A closer look at GreenBytes


Followers of my blog will have seen a number of articles posted recently about storage vendors that I managed to catch up with at this year’s VMware Partner Exchange in Las Vegas. In the last in this series of articles, I managed to spend some time with the folks from GreenBytes. The timing was very opportune, as GreenBytes just made a major announcement to their portfolio, namely their new vIO, the virtual storage appliance version of their IO Offload Engine solution for desktop virtualization. I met up with Michael Robinson (VP, Marketing), Jeff Eberhard (Sr. Systems Engineer) and Steve O’Donnell (CEO) of GreenBytes to get the low-down on their current product offerings and to learn a bit more about their very recent vIO announcement.

First off, there are a number of supported arrays from GreenBytes on the VMware HCL, namely their older GB series of arrays (which are no longer actively marketed) and their HA2200 model. However, their newer IOOE – IO Offload Engine – has recently appeared on our HCL, too. We talked a little bit about the IOOE, and where GreenBytes positions this product. IOOE is aimed squarely at the VDI market, but with a scale out aspect. It can scale starting at 1,000 VDI desktops, but can move up to 4,500 seats for a fully populated array. The scalability is based on the SSD capacity of the array. If additional seats over and above 4,500 are required, a new array can be deployed.
