Storage for VMware Environments
Optimized performance, data management and cost efficiency
StorSimple is the only cloud-integrated storage offering certified by both Microsoft and VMware. It delivers automatically tiered primary storage, cloud archival, cloud data protection and cloud disaster recovery in one solution.
As organizations deploy VMware for next-generation data centers as the foundation for private clouds, many quickly realize the manageability, flexibility, and cost benefits from a server and application perspective.
In contrast, traditional storage infrastructure is expensive and inflexible when examined through the lens of end-to-end data lifecycle management.
Virtualization enables rapid protection, maximum efficiency, and portability of application and server infrastructure; yet a legacy storage architecture prohibits organizations from fully realizing that potential. Additionally, the cost of legacy storage infrastructure impedes many companies from fully deploying virtualization.
Benefits for VMware Environments
The StorSimple solution is designed to provide primary storage performance with cloud elasticity and economics for VMware virtualization deployments. Integrated primary storage deduplication with SSDs and automated tiering ensure that virtual machines receive the storage performance they need, and an on-ramp to the cloud enables organizations to take advantage of cloud elasticity and economics for both primary and backup storage.
StorSimple can be used with both vRanger and Veeam.
VMware customers that deploy StorSimple benefit from:
Up to 80% Reduced VMware Storage Costs
Integrating multiple storage devices into one enterprise cloud-integrated storage solution slashes infrastructure costs, energy consumption and rack space requirements. Storage capacity silos are replaced by one elastic storage pool with integrated deduplication for storage efficiency and lower cost, simplified data protection using efficient local snapshots and cloud backup capabilities, and disaster recovery using the cloud and portable backups.
Reduced VMware Management Costs
Separate primary storage, archival, backup/restore and disaster recovery hardware means multiple separate management consoles. One integrated console makes it dramatically easier to manage the entire storage infrastructure, reducing overall management costs and increasing IT agility.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) You Need at the Cost You Want
StorSimple local and cloud snapshot technology enables instant and frequent backups of virtual machine datastores, allowing you to deliver the RPO you want at the price you want for your virtualized infrastructure. StorSimple snapshot technology delivers instant restore in seconds not hours. In the case of a disaster, Cloud Snapshots and Cloud Clones enable simple off-site disaster recovery.
Virtual Machine and Application Portability for Migrations and Cloud Bursting
StorSimple Cloud Snapshots and Cloud Clones enable fast off-site backups of your VMware environment using the cloud, which are globally accessible from any location where a StorSimple solution is deployed. This simplifies the migration of virtual machine datastores from one location to another, providing the foundation for cloud-bursting applications leveraging multiple locations.
Reduced Cost and Simplified Deployment of Backup and Disaster Recovery
StorSimple cloud-integrated storage provides cloud elasticity and economics with primary storage performance, and is the perfect complement to your deployment of VMware data protection and disaster recovery solutions like VMware Data Recovery, Veeam Backup and Replication, and VizionCore vRanger. StorSimple allows backup copies to leverage the cloud, allowing you to realize the lowest cost and greatest degree of portability and protection.
