Seanodes, the creator and developer of Shared Internal Storage solutions, today unveiled a new Virtual Machine Edition of its Exanodes software for VMware environments. Exanodes VM Edition 1.0 for VMware is ideal for small to midsized businesses that are transitioning to network storage, and hosted storage services such as cloud computing that need to maximize capacity, reliability and performance at a lower cost than traditional network storage.
Installation, configuration and deployment of Exanodes VM Edition requires no target management, no additional hardware, no need for external SAN storage or fabrics and no specific storage competencies. It provides high performance through improved parallelism and full utilization of hardware at the user’s disposal. Exanodes VM Edition also delivers catastrophic fault tolerance with self-healing capabilities, and takes less then 40 minutes to rebuild a 1TB disk.
Deploying an Exanodes-based storage back end allows companies running VMware for server virtualization to derive the same cost, flexibility, simplicity and other benefits in a fully virtualized computing infrastructure. Like the flagship edition of Seanodes’ Exanodes software, Exanodes VM Edition creates a virtualized storage pool that recovers server-attached storage assets and makes them available as part of a shared, scalable, and resilient storage network and enables companies to maximize the ROI of their current storage technology.
Exanodes VM Edition was recently named a winner of a Best Products and Services Award by Network Products Guide, a world-leading publication on technology solutions. Exanodes VM Edition was praised as an alternative to investment in traditional SANs that are as much as 20 times more expensive, or continually purchasing additional storage capacity.
Exanodes VM Edition is available through solution providers in Seanodes’ network of channel partners.
