Pavilion - Ready for VMware vSphere 7

Pavilion Data Systems announced VMware vSphere 7 certification and presence on VMware's Compatibility Guide. Pavilion is one of the first storage array vendors to support VMware vSphere 7 using RDMA-over-Converged Ethernet (RoCE v2).

With Pavilion's Hyperparallel Flash Array certification with VMware vSphere 7.0 using newly introduced industry-standard NVMe-over Fabrics, applications can take advantage of the significant performance boost while increasing storage density for VMs and containers compared to previous generations using NFS as referenced in a company blog.

Backward compatibility for NFS and iSCSI lets customers run multiple protocols simultaneously in Pavilion's Hyperparallel Flash Array maximizing storage performance and density for VMs and persistent containers. With multi-protocol support, organizations can easily consolidate VMs, migrate to containers and modernize their hybrid clouds.

"vSphere 7 is one of the most significant vSphere releases in a decade," said Sudhanshu Jain, director of product management, Cloud Platform, VMware. "We are pleased to work with Pavilion on NVMe-oF to support its Hyperparallel Flash Array for the benefit of our mutual customers."

"Certification for vSphere 7 extends our leadership from Webscale and HPC customers directly into Large Enterprises where VMware is a significant operating environment," said Gurpreet Singh, Pavilion CEO. "Our proof of hyperparallel for the intersection of big and fast data is ideally suited to the hybrid cloud and modern applications and customer profiles VMware is targeting."
