Violin Embeds Symantec Data Management In Its Flash-Based Storage Arrays
Violin Memory in 2012 partnered with storage software vendor Symantec to embed Symantec data management capabilities on Violin's all-flash storage arrays.
Violin is embedding such data management capabilities as snapshots, clone copies, deduplication, replication and thin provisioning in its arrays with support from Symantec. Prior to the collaboration, customers who wanted those features had to use tools from other applications.
It was the first time that Violin, a pioneer in the flash memory-based storage array market, worked with a software vendor with the market reach of Symantec to add functionality to its products.
