The Pillar Axiom platform is architected to help users consolidate their storage resources, while simplifying management to reduce the cost to acquire, administer, and maintain midrange storage systems. Aligned tightly with VMware’s ability to maximize efficiency for the server environment, Pillar integrates with VMware Infrastructure 3 to enable users to benefit from increased Quality of Service (QoS) at the storage layer. This allows for improved storage resource allocation, a highly available architecture and enhanced interoperability with the current infrastructure, which ensures that customers can drive maximum storage efficiency in a variety of application environments
“The strength of the Pillar Axiom lies in its unique ability to separate and prioritize the performance requirements for each application or database on each array, and allow the system to expand capacity or performance in line with the user’s requirements. This is a key enabling technology in making the Pillar Axiom the world’s most efficient midrange storage system,” said Mike Workman, CEO & Chairman of Pillar Data Systems. “VMware Infrastructure complements Pillar’s objective to aggregate resources, allowing users to combine and virtualize their SAN and NAS environments for a flexible, scalable and efficient architecture.”
As a member of the VMware TAP program, Pillar will provide IT organizations with a scalable solution that will enable them to consolidate their storage and server systems to maximize energy and space efficiencies, while retaining dynamic performance characteristics for application optimization. The combined solution offered by Pillar and VMware enables users to effectively consolidate their periphery elements and achieve high efficiency quotients.
