Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Real-Time Tiering Excels In VMware(R) VSphere Environments

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 a white paper, " Architecting vSphere for the Dot Hill AssuredSAN™ Pro 5000," co-authored by Dot Hill and VMware. The white paper highlights the features of the AssuredSAN Pro 5000, including the system's unique RealStor™ autonomic, real-time tiering capabilities, which make it a highly complementary solution to VMware vSphere environments.

Dot Hill is an active partner with VMware in bringing comprehensive virtualized solutions to customers. The co-authored white paper provides a targeted list of best practices and configuration tips specific to VMware configurations and provides step-by step guidance on configuring the AssuredSAN™ Pro 5000 for VMware hosts on both iSCSI and Fibre Channel interfaces.

The Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 can support up to 240 virtual machines (VMs), running IOmark-VM workloads according to data in the latest Evaluator Group IOmark-VM benchmark report. The new IOmark-VM benchmark, the latest storage benchmark in the IOmark suite created by the IOmark organization, tests real-world workloads and measures a standard set of applications running in a virtual environment.

"Dot Hill and VMware are collaborating to educate IT professionals on how to optimize overall performance in vSphere virtualized environments," said Jim Jonez, senior director of marketing, Dot Hill. "Our AssuredSAN Pro 5000 blends a high-performance SSD tier and high-capacity rotating disk drive tiers with our patented RealStor autonomic, real-time tiering software to provide fast, reliable delivery of data in VMware vSphere environments. While other automated tiering systems use batch data migration schemes to sort data based on the previous day's patterns, the AssuredSAN Pro adjusts to dynamically variable workloads throughout the day in real-time, which is exactly what today's virtual data centers need."
