LeftHand Networks Extends Virtualization Capabilities
SAN/iQ 8 Delivers New Levels of Efficiency, Capacity Utilization, and Simplified Management

The SAN/iQ 8 software addresses these cost, utilization and availability challenges. By storing de-duplicated system images with SmartClone, customers can cost effectively store image data on their SAN. Storage clustering addresses performance bottlenecks by load balancing the system image across every disk drive in the SAN to ensure that peak boot-up windows are supported. In addition, SAN/iQ Network RAID provides superior availability by protecting against system, rack, and even site failures -- something dual controller systems with hardware RAID cannot do without expensive and complex software add-ons.

"Customer deployments of VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) continue to grow rapidly as companies realize the benefits of improved desktop management and streamlined IT processes," said Jeff Jennings, vice president of desktop product and solutions, VMware."LeftHand Networks' SAN/iQ product line complements VMware VDI deployments with its cost-effective and scalable storage management."

"SAN/iQ 8 features can help simplify deployment and improve storage space efficiency within Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V environments," said Dai Vu, director of virtualization solutions at Microsoft. "Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager and LeftHand Network's new SAN/iQ management enhancements complement each other and are examples of the management tools customers require as they move to a dynamic IT infrastructure."

"The SAN/iQ 8 software platform with its SmartClone feature and built-in high availability is a great option for customers deploying Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, and XenServer environments," said Matt Fairbanks, vice president of product marketing, Virtualization & Management Division, Citrix Systems. "We are pleased that LeftHand Networks SANs are certified Citrix-Ready solutions. We are working with LeftHand to leverage the built-in functions of the SAN/iQ 8 software platform for thin provisioning, cloning and snapshot of virtual machines within the storage management domain to increase performance of storage-focused virtual machine operations."

"LeftHand Networks' new SAN/iQ API is quite advanced and when used in conjunction with Quest's Virtual Access Suite enables us to programmatically create and manage SmartClone volumes, automating the storage management tasks associated with hundreds of virtualized desktops and reducing the storage requirements for Quest-enabled platform-independent VDI deployments," says Peter Ghostine, chief technology officer, Quest Software's Provision Networks Division.
