AIC (www.aicpc.com) will demonstrate its new all-flash VMware Virtual SAN Ready Node Solution at VMworld 2016 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas beginning Aug. 28. The new line of all-flash array hardware is built with memory and solid-state disks (SSDs) from Micron along with SAS host bus adapters from ATTO.
IC’s new solution takes advantage of solid-state disks. The Micron SSDs are fully optimized for VMware Virtual SAN. Organizations looking to maximize their workload performance can either integrate the solution into their existing VMware cluster or to build a new cluster using a minimum of three nodes.
The solution from AIC comes in two versions, both supporting 12 processor cores. The SDS-V110 is available with 64 GB and 128 GB RAM options, while the SDS-V224 comes in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB RAM options. End users get 10 hot-swap drive bays in the SDS-V110 and 24 bays in the SDS-V224. Raw storage ranges from 720 GB to 5.76 TB in the SDS-V100 and climbs to 2.64 TB to 21.12 TB in the SDS-V224.
