PernixData Announces Support for VMware vSphere 5.5 and Web Client

Company Underscores Virtualization Expertise and Commitment to VMware Customers With New vSphere Integration Features

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2014) - PernixData, the leader in virtualizing server flash, today announced support for VMware vSphere 5.5 and vSphere Web Client in the newest release of the company's FVP™ software. With these latest developments, PernixData customers have complete confidence that their Flash Hypervisor software can be transparently deployed in all modern vSphere environments, using the standard vSphere management tools and procedures to which they are accustomed.

"PernixData has a rich pedigree in virtualization that enables us to introduce strategic features ahead of the industry, including the first ever product to natively support vSphere Web client," said Bala Narasimhan, director of product management at PernixData. "This not only differentiates us from an ease of integration and operations standpoint, but it ensures that FVP delivers the best performance for all virtualized applications at the lowest possible cost."

PernixData's extensive knowledge of VMware and commitment to customers using vSphere is evident in the following unique FVP features:

  • Robust vSphere support. FVP supports all versions of VMware 5.0 and greater. As customers upgrade their VMware virtual infrastructure, they can be assured that the PernixData FVP solution will continue to eliminate storage bottlenecks for optimal application performance.
  • Seamless management via vSphere Web Client. All FVP operations are managed seamlessly from within vSphere, such as configuring flash clusters and monitoring application and storage performance. PernixData is the first vendor to natively support vSphere web client, enabling these tasks to be handled using any web browser -- no separate client software is required. With FVP, the user experience is identical to that experienced natively with vSphere.
  • Seamless deployment: PernixData FVP software is deployed inside the vSphere hypervisor in under 20 minutes, with no changes (or reboots) required to VMs, servers or primary storage.
  • Clustered platform compatible with all VMware operations: PernixData FVP uses patent-pending Flash Cluster™ technology to enable any host to remotely access the flash device(s) on any other host in the cluster. This technology enables PernixData FVP to seamlessly support all VMware operations and products, such as vMotion, DRS, HA, Snapshot, VDP, Site Recovery Manager™, Horizon View™ and vCloud Director®.

"It is great to see PernixData grow their world class product in lock step with VMware and their latest vSphere features," said Pete Koehler, IT Manager at Tecplot. "This gives us great confidence that this game changing solution will continue to evolve with our virtualization infrastructure and keep pace with our most stringent storage performance needs."

"We are thrilled when companies create products that are easy to install and deploy with minimal or no disruption to existing and future VMware environments," said Eric Kaplan, CTO at Ahead. "PernixData's commitment to VMware and knowledge of vSphere is unprecedented and results in an enterprise class solution that delivers a tremendous amount of value back to our clients."
