WD Addresses Increasing Application Workload Demands For Vmware Environments

Western Digital Corporation today announced that two of its most compelling data center devices are now certified for use with VMwareآ® environments1, including the high-capacity yet cost-effective SanDisk-branded CloudSpeedآ™ Eco Gen. II SATA solid state drive (SSD) and the HGST-branded Ultrastarآ® SN100 PCI Express (PCIe) NVMe SSD, which was rated in VMware’s highest performance class2. Either used independently or together for enhanced data center benefits, these SSDs bring consistent performance and rapid responsiveness to virtual desktops, databases, e-mail, cloud services, and other business-critical applications. The company will showcase the newly certified SSDs and multiple new all-flash Virtual SAN Ready Nodes that were created in collaboration with HPEآ® at its VMware Europe booth (#G313).
