Intransa, the global leader of scalable, network-centric IP storage solutions, today announced that its StorStac System has been certified with VMware Infrastructure. As part of the certification program, Intransa is listed in the SAN Compatibility Guide for VMware ESX Server under the IP SAN section. The SAN Compatibility guide is the hardware compatibility list (HCL) for VMware ESX Server. As a leader in IP SAN enterprise storage with 1GbE, 2GbE and 10GbE interfaces, VMware certification extends Intransa’s commitment to providing customers with interoperable and open SAN technology.
Intransa has completed compatibility certification proving that VMware virtual machines can utilize storage capacity on Intransa’s PCU20 in addition to providing storage for the virtual machines hosted on VMware ESX Server hosts. Since Intransa IP SAN systems affordably scale from 4 to 1,000 terabytes of RAID-protected storage, and can leverage the company’s recently released DynaStac Thin Provisioning, this is an important announcement for customers looking to consolidate.
“VMware is thrilled to include Intransa as part of an elite group of IP SAN storage providers qualified for enterprise operations with VMware Infrastructure,” said Parag Patel, vice president, alliances, VMware. “VMware has paved the way in certifying support for enterprise systems and storage, and Intransa’s StorStac PCU20 augment VMware Infrastructure for midrange and enterprise operations.
