Designing Highly Scalable Storage for Dense Virtual Machine Environments
Typically, highly scalable virtual machine architectures are limited to Fibre Channel (FC) storage networks and systems – but this configuration can be expensive to scale, both in size and virtual machine density. NFS-based storage networks can deliver more cost-effective scalability and connectivity, but do they offer the VM density and performance of the FC storage system?
Storage Switzerland put Hitachi NAS Platform 4100 (HNAS 4100) to the test with our Virtual Storage Platform G1000 in a real-world enterprise environment.
“Based on these results, HNAS should certainly be on the short list of any enterprise looking to increase the density of their virtual environment and reduce or eliminate their storage silos.”
