SANRAD Announces VMware Support

SANRAD Incorporated, a leading supplier of open enterprise IP SANs, today announced its product portfolio of IP SAN solutions fully supports VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3. SANRAD’s support for VMware enables VMware customers to utilize their existing IP network and storage resources to consolidate storage management and data recovery.

Using the open, scalable architecture of SANRAD’s IP SANs extends VMWare’s consolidation and virtualization benefits to server storage. With SANRAD solutions, any brand or type of storage, including FC SAN resources, can be pooled and managed with a single platform. VMware customers can then divide the virtualized storage pool into unique iSCSI volumes for VMware ESX server datastors.  By combining virtualization with open storage pooling, customers can create different storage tiers, acquire the specific storage capacity and performance they need, and utilize existing storage investments, thereby reducing overall costs and simplifying scalability. 

SANRAD’s unique IP solution increases resource availability with real-time data, path and system redundancy and provides for low cost scalability. It also provides decreased storage costs on a per terabyte (TB) basis as capacity increases. SANRAD’s GDR supports VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3 delivering business continuity and enabling customers to replicate data to a remote site for disaster recovery. All storage services for VMware are delivered and managed from SANRAD’s consolidated IP SAN solution using a single graphical user interface.

“Our enterprise customers require a fully integrated storage solution for VMware. We are pleased we have created a unique solution that delivers a high reliability IP SAN architecture well suited for multiple VMware ESX servers.” said Uli Gal-Oz, CEO of SANRAD. “VMware is the leader in server consolidation and virtualization solutions, and we look forward to working together closely as a VMware Technology Alliance Partner program member to deliver a complementary storage consolidation and virtualization solution.”

SANRAD provides enterprise iSCSI platforms with a broad complement of embedded and simple to manage storage services. Its unique solution offers open storage pooling, virtualization, local and long distance data replication and disaster recovery services at the network layer. This in turn provides customers with greater scalability, interoperability and vendor independence in their storage solutions. SANRAD’s V-Switch is compatible with solutions from Brocade, Engenio, HP, Veritas, IBM, Microsoft and others.
