Storage for Virtualization

Faster IT Provisioning, Deployment, and Disaster Recovery

Virtualization is essential for businesses to keep up with the growing demand of IT resources. It enables centralized IT system provisioning and deployment within minutes, allowing the businesses to create or switch a replication site for disaster recovery when mishaps happen.

Because of this growing virtualization demand, Infortrend offers a high cost-performance, massive capacity, and flexible and reliable data storage for virtualization platforms such as VMware ® vSphere, Microsoft® Hyper-V®, and Citrix® XenServer.

VMware vSphere

Infortrend offers vSphere-certified 6.5 HTML plug-in for native datastore deployment within the VMware environment, delivering an optimal manageability and usability. With its compatibility in vCenter 6.5 update 2 release, this ensures the compliance of the updated security requirements.
