SanDisk Show All-Flash VMware Virtual SAN

SanDisk is showcasing an all-flash VMware Virtual SAN 6 architecture that can perform more than two million transactions per minute (TPM) for database transaction processing and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) applications.

The new Virtual SAN 6, which can be deployed at entry-level as a 4-node cluster that can scale up to a total of 64 nodes, leverages SanDisk Lightning Gen. II 12Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSDs and CloudSpeed SATA SSDs to provide the cache and persistent storage tiers.

“This new all-flash VMware Virtual SAN design from SanDisk provides our mutual customers with increased levels of virtual machine (VM) performance density with scalability and the necessary price/performance SSD attributes,” said Charles Fan, senior vice president and general manager, Storage and Availability Business Unit, VMware.
