FuzeDrive Storage Device Virtualization Software Certified With Dell PowerEdge Servers

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - June 09, 2016) - Enmotus, a leading provider of memory and flash storage device virtualization software, today announced it has become a certified technology partner in Dell's Technology Partner Program. Combining FuzeDrive with Dell PowerEdge Servers allows end users to create large capacity memory or flash based storage capable of 10GB/s sequential access rates or several 100,000s of random IOs by combining commonly available storage and memory devices into one or more intelligent virtual disk drives.

Enmotus FuzeDrive is the first in a new category of products implementing a high performance storage device virtualization software designed to fit between raw storage devices and existing server based storage stacks, including emerging scale-out and software defined storage. This new intelligent device level storage layer is capable of supporting both full random and streaming data access patterns at equivalent all-flash or memory speeds as well as perform media independent device analytics and self-repair operations via a single user interface.

"The power of intelligent storage device level virtualization is that it gives users the freedom to choose a wider variety of high performance storage devices without impacting their applications or existing storage stacks, be they block or object storage based," said Andy Mills, chief executive officer of Enmotus. "When combined with servers like the Dell PowerEdge R730, very powerful compute-storage architectures are now possible that solve the performance-capacity-cost requirement of a much broader range of open storage system applications."

The Dell and Enmotus teams tested FuzeDrive using Iometer, an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool, on a virtual disk comprised of a PCIe Intel NVMe flash device and standard Dell hard drives. The tests demonstrated that the larger capacity FuzeDrive consistently attained the same performance level as a pure all-flash system based on PCIe SSDs. A joint solution guide is available on the Dell Technology Partner Program website.

"Testing by StorageIO Labs utilizing Dell's Benchmark Factory tool and a Dell R730 Server validated that a FuzeDrive enabled solution consistently operates at SSD performance levels," said Greg Schulz, Founder and Sr. Consulting Analyst of independent IT advisory consultancy firm Server StorageIO. "FuzeDrive clearly offers Dell PowerEdge users unparalleled value by properly balancing the PACE attributes (Performance, Availability, Capacity and Economics)," added Schulz.

Free 30 day trial versions of FuzeDrive Software are available on the Enmotus website.
