VMware Meets the Seagate® 1200 SSD and Virtunet Systems

Boost Performance and Improve Server Utilization With 12Gb/s SAS SSDs and Server Side Caching Software
Challenge: Increase Virtualized Server Speed, Density Increase

The benefits and appeal of server virtualization are becoming increasingly well-known and understood. According to VMware, 2013 marked the crossover point at which virtualized server deployments exceeded physical shipment of servers. As businesses look to the future, it’s clear that virtualization is here to stay.


Achieving Higher VDI Scalability and Performance on Microsoft Hyper-V with Seagate® 1200 SAS SSD Drives & Proximal Data AutoCache Software

After the advent of the Hyper-V version 3 hypervisor in Windows Server 2012, a steadily increasing portion of the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) world is being built upon Windows Server and Hyper-V. As always, performance of those VDI sessions is extremely critical, as well as the ability to scale up by loading ever-increasing numbers of VDI sessions onto each host server.
We found that the Seagate 1200 SAS SSDs (Solid State Drives), in conjunction with Proximal Data AutoCache software, provides an extremely cost-effective way to improve performance and scalability of VDI solutions based on Hyper-V.


Converged Storage Solution: Server SAN using Seagate 1200 SAS SSDs
