This is some great news for a Monday. Infinio has released their latest version which now fully supports vSphere 5.5. I did some extensive testing on their previous release which did not fully support vSphere 5.5 but the product was still solid. I highly recommend those who are looking for some increased performance on your NFS datastore(s) to take a look at them.
Below is the excerpt from their announcement.
INFINIO ACCELERATOR v1.2 NOW AVAILABLE
New release adds support for vSphere 5.5
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 3, 2014 – Infinio, innovative provider of downloadable storage performance, today announced general availability of Infinio Accelerator v1.2, now featuring support for VMware vSphere 5.5. “Since launching the product in November of last year, we’re pleased to be adding new platform support and continuing to gain new customers,” said Arun Agarwal, Infinio co- founder and CEO. “Our product allows customers to increase the ratio of host servers to storage systems in their virtualized environments, with virtually no operational cost.
“We do this with a software-only solution that takes just 30 minutes to install and requires no new hardware,” Agarwal continued. “The Infinio ‘secret sauce’ is an in-memory global cache that is shared and de-duplicated across the entire vSphere cluster.” More information on the product is available at http://www.infinio.com/about-our-product/why- should-you-use-it.
