Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Achieves Outstanding Performance In VMware(R) VSphere Environments

Stocks in this article: HILL

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VMworld -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, today announced the release of the official Evaluator Group IOmark-VM benchmark report, which confirms that Dot Hill's AssuredSAN™ Pro 5000 Series real-time automated tiered storage solution delivers exceptional performance in VMware vSphere environments.

The report marks the debut of the IOmark-VM benchmark, the latest storage benchmark in the IOmark suite created by the IOmark organization. The IOmark-VM benchmark tests real-world workloads, measuring a standard set of applications running in a virtual environment. According to the report, audited by IOmark, the Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 supported 240 virtual machines (VMs) at a cost of $509 per VM, running IOmark-VM workloads. The Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 supported the standard set of applications according to the IOmark-VM benchmark with a mean response time of 8.92 milliseconds.

"IOmark-VM allows us to more accurately answer the question, 'how many VMs can my storage system support,' " said Russ Fellows, senior partner at Evaluator Group. "After testing other systems in our labs with IOmark-VM, we can say the Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 yielded an outstanding price/performance result, due in part to Dot Hill's real-time automated tiering capabilities."

"Dot Hill is working with key partners such as VMware to develop the next-generation virtual data center," said Jim Jonez, senior director of marketing, Dot Hill. "The real-time tiering of our AssuredSAN Pro 5000 is highly cost-effective, allowing organizations to get more from their storage investment. Our unique RealStor™ software allows the AssuredSAN Pro to be more responsive than comparable storage systems by automatically identifying 'hot' data and moving it in real-time to the high-performance SSD tier. While other autotiering systems use batch data migration schemes to sort data based on the previous day's patterns, the AssuredSAN Pro addresses dynamic workloads on a real-time basis."
