In the previous post I’ve introduced some concept of the Nutanix approach to the storage (and not only, because it include also the compute and the networking part). Basically we can use the slogan “No SAN”, but as written is more than a simple local storage approach. To have more information and some example also of the user interface see this documents: Nutanix ESG Lab Review Nutanix Complete Cluster Datasheet Nutanix and View (how use Nutanix with a VDI environment)
Nutanix is a start-up company founded in in September 2009 with the scope to realize a new SAN-less virtualized datacenter platform, converging two tiers of infrastructure down to one. On May, 14th 2012, Nutanix has officially started its EMEA division. The introduction video explains most the the basis concept of Nutanix storage approach. Also there are other blog that have a more exhaustive introduction (see in the final reference).
DataCore Software is an independent software vendor, founded on February 4, 1998 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializing in storage virtualization, storage management, and storage networking. Its main product, SANsymphony-V (now at the V9.0) forms a transparent, scalable virtualization layer across your storage infrastructure in order to enhance its capabilities and centralize its management. The many nuances that distinguish one model or brand of storage from another and render them mutually incompatible no longer stand in the way of using them together.
