July 14, 2008 - Pillar Data Systems, a leading provider of application-aware storage systems, announced compatibility of its Application-Aware Axiom with virtualized VMware environments.


The Pillar Axiom and Axiom MC are now listed on the VMware SAN compatibility guide for VMware ESX 3.5 and ESXi 3.5.


The Pillar Axiom extends the benefits of server virtualization by enabling a virtualized infrastructure, which features basic connectivity, multipathing with host bus adapters and storage port failover on VMware ESX 3.5 and 3i Servers.


Similar to the functionality of VMware at the server level, the Pillar Axiom creates virtual storage logical unit numbers and file systems tuned specifically to the needs of each application.


The Pillar Axiom has the ability to dynamically assign or reassign priorities to applications users deem most important to improve overall storage performance, while reducing the input/output bottleneck seen in legacy storage systems. Because the Axiom is tuned to work effectively in these types of environments, it can support 50 percent more virtual machines than competitive storage environments.
