Pillar Meets VMware Requirements

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- As a member of the VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program, Pillar Data Systems, a leading provider of Application-Aware Storage Systems, today announced compatibility of its Application-Aware Axiom with virtualized VMware environments. The Pillar Axiom and Axiom MC are now listed on the VMware SAN compatibility guide for VMware ESX 3.5 and ESXi 3.5.

This new level of functionality reinforces Pillars long-standing commitment to providing application-centric storage services that are optimized to the specific performance requirements of each virtual machine in VMware deployments. The Pillar Axiom extends the benefits of server virtualization by enabling a virtualized infrastructure which features basic connectivity, multipathing with HBAs, and storage port failover on VMware ESX 3.5 and 3i Servers.

Similar to the functionality of VMware at the server level, the Pillar Axiom creates virtual storage LUNs and file systems tuned specifically to the needs of each application. The Pillar Axiom also enables a level of performance, scalability, reliability and value that is unobtainable with traditional infrastructures. Customers realize the full potential and savings of virtualization when the Axiom storage system is managed as a single functional unit within the VMware virtual infrastructure.
