The Intel® Solid-State Drive 910 Series adds VMware certification to a long list of desirable features, assuring solution support from the two providers. Now, VMware servers can obtain greater hypervisor guest scalability taking advantage of the 910’s 2000 MB/s and 180k IOPS throughput versus a few hundred IOPS from high rpm hard drives. With the 910’s greater storage throughput, today’s VMware servers can scale for tomorrow’s virtualization workloads by achieving higher CPU utilization, reducing the need to deploy additional servers.
