PROVIDENCE, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- GreenBytes®, Inc. : ctt.marketwire.com/?release=987070&id=2631277&type=1& .. , a developer of full-featured virtual desktop solutions that uniquely support existing infrastructure, today announced the vIO™, a virtual storage appliance version of its award-winning desktop virtualization solution, the IO Offload Engine. The vIO offers additional virtual desktop deployment flexibility utilizing existing infrastructure resources, enabling enterprises and service providers to cost effectively scale their virtual desktop environment as the business requires. With GreenBytes' patented zero latency inline deduplication technology, IT is able to deliver full-featured persistent virtual desktops at cloud-scale, providing end users with a superior virtual desktop experience that is similar to the physical desktop they are most familiar with, all with 97% less storage space required.



The GreenBytes vIO virtual storage appliance was designed from the ground up as a desktop virtualization solution, providing the full-featured persistent virtual desktops that users want, with the manageability, scalability and affordability that make it possible. The vIO diverts OS and swap disk activity away from primary storage (SAN) to high-speed flash, solving the performance and latency problems and poor user experience that occur during peak usage. Integrated as an appliance (IO Offload Engine) or virtual storage appliance (vIO), the solution is easy to install and scales out in minutes, increasing performance, driving down costs and avoiding user interruption while protecting existing storage and infrastructure investments.





The vIO enables IT administrators to increase the performance of a new or existing virtual desktop infrastructure by integrating GreenBytes' patented zero latency inline deduplication software and a PCIe-based flash card, local SSD or flash-based storage controller with a VMware ESXi host. By moving the virtual desktop datastores to the vIO, inconsistent performance and crippling congestion become a thing of the past. Deployed and ready to present storage locally or externally via iSCSI or NFS in less than five minutes, IT can deliver persistent or non-persistent desktop images through their preferred desktop broker interface.



The vIO is cloud-scalable and can size to any desktop virtualization environment by deploying multiple vIO instances. A single vIO is designed to provide IO Offload for 100 or more persistent or non-persistent virtual desktops. For 1000+ virtual desktop deployments, customers can also utilize the pre-configured IO Offload Engine hardware appliance that supports up to 4500 persistent desktops over 10GbE iSCSI or 8 or 16Gb Fibre Channel.

The GreenBytes vIO virtual storage appliance will be generally available on March 1, 2013. For more information, please visit the vIO page on the GreenBytes website : ctt.marketwire.com/?release=987070&id=2631280&type=1& .. .

Supporting Quotes



Danny Allan, CTO, Desktone
"GreenBytes' vIO is a best-in-class solution, truly delivering on its promise of meeting the most demanding desktop virtualization use cases. Their patented zero latency inline deduplication technology delivers exceptional performance, even during boot and provisioning activities, and is completely transparent to existing architectures. The product is mature, vendor agnostic, and can cost-effectively handle cloud-scale deployments while offering a full-featured virtual desktop experience, delivering on SLAs that end-users expect."



Steve Duplessie, Founder and Sr. Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)
"Large-scale deployments of VDI are rare at best because users find VDI at scale is outrageously expensive and complex. GreenBytes' vIO for VDI ends both of these issues, allowing VDI deployments to scale massively, easily, and ridiculously inexpensively. I love this idea!"



Steve O'Donnell, Chairman and CEO, GreenBytes
"The vIO hits all of the CIO's concerns. It enables consistent and performant virtual desktops with the infrastructure and architecture already in place, at a market-leading price point. It is the simplest way to deploy desktop virtualization, from departmental to cloud-scale. All the cost, performance and user experience advantages of the IO Offload Engine are now available to smaller enterprises, cloud-scale service providers and OEMs with the vIO. Quick to install and deploy, with no racking, stacking or cabling required, simply introduce the vIO virtual storage appliance to the desktop virtualization infrastructure, enter a few configuration details, press play, and off you go."
