new features.
"Customers using VMware virtualization require high performance and high availability network storage solutions. Dot Hill's AssuredSAN 3000 series provides a unique combination of high speed and five 9's of availability," said Jim Jonez, senior director of marketing, Dot Hill. "The Dot Hill AssuredSAN 3000 array with VAAI and SRM support improves storage efficiency with added security for VMware users."
The company has announced that the new firmware supporting VAAI and SRM will be available by one month. Present users of Dot Hill AssuredSAN 3000 can freely upgrade the firmware while accessing through Dot Hill support.
