Datrium’s server powered storage solution splits server-powered speed from appliance-based durable capacity, simplifying storage management while reducing costs. Performance is offloaded, isolated and scales to the host directed by DVX Hyperdriver software. Writes go synchronously to the Datrium NetShelf, where data is kept durable, allowing easier VM administration.
It’s obvious why VMware matters. Through their work in the ESX hypervisor, fault tolerant clustering and many other projects, Boris and Ganesh have had a central view of the evolution of the vSphere ecosystem and the associated storage bottlenecks.
Data Domain produced the most widely deployed log-structured file system in history and the most widely deployed inline compressed / deduped file system. These are unorthodox storage foundations historically, but as it turns out they are central to the future of enterprise storage. As flash and disk media progress, they both require large, loggy writes. Also, write amplification in lower-cost SSDs is reduced by an order of magnitude leading to better durability based larger log writes with deduplication and compression inline, like Data Domain.
There are many storage companies, but only one Datrium.
