Qsan F300Q FC-SAS High Availability System is Now VMware Certified

TAIPEI, Taiwan , May 29 /PRNewswire/ — Virtualization is the most efficient way to simplify IT complexity for both hardware and software management and installations. VMware delivers virtualization solutions which meets all essential customer requirements and has more customer-proven cases than other competitors. For better storage virtualization support and integration, Qsan Q series F300Q high availability system is now VMware certified.

With VMware certified, it is much easier to build a virtual infrastructure for a private cloud. VMware hypervisor is the most robust and production proven than others. The VMware ESX 4.0 hypervisor attributes very small disk footprint which is only 70MB for ESXi. It is OS independent with no reliance on general purpose operation systems to reduce the chance of OS failures. VMware optimizes the drivers with hardware vendors to achieve higher IOPS and better efficiency. The memory management has the ability to reclaim unused memory and de-duplicate memory pages which is a great improvement for virtualization environments. Besides virtual machine VMotion, the VMware Storage VMotion enables live migration of virtual machines files from one storage array to another with no visible interruptions. With both VMotion and Storage VMotion, administrators can perform maintenance, live storage migration, and automated load balancing during business hours without downtime. VMware also has host resource management, performance enhancements, flexible resource allocation, and security protection, which are not available in other competitors.

Qsan Q series F300Q high availability system is not only certified by VMware but also able to achieve higher IOPS than VMware can support which is great for virtualization, administrators can install multiple VMware ESX servers in the shared Qsan storage system without performance impact. The VMware ESX servers can access the same data stores to boot and run virtual machines, to utilize more out of the storage investments, and reduce the management effort. Qsan F300Q system is designed on its own invented technology which provides users with dual active controllers, redundant and hot pluggable components, seamless management, multiple nodes, load-balancing, high performance, and advanced snapshot protection. The new F300Q system is designed for critical requirements, such as non-stop service, high reliability, scalability, sustainability, cloud computing, virtualization, and of course, with a reasonable price.
