Virsto Software Extends Storage Hypervisor Leadership with Release of Virsto for vSphere and Virsto for Virtual Servers, Hyper-V Edition, 2.0

  1. 1. Extending Virtualization in the Enterprise Introducing the Virsto Storage Hypervisor for vSphere Mark DavisJanuary 2012 CEO Virsto
  2. 2. Virsto Software Vision To do for storage, what hypervisor did for serversTechnology VM-centric “Storage Hypervisor” software Value Extending virtualization throughout the enterprise Solutions Virsto for Hyper-V; Virsto for vSphere Product Six production releases since June 2010 launchCustomers Dozens: Test & Dev., Private & Public Clouds, VDI Vitals Founded 2007 Silicon Valley 38 employees Funding Over $25M from top tier venture capitalists 2
  3. 3. Transforming your existing hypervisor into a “Storage Hypervisor” Introducing Virsto for vSphere & Virsto for Virtual Servers 2.0, Hyper-V Edition Virsto extends virtualization throughout the enterprise by reducing storage costs and simplifying management complexity • Achieve both Cost Savings and Management Benefits with Desktop Virtualization • Accelerate Test and Development While Delivering Higher Quality Releases • Deliver Cost-Effective, Agile Private Cloud Storage Infrastructure 3
  4. 4. Transforming your existing hypervisor into a “Storage Hypervisor” Introducing Virsto for vSphere & Virsto for Hyper-V, 2.0Virsto for vSphere New for Virsto for Hyper-V, 2.0• Seamless integration with vCenter & • Seamless Integration with vSphere 4.1 (Virtual Storage Appliance) Microsoft VMM• Virsto RapidSnaps: the industry’s most • Software based tiering: scalable, highest-performance writable support for up to four distinct clones and snapshots tiers• Integrated Rapid Provisioning Wizards for • Virsto Global DR Snapshot: VMware View 4.5 complete Virsto Cluster• Storage self provisioning for server & Snapshot for offsite backup desktop administrators • Integration with Veeam for• 9x VM Performance Improvements, 90% additional backup option in improvement in capacity utilization, 75% Hyper-v environments faster VM provisioning 4
  5. 5. Server Virtualization Changed Everything Proven server benefits driving continued adoption 90 Logical server installed base Physical server installed base 80 70 Majority ofServers (millions) 60 50 workloads 40 virtualized 30 by 2012 20 10 0 96 98 00 02 04 06 08 10 12 Year Source: IDCHigher Efficiency Reduced Cost Increased Agility 4
  6. 6. Virtualization a Key Driver of Storage Growth SAN storage adoption & expenditure accelerating due to virtualization SAN Storage Growth 18% $12 Billion Source: IDC 5
  7. 7. Hidden Storage Costs of Virtualization Storage Architecture: not virtualization ready Degraded Performance VM • Random I/O degrades VM performance • Ease of VM creation increases server workloads VM Storage Capacity Wastage • Over-provisioning to ensure performance VM • Thick VMDK vs. Linked Clones Inefficient Storage Management VM • LUN-based, Not VM-optimized • Compromised snapshots & clones • Slow, complex provisioningVirtualized Servers & VMs Writes to Storage Array Experience “I/O Blender” 6
  8. 8. Defining the Virsto Storage Hypervisor WHAT IT IS WHAT IT DOESNew Virtual Storage Approach Boosts Performance up to 10x Virtual Machine-centric Unique I/O system optimized for VM clouds 100% software Speeds installed legacy storage Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) Accelerates SSDNew Virtual Storage Object Up to 90% Better Utilization Always high performance (QoS) Thin provisioning without compromises Always thin provisioned Unlimited space efficient snaps & clones Massively scalable snapshots & clones 2-3x greater server VM density 2-3x storage efficiencyNew Storage Economics Efficient Storage Management Multi-hypervisor Manage VMs, not LUNs Any heterogeneous block-level storage Seamlessly integrated in VM workflow Commodity hardware, high end features VM admin provisions storage Support for Cloud-scale deployments Up to 10,000x faster provisioning 7
  9. 9. The Emergence of the Storage Hypervisor “A storage hypervisor [lets] the server […] hypervisor run an increasingly larger portion of the storage services.” “It makes sense—both operational and financial—to complete the abstraction; to separate the storage functionality from the physical storage system by creating a storage hypervisor.” “This may even have bigger potential than the virtual server revolution.” “Only once it is possible to easily add commodity hardware to storage pools, which are then controlled by virtualization and cloud automation software and subject to user self-provisioning, will we have achieved true virtualization.”
  10. 10. Key Trends in Virtualization & Storage  Datacenter convergence reinvents datacenter roles  The emergence of SSD (and how to best leverage it)  The hypervisor will extend to effectively manage enterprise storage hardware  Multi-hypervisor becomes the industry standard  New storage architectures designed for cloud-scale computing and commodity economics will emerge  Increasing adoption of Private, Hybrid & Public Cloud initiativesThe Storage Hypervisor plays a pivotal role in each of these trends 10
