Xtravirt Virtual SAN released

The Xtravirt Virtual SAN (XVS) appliance for VMware ESX3 Server, is a free solution to provide the benefits of shared VMFS storage without the cost of a SAN – this allows the utilization of otherwise unused local storage in the ESX server to facilitate enterprise level features such as VMotion, DRS and HA normally only available through the use of a shared storage device. All volume data is synchronously replicated between hosts, providing full fail-over capability with data integrity in the event of host, disk or appliance failure. The appliance is menu driven and has been designed to be as easy to configure as possible, and full documentation is provided. 

Its features include:

  • XVS is a SAN and local Disaster Recovery all-in-one
  • It provides enterprise level functionality such as VMotion, DRS, and HA, all using direct attached storage
  • All volume data is synchronously replicated between hosts providing full failover capability with data integrity in the event of a host, disk or appliance failure

Excelente Gaby, justo esta semana estábamos hablando del tema. Tu blog es una web obligatoria un par de veces por semana. También lo doy en mis cursos, que no te extrañe recibir visitas del viejo continente. Un fuerzo abrado.

Hola Edu!

Gracias por el comentario y gracias por la recomendación ;) Ya me parecía que esas visitas de Madrid y Barcelona venían por referencias suyas!

Un gran abrazo también desde Canadá!
