PernixData's FVP 2.0 accelerates any VM, any host, with any shared storage system

PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, has announced the availability of new PernixData FVP™ features designed for ubiquitous storage acceleration.

With the new version of FVP software, companies can accelerate any virtualised application using server RAM and/or flash, making it ideal for deployment in any server environment.  “These updates will effectively double our potential market in Australia and New Zealand. FVP can now be deployed in a much wider range of situations and adds a whole lot of scope to our local operations,” said Simon Williams, ANZ Manager for PernixData.

FVP can be deployed in conjunction with file, block or direct attached storage, ensuring seamless integration with all existing (and future) SAN, NAS and DAS devices. With these new enhancements, PernixData has firmly established FVP as the premier platform for enterprise-class storage acceleration, making server side software a fundamental part of any virtual infrastructure by cost effectively scaling storage performance independent of capacity.

“PernixData FVP was a perfect solution for delivering consistent and reliable database and web server performance to our eCommerce customers,” said Alain Russel, CEO and co-founder of BlackPepper.”

“It delivers all the low latency benefits of server side flash, without requiring us to spend a fortune on unnecessary hardware. In addition, we offloaded over one billion writes from our EqualLogic SAN in just six weeks, helping us to extend the life of our existing storage environment.”

PernixData FVP software virtualises flash and RAM across servers to create a clustered pool of high-speed resources that accelerate reads and writes to shared storage. By putting storage intelligence into servers, PernixData FVP decouples storage performance from storage capacity for 10x faster virtualised applications, unlimited IOPS (where and when they are needed), and 90 percent lower storage costs.  Unique new FVP features include:

·       Virtualise any high-speed server resource. FVP lets you add RAM, flash or a combination of the two into an FVP cluster, creating an enterprise-wide acceleration tier that is completely fault tolerant. This maximises flexibility while ensuring storage acceleration meets every budget and every server environment. FVP is deployed inside the hypervisor as a kernel module (certified by VMware), enabling RAM and flash to be utilised transparently. No changes are required to the application, and FVP avoids the performance and reliability issues seen by alternative acceleration solutions that are deployed as Virtual Machines (VMs).

·       Optimise any storage device. FVP supports both file (e.g. NFS) and block (e.g. iSCSI, fibre channel, FCoE) protocols, as well as local data stores. This ensures seamless integration into any SAN/NAS/DAS environment. FVP does not replace shared storage, but rather complements it with a new architecture that decouples storage performance from capacity.

·       FVP “metro clustering” for synchronous replication. FVP is the only storage acceleration solution with clustering technology that allows for synchronous replication between hosts for complete fault tolerance. With the latest version of FVP, this capability is taken one step further. IT administrators can software-define which hosts participate in replica groups, enabling synchronous mirroring to take place between the right hosts in a metro cluster environment.


Did you know: 1 in 10 mobile services in Australia use an MVNO, as more consumers are turning away from the big 3 providers?

The Australian mobile landscape is changing, and you can take advantage of it.
