VMware running embedded on a Flash Array – Violin signs an OEM agreement

This announcement just showed up in my inbox. I really want to see how it’s architected. Hopefully on the weekend I can dig into this a bit see what is going on under the hood.

Today, 1.35 million IOPSsigned an OEM agreement with VMWare, embedding vSphere natively on Violin’s Flash Memory Arrays, helping customers achieve a fully virtualized data center. This is one of the many steps Violin has taken to apply the benefits of flash create specialized application acceleration appliances like Virtual Database-in-a-box, Private Cloud-in-a-box and VDI-in-a-box.

At noon today, Violin will also announce an ESG Labs test validating Violin’s ability to deliver 1.35 million IOPS for virtualized mixed workloads on VMware vSphere, and scale up to 10,000 virtual desktops on a single array using VMware View.

The numbers are numbers but direction for embedded hypervisors is the interesting part. More local storage happening.
