LITTLETON, Mass., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SANBlaze Technology, Inc., a pioneer in storage emulation solutions, today announced a Class of Storage emulation solution, which will be demonstrated at VMworld®. (Booth 502)
With over 10 years of experience delivering storage emulation solutions to nearly every storage vendor worldwide, SANBlaze developed an application that allows storage and datacenter engineers and architects to model applications against different classes of target storage in an easy to use, virtualized manner.
Emulated arrays are built with virtual building blocks such as SSD's, HDD's and WAN delays to simulate the performance characteristics of real arrays, hybrid arrays or cloud storage. For example, loading different array profiles with a single mouse click or command can change the target storage environment from an all hard drive array to a flash only array, including related performance attributes. An application can run with the first storage case, and then rerun against the next, providing valuable application modeling insight and informed storage purchasing and deployment decisions.
While many tools in the market can model application loads while running on existing infrastructure, the SANBlaze Class of Storage emulator uniquely provides for emulated changes to the storage infrastructure, allowing for "What if" type architecture decisions to be simulated without the cost and complexity of real devices. Additionally, since the emulator runs in RAM, a near zero latency (NZL) mode removes storage latency from the equation when attempting to determine application and infrastructure bottlenecks, helping to flush out potential issues.
"Our base emulation product has hundreds of storage parameters that can be programmed to provide thousands of different storage environments," said Steve Munroe, President of SANBlaze. "Delivering an application that extracts this technology into common, storage array building blocks is a natural product extension for SANBlaze. It provides enterprise datacenter engineers and storage system architects all the benefits of using emulation for pre-deployment, application modeling and performance test cases."
SANBlaze VirtuaLUN™ target emulation systems are available in a number of physical appliance configurations or available as software to run standalone or as a virtual appliance.

Most organizations prioritize data security only after their data has already been compromised. Proactive prevention is important, but how can you accomplish that on a small budget? Learn how the cloud, combined with a defense and in-depth approach, creates efficiencies by transferring and assigning risk. Security requires a multi-defense approach, and an in-house team may only be able to cherry pick from the essential components. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Vlad Friedman, CEO/Founder o...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
