Virsto™ Software, an innovative provider of VM-centric storage hypervisor software, today reached a significant milestone in the company’s product roadmap and vision by extending support to VMware vSphere. With today’s beta release announcement of Virsto for VDI, vSphere Edition, Virsto becomes the industry’s first multi-hypervisor solution to address the storage challenges specific to virtualized environments.



Just as the hypervisor did for servers, Virsto is delivering new levels of efficiency, affordability and agility for storage in virtualized environments. Traditionally, provisioning storage in virtualized environments required a choice between production-level performance and efficient storage capacity consumption. With its hypervisor-agnostic, software-based approach to storage virtualization, only Virsto combines performance and efficiency to fundamentally transform the economics of storage for virtual machines (VMs).
