The Fusion-powered NexGen n5 Storage System is a mid-market solution that employs ioMemory’s performance while implementing virtual machine high availability with VMware HA, VMware FT, Microsoft Hyper-V Quick Migration, and Live Migration.
Shared storage provider NexGen Storage has teamed up with storage memory platform provider Fusion-io to provide what the companies are calling “the industry’s first Fusion-powered, midrange storage area network designed for business critical virtualization.”
With the integration of the Fusion ioDrive into the NexGen storage area network (SAN), SMBs can extend low latency Fusion-io performance and implement virtual machine high availability for any application connected to the SAN.
The NexGen n5 Storage System enables SMBs to share the performance of Fusion-io with all servers connected to the SAN while implementing virtual machine high availability with VMware HA, VMware FT, Microsoft Hyper-V Quick Migration, and Live Migration. Further, by combining Fusion ioMemory with NexGen’s Phased Data Reduction, the NexGen system delivers higher virtual machine storage density.
“NexGen Storage has architected a unique mid-market SAN solution that takes advantage of ioMemory’s performance potential,” explains Will Hall, Fusion-io’s vice president of OEM sales. “By eliminating the performance bottlenecks of solid-state drives with ioMemory, NexGen delivers outstanding SAN performance control and efficiency. Our collaboration with NexGen enables customers to not only meet their business objectives, but also unlock the capabilities of their data center to discover new possibilities.”
The collaboration between NexGen and Fusion-io includes an OEM agreement that integrates Fusion-io technology in every NexGen n5 Storage System. NexGen Storage and Fusion-io will also engage in joint sales and marketing activities to bring the power of the NexGen Fusion-powered SAN solution to customers. Customers will be able to extend virtualization to business critical applications, as well as to achieve very high virtual machine storage density.
“We are excited to collaborate with Fusion-io to bring the market-leading technology that powers dynamic organizations, ranging from the largest Web properties to many leading financial organizations, to more mainstream data centers,” says NexGen Storage CEO John Spiers. “Fusion’s technology platform enables SMBs to reap tremendous utilization, low latency performance, and efficiency advantages within the server environment.”
