SimpliVity's Integrated Systems Innovation:
SimpliVity understands the market's need to address this new,
rapidly-growing data center transformation trend, and provides a
unique Data Virtualization Platform delivered on hyperconverged
infrastructure that reduces IO per second (IOPS), optimizes capacity
and improves operational efficiency.
SimpliVity provides a radical simplification by consolidating
infrastructure functionality into a single unified stack running on
hyperconverged x86 building blocks-delivered at a fraction of cost and
with extreme reduction in complexity. Deploying a network of two or

machine, and enabling VM-mobility.
High performance and capacity efficiency by eliminating redundancy
via deduplication, compression and optimization of data at
Integrated data protection, including built-in virtual machine
(VM) backup and efficient replication between primary and disaster
recovery (DR) sites.
Unified global management across multiple-node and multiple-site
