In the blog post Part 1: My take on PernixData FVP I mentioned the release date on FVP version 2.0 to be very soon. Well… PernixData went GA status with FVP 2.0 on the 1st of October.
I liked the announcement e-mail from Jeff Aaron (VP Marketing at PernixData) in which he first looks back at the release of version FVP 1.0 before he mentions the new features within FVP 2.0:
FVP version 1.0 took the world by storm a year ago with the following unique features:
- Read and write acceleration with fault tolerance
- Clustered platform, whereby any VM can remotely access data on any host
- 100% seamless deployment inside the hypervisor using public APIs certified by VMware.
Now FVP version 2.0 raises the bar even higher with the following groundbreaking capabilities:
- Distributed Fault Tolerant Memory (DFTM) – Listen to PernixData Co-founder and CTO, Satyam Vaghani, describe how we turn RAM into an enterprise class medium for storage acceleration in this recent VMUG webcast
- Optimize any storage device (file, block or direct attached)
- User defined fault domains
- Adaptive network compression
We will take a look at PernixData FVP 2.0, how to upgrade from version 1.5 and explore the newly introduced features…
