VMworld 2012: Storage Takes Center Stage (Part 2)


Whiptail, Whippany, N.J., said at VMworld that it will exclusively use SSDs from Boise, Idaho-based Micron in its Accela and Invicta all-NAND flash arrays. Accela is Whiptail's base flash array, and it scales from 3 TB to 12 TB. Customers can scale Accela storage up into Invicta, which scales from 6 TB to 72 TB.

At VMworld, Whiptail is demonstrating an 18-TB Invicta with Micron drives handling a VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) bootstorm of 600 desktops, simulated MS SQL workload (SQLio) and IOmeter workloads.
