VMware Virtual SAN with IBM System x3650
VMware Virtual SAN running on IBM System x servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors and technology provides a resilient, scalable x86 hypervisor-converged storage solution optimized for virtual environments, enabling enterprises to simplify storage management while lowering TCO for high-performance, mission-critical workloads.
Architected and designed to make it simpler to manage and operate storage in virtual environments, taking the complexity out of managing your storage.
Hypervisor-converged storage— shared storage through seamless integration with vSphere—optimizes the I/O path to deliver better performance than a virtual appliance or external device.
Drastically reduce storage capital cost by leveraging server components and enable granular scaling of capacity, eliminating large upfront investments and overprovisioning.
