In this post, Managing Director of ESX Virtualization Vladan Seget breaks down Infinio’s newest release.
First cache storage vendor bringing a VMware vSphere 6.7 compatibilities is Infinio. Yes, Infinio Accelerator 3.4 Compatible with VMware vSphere 6.7. It uses VMware VAIO technology and it’s able, according to Infinio, achieve only an 80 microseconds (0.08ms) response time by caching the hottest data on host RAM. It also uses secondary cache, SSD storage, to provide optimum acceleration.
It is VMware Ready solution certified for vSphere 6.7. It is designed to use all available resource within the cluster so bigger the cluster, better the performance.
Infinio works with most storage that VMware supports, including SAN (Fibre Channel and iSCSI), NAS (NFS), and DAS hardware, as well as Virtual Volumes (VVOLs), and Virtual SAN (vSAN).
It uses an efficient deduplication to fetch content.
VMware VAIO stands for “vSphere APIs for IO Filtering”. It’s a new API framework technology present in vSphere 6.0 (6.0 U1 more precisely) allowing vendors to present capabilities for caching and replication to individual VMs. It’s a framework, not feature.
