The kid is not VSAN: EMC buffs up ScaleIO for high-end types

EMC has buffed up its ScaleIO virtual SAN software. Hopkinton positions ScaleIO as virtual SAN software for higher-end data centres than subsidiary VMware’s VSAN virtual SAN software, and also for customers using Hyper-V server virtualisation, which VSAN does not support. ScaleIO scales out to more nodes than VSAN, we’re told …

EMC VxRack thrown on the review rack

Storage Review has tested an all-flash EMC VxRack config and found it flies, beating X-IO's ISE-860 and, unsurprisingly, a hybrid Nutanix rig. EMC announced its VxRack scale-out storage system in May 2015, with the smaller VSAN-based VxRail coming out yesterday. The Storage Review test used a 4-node VxRack chassis with dual …

Flocker is container data management tool that aims to orchestrate containers so that several can be assembled into something that looks, feels and behaves pretty much like an application. Flocker also allows …

How to storm the virtual heights of SAN

Platoons are easy to manage, nimble and fast-moving, but regiments need a host of logistics operations to bring them to the battle point. Virtual SANs (Storage Area Networks) comprised of a few nodes are simpler to buy and operate than a full-scale SAN with its network connections, HBAs, thousands of LUNs (logical unit numbers …

Loved-up 'frictionless' EMC bods slide ScaleIO into VMware kernel

EMC is going to extend its ScaleIO serverSAN product to function as a VMware kernel module to speed it up, thereby "twinning" it with VSAN in terms of VMware and ESXi integration. There is a new spirit of co-opetition and even co-operation inside the EMC federation these days after its CEO, Joe Tucci, openly admitted there had …

Tech kingpins: Your kit would be tastier with a spot of open source

Storagebod As storage infrastructure companies try to move to a more software oriented world, they are having to try different things to try to grab our business. In today's world, tin is not the differentiator and they need to compete head-on with open source – which might mean they have to take a more open-source type approach. Of …

EMC's Project Nile: Elastic Cloud Storage isn't stretchy enough to fit me

Storagebod EMC have finally turned Project Nile into a product and given it the wonderful name of “Elastic Cloud Storage”; there is much to like about it. But before I tell you about those, I’ll point out one thing. For a product called “Elastic Cloud Storage” it’s not very elastic. At least, not when compared to current public cloud …

EMC aims Elastic Cloud Storage band at Amazon, Google

EMC World EMC is in Vegas to gamble, and had all of its software-defined storage bets on show at its EMC World storagefest – everything from Project Nile and ViPR 2.0 to its massively scale-out ScaleIO server SAN. First up is its Amazon-attacking Project Nile, embodied as an Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) appliance. It was previewed in …

Another day, another VDI appliance: ScaleIO intros Nytro-driven kit

VDI is becoming a vendor obsession. Just days after Fusion-io's ioVDI product we have an another VDI appliance using EMC's ScaleIO technology with LSI flash, Supermicro servers and Mellanox networking which they claim can boot 1,000 virtual desktops in 12 minutes at a price per desktop of an entry-level business PC. EMC bought …

Don't let the SAN go down on me: Is the storage array on its way OUT?

Storagebod With EMC saying it plans to put VMAX into the "capacity tier"* and suggesting that performance cannot be met by the traditional SAN, are we finally beginning to look at the death of the storage array? The storage array as a shared monolithic device came about almost directly as the result of distributed computing; the …

Understanding what's going on in storage arrays is like doing MAGIC

Storagebod As the announcements and acquisitions which fall into the realms of Software Defined Storage – or "storage", as I like to call it – continue to come, one starts to ponder how this is all going to work in the real world. I think it is extremely important to remember that you are going to need hardware to run this software on. …

Yes, we ARE gobbling flashy bit-bucket biz ScaleIO, beams EMC

EMC has confirmed that it is buying Israeli virtual storage upstart ScaleIO, following its acquisitive interest in the company becoming known in late June. To recap, ScaleIO's ECS (Elastic Converged Storage) software turns a server's direct-attached storage (DAS) into a shared SAN (storage area network). ECS is, in effect a …

EMC snaps up Israeli soft-storage startup

Another Iraeli storage startup, ScaleIO by name, has reportedly been scooped up by EMC for an estimated $200 - $300 million. ScaleIO makes Elastic Converged Storage, ECS virtual SAN software. A VSAN turns direct-attached storage on one or more connected servers into a shared block-level access storage resource pool, a virtual …

ScaleIO uncloaks, offers glimpses of mighty SANitisation plans

Startup ScaleIO has come out of stealth-mode operation. Its ECS virtual storage appliance (VSA) is on major steroids, making it a serious alternative to existing storage array network (SAN) arrays rather than a toy. ScaleIO turns application servers' local storage into an on-demand low-cost SAN. This puts it in the same …

ScaleIO virtual SAN firms begins to surface, mostly still concealed

A pair of NetApp/Topio bright young things with a dash of Storwize and XtremeIO have their very own virtual SAN startup, ScaleIO. The idea - as with HP LeftHand's Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) and similar offerings - is to use a server's own disks, typically directly-attached, and group them with other servers' disks to form …
