Storage Short: How to support 15,000 VMs on a NAS

Running a high-density virtualization environment on a NAS box is something many companies assume won’t work. But we wanted to try. In this lab test run by HDS and audited by Storage Switzerland, an 8-node Hitachi HNAS system reached over 400,000 operations per second. In the Storage Short below, Storage Switzerland Founder, George Crump, and HDS Product Manager, Paul Morrissey, show just how many VMs this system can accommodate.

For more information on these test results, view the recorded webinar “Enterprise NAS for Highly Dense VM Environments”.
