Seanodes Intros VM Edition

BOSTON -- Seanodes, the inventor and leading developer of Shared Internal Storage solutions, today introduced the latest version of its award-winning software, Exanodes - Virtual Machine Edition, which offers easy connectors and integration with server virtualization solutions to extend their capabilities to application servers’ internal disks by converting direct attached storage into networked storage.

As with previous versions of Exanodes, the VM Edition is designed to alleviate the pain points associated with network storage by enabling consolidation of an organization’s underutilized server storage into a high-performance virtualized storage pool. By combining disparate applications’ and operating servers’ storage throughout the enterprise and eliminating the need for a dedicated network storage array, Exanodes VM Edition creates a virtual SAN to provide total server virtualization, tackling cumbersome IT issues of complexity, performance, reliability and cost head on.

“Seanodes uniquely provides virtual server hypervisors the ability to utilize the internal and external direct attached storage (DAS) to itself and other virtual servers as a virtualized SAN without the requisite cost and complexity of a 'physical' SAN,” said Marc Staimer, President of Dragon Slayer Consulting. “The end result is a great deal simpler, higher performing, lower cost storage that more perfectly aligns with the promise of server virtualization.”
