Description

"StarWind always considered virtual storage systems to be valued for uptime, performance and flexibility – take one out and the system is useless. Hypervisor CPU and Networking overhead is a common issue for operations like VM provisioning, migration, and cloning. There should be a way to enhance performance by offloading the unnecessary CPU load and shrinking the SAN traffic. ODX and VAAI features do exactly this by offloading routine disk tasks to the storage array so they will be executed more effectively. That is if your SAN supports one of these features. StarWind Virtual SAN does both – just saying.
Watch this webinar dedicated to the use of Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and APIs for Array Integration (VAAI). Aidan Finn and Max Kolomyeytsev explain exactly how you can greatly enhance the storage system performance and increase VM density with Hyper-V and vSphere.
