Violin adds data management capabilities for its all-flash memory arrays

The company has collaborated with Symantec to build flash-optimised software

By CBR Staff Writer

Flash memory arrays provider Violin Memory has added a new suite of data management capabilities to its all-flash memory arrays, offering enterprises a tier 1 storage application.

The company has collaborated with Symantec to build flash-optimised software including snapshots, cloning, deduplication, replication and thin provisioning into Violin’s product portfolio.

Violin Memory Products vice president Narayan Venkat said: "We have been delivering storage at the speed of memory with disk array prices, and now, we’ve partnered with Symantec to build a comprehensive flash-optimised data management suite that extends the benefits of speed and scale to data protection, disaster avoidance and storage efficiency."

Violin’s flash memory arrays with built-in data management capabilities from Symantec allow businesses to improve virtualised infrastructure to 70-80%, the company said.

End users can now put business critical applications on virtual machines without sacrificing IOPS, latency, economics, data protection and reliability.

Symantec Storage and Availability Management Group product management vice president Don Angspatt said: "The opportunity to work with Violin, a leader in flash storage arrays, was exciting, and the effort to optimize our technologies over the last year will provide enterprises a unique solution that will further enable the consolidation and virtualisation of their data centers."
