VMware support, through iSCSI
StorPool can be used to provide highly-available shared storage to VMware environments.
StorPool has developed an iSCSI target especially for this purpose. It extends the standard iSCSI protocol, adding high availability (HA), scalability (scale-out) and increased performance through running multiple iSCSI sessions in the cluster.
This provides a faster, more reliable and cost-efficient storage alternative compared to a traditional iSCSI SAN or all-flash array to any VMware powered cloud.
Using StorPool instead of a standard iSCSI SAN for VMware environments has multiple advantages:
- High Availability: StorPool’s iSCSI implementation is HA – the iSCSI target provides automatic fail-over in case of hardware failure, switching to a redundant target and ensuring business continuity.
- Scale-out: add iSCSI connections to scale seamlessly and also increase performance with each new connection.
- Performance: StorPool systems offer unbeatable IOPS and latency metrics even in iSCSI implementations.
- Multi-stack support: Whether you are looking to reduce vendor lock-in or you need a single solution to power multi-cloud environments, StorPool can help you achieve it.
