Enterprise storage company Texas Memory Systems launched on Wednesday a line of products that bundle its solid-state hardware with a hypervisor provided by DataCore Software.
DataCore's SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor adds storage management features to Texas Memory's RamSan disks. The company hopes that bundling the products makes for a simpler, more cost-effective choice for IT administrators.
The combo is best suited for server and desktop virtualisation projects and should allow VMware administrators to lower the amount of memory allocated to each guest OS without sacrificing too much performance. By pooling and mirroring disk blocks across available devices, the software speeds up I/O response and throughput.
