NexentaStor virtual HA-Appliances with VMware

Nexenta can extend VMware to a fully software-defined hyper-converged solution, using NexentaStor virtual appliances to present physical storage with redundancy and ZFS data protection as a fully VMware compatible datastore. Two virtual appliances can be setup to provide high availability.

Virtual Volumes (VVOLs) abstracts or virtualize physical hardware resources (NAS devices) into logical pools of storage capacity (Virtual Volumes datastores) that can be configured on the fly without disruption. NexentaStor supports file services and several advanced storage features such as replication, snapshots, and clones. The NAS pools can be virtualized as VVOL datastores. VVOLs enable a more efficient operational model in a virtualized environment because they are centered around the VM or VMDKs, rather than the physical infrastructure. 

  • Configure and incrementally scale your storage infrastructure by adding datastores using a point and click interface.
  • Identify performance bottlenecks and review capacity utilization trends.
  • Quickly adapt to changing data protection needs through local and remote replication, and on demand and scheduled local snapshots.
  • Increase security through integration with vCenter’s role-based authentication mechanism (multi-tenancy).
  • Two Virtual Machines stored on different VMware ESXi hosts can be setup for High Availability (HA).
