The DVX is the first Enterprise storage system to split server-powered performance from a network attached durable-capacity appliance, all designed as a single end-to-end system. Performance uses your commodity host compute and flash, driven by Datrium Hyperdriver software uploaded to the host. Durable capacity is on an integrated external storage appliance, the Datrium Net- Shelf, which also coordinates the system and simplifies management. The DVX is fully VM-centric – there are no SAN or block storage artifacts to manage. A vSphere operator can run it with no SAN training.


Faster Software Development and Test
• Eliminates SAN read queuing delays
• Dedupe: more versions per TB stored
• NetShelf optimized for sequential IO

Simpler VM Consolidation

• No SAN, LUN, or tier admin, just VM admin
• Manage storage speed with vMotion
• Any commodity x86, including blades

Lower-Cost & Fast Virtual Desktops

• Instant, zero-copy desktop cloning
• Rapid provisioning with minimal overhead
• vSphere operators need no SAN training
