EMC ScaleIO Delivers Elastic, Scalable, High Performance Software-Defined Block Storage

In the past, applications and OLTP workloads have demanded a server’s entire CPU and memory resources.  With breakthroughs in server technology, today there is more server power than ever with abundant CPU, RAM, Network and local disk capacity. ScaleIO enables applications and storage to run together in a hyperconverged infrastructure, simplifying operations and lowering cost in both bare-metal and virtual environments. ScaleIO provides enterprise-class storage capabilities while running applications, databases and hypervisors on the same application servers. EMC ScaleIO’s ability to provide elasticity, scalability and high performance make it a key component of Software-Defined Storage.

ScaleIO’s recent integration with ViPR, support for VSPEX configurations and improved GUI environment give EMC customers the ability to leverage any commodity servers to build a hyper-converged infrastructure. With this emerging Software-Defined Storage category called “ServerSAN,” service providers, SMBs and enterprises can achieve new levels of efficiency by converging the traditionally separated compute, networking and storage layers into a single IT platform.
