VMware has said Amway, iGov Technologies and SugarCreek will deploy the VMware Virtual SAN hyperconverged service to run business-critical applications and virtual desktop infrastructure.
The technology works to support shared storage for virtualized production environments that can scale out to several server providers, VMware said Tuesday.
Michigan-based Amway transitioned 300 application servers, databases and other workloads to Virtual SAN.
Systems integrator and value-added reseller iGov adopted Virtual SAN to build a portable model of the company’s tactical computing system for a U.S. government customer.
Ohio-based SugarCreek migrated its applications and compute environment to a virtualized ecosystem using vSphere and added a layer of security to the virtual machines through micro-segmentation using VMware NSX.
“Customers who originally bought into the exciting consolidation benefits of hyper-convergence are quickly expanding their use cases to business-critical applications now that enterprise storage features are fully supported and flash performance is available,” said Lee Caswell, vice president of the products, storage and availability business unit at VMware.
IGov and SugarCreek are set to exhibit their use of VMware Virtual SAN at the VMworld 2016 U.S. event from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1.
