Violin Memory: Concerto 2200 Data Reduction Appliance
At VMworld, Santa Clara, Calif.-based Violin Memory unveiled inline deduplication and inline compression tailored for NFS environments with its new Concerto 2200 data reduction appliance.
The Concerto 2200 provides granular control to turn deduplication and compression on or off based on its impact on specific workloads. It lets IT departments deploy and decide if tier-one applications and workloads benefit from deduplication and compression based on the Concerto dashboard, which shows actual workload deduplication rates. The Concerto 2200 offers up to a 6:1 savings in capacity while supporting NFS ingestion to provide an effective cost as low as $75 per virtual desktop.
