Synology XS Series Servers achieve VMware vSphere 5 VAAI Certification

Storage, Storage No Comments

SCALEWIRELESS storage solutions partner Synology Inc. announced fully support to VMware vSphere 5 vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) features for it’s XS servers.

Synology XS Series provides full VAAI support for intelligent storage server operation and improves the efficiencies in virtualization deployment. The Full Copy feature improves data cloning performance by offloading cloning operations from ESXi server to storage server and enabling virtual disks to be solely cloned by Synology XS Series.

Thin Provisioning integration between XS Series and ESXi server has also been optimized to monitor the space usage more precisely on Thin Provisioned LUNs.

In addition, Atomic Test & Set (ATS) removes the need to lock the LUN but instead locks a block when an update needs to occur and improves the performance when multiple ESXi servers access the same LUN simultaneously.

With comprehensive virtualization support, Synology offer users with greater simplicity, agility and efficiency. For more information, please visit:
