Supermicro® Solutions integrated with VMware Virtual SAN

Supermicro’s Virtual SAN (VSAN) Ready Nodes focus on deploying VMware® Virtual SAN™ system,a hypervisorconverged solution, as quickly as possible. Virtual SAN provides you with the ability to provision and manage compute, network and storage resources from a single pane of management. Working with VMware, Supermicro delivers an alternative to traditional Fiber Channel SAN based virtualization infrastructure, which is known for its complexity and interoperability challenges.

Targeted at a multitude of use cases in tier 1/2 production workloads and Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), especially with all flash VSAN 6.0, Supermicro’s VSAN Ready Nodes introduce a new high performance storage tier optimized for enterprise-class virtual environments that is simple, resilient and efficient that reduces the total cost of ownership. It is a perfect solution for Enterprises ROBO and SMBs to efficiently grow and manage virtualized infrastructure for maximum ROI.

A Virtual SAN Ready Node is a preconfigured single-node or multi-node server hardware configuration for use with Virtual SAN. A Ready Node configuration includes specific type and amount of CPU, Memory, Flash, HDD, and IO Controller devices within each server. Each VSAN Ready Node is classified by a Ready Node configuration profile.


Defined Ready Node profiles include:

• Hybrid Ready Node Profiles*
– HY-8 Series: Up to 100 VMs per node
– HY-6 Series: Up to 50 VMs per node
– HY-4 Series: Up to 30 VMs per node
– HY-2 Series: Up to 20 VMs per node

 

• All-Flash Ready Node Profiles*
– AF-8 Series: Up to 120 VMs per node
– AF-6 Series: Up to 60 VMs per node
– AF-4 Series: Up to 30 VMs per node

Fully System Integration

Each configuration profile provides a differentiated price/performance focus, targeting multiple use case requirements. Each profile assumes a target number of Virtual Machines per node, utilizing an average Virtual Machine profile size. Fault tolerance is built into the solution with data replication between nodes, and clustering technology. Flash and hard disks are seamlessly integrated to achieve best balance in performance and capacity.
