Virsto launches new storage virtualisation software

VM-optimised snapshots and clones to reduce space consumption

By CBR Staff Writer

Virsto Software has unveiled a new storage virtualisation software Virsto One, designed to increase the agility of storage in virtual environments and can anticipate the evolving demands, barriers and opportunities native to server virtualisation.

According to Virsto, the Hypervisor-based storage offering, initially supporting Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, is architected to be storage- and hypervisor-agnostic and enable users to virtualise storage-intensive workloads, maximise consolidation of server and storage hardware, reduce storage management complexity and overall storage costs.

The new software reduces the complexity of storage for virtual servers and delivers benefits by cutting VM image space consumption by up to 90% through thin provisioned, VM-optimised snapshots and clones; simplifying storage management; and increasing storage performance by providing VM-optimised flow control, the company claims.

Mark Davis, CEO of Virsto Software, said: “As deployments of server virtualisation mature, storage problems unique to virtual servers are impacting data centers of all sizes – whether they are internal IT organisations or cloud service providers.”
