Troika to demonstrate combined server and storage virtualization solution

Quoting from Business Wire:

Troika Networks, Inc., the leading provider of network-based storage services solutions and enabling technologies, announced today that it will attend this year’s VMWorld 2004 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, October 27-29. At the show, Troika will demonstrate its storage virtualization and volume management solutions for VMware ESX Server. Troika is located at booth #412.

“As a VMware Technology Software Alliance partner, we look forward to participating in this conference and having the opportunity to show how Troika’s virtualization software and volume management solutions can benefit and integrate with VMware’s virtual infrastructure software products,” said Steve O’Brian, vice president marketing, Troika Networks.

Troika’s storage virtualization solution extends VMware’s virtual infrastructure software by adding full Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) virtualization capabilities through Troika’s Accelera Network Storage Services Platform. As a result, administrators will be able to create and provision any-sized storage from a common storage pool at the same time they are creating and provisioning virtual storage servers.

The integrated Troika and VMware solution leverages software from StoreAge Networking Technologies. The Troika Accelera/StoreAge SVM storage virtualization solution features a full set of data management tools, including snapshot, mirroring and replication functions, which provides users with a comprehensive set of business continuity tools that run in a heterogeneous environment. The solution is ideal for VMware environments, and supports high availability configurations for increased uptime and reliability. The generally available solution is now shipping globally to end users, and has been deployed at multiple customer sites in both the U.S. and across Europe.

The Troika Accelera/StoreAge SVM storage virtualization solution has been fully qualified for VMware ESX Server 2.1.1 and 2.1.2. The solution supports a wide variety of storage hardware and infrastructure products.
