Yesterday, Nexenta® Systems,  at the start of its OpenStorage Summit EMEA, announced the official release of NexentaVSA for View, a breakthrough solution that expands Nexenta’s proven ZFS-based storage software into virtualized desktop environments. A result of Nexenta’s strategic partnership with VMware, NexentaVSA for View simplifies several task of a virtual desktop environment:

  • Deploy: The VDI Deployment Wizard gives administrators the capability to create NFS / ZFS storage from local ESX storages of all clustered ESX servers and, subsequently, create virtual desktops based on this automated (created) storage.
  • Measure: Unprecedented performance testing, provided through NexentaVSA Performance Analyzer, allows administrators to continually meet an established level of performance for the deployed pool.
  • Calibrate: A basic feature within NexentaVSA is the ability to collect and keep performance data. NexentaVSA re-calibrates to meet pre-set parameters. This means that the pre-set levels for IOPS, latency, and bandwidth do not veer from standard as the system grows.

The product will be generally available for download in early June. For more information, see:
