Pancetera Unite: Virtualization I/0 Acceleration Podcast – Episode 133

In Episode 133, Douglas Brown interviews Henrik Rosendahl, CEO at Pancetera. Doug and Henrik discuss the Pancetera Unite solution to accelerate virtual storage I/O. Henrik does an amazing job introducing us to Pancetera’s recently announced ‘Unite’ solution, their mission, the key technologies (SmartRead and SmartView), product benefits, what it takes to install, how customers are utilizing it, and much more.

About Pancetera Unite

Pancetera Unite is a software virtual appliance that enables you to integrate standard filesystem tools, such as backup, replication, and migration software, with your VMware virtual infrastructure.

You work with Pancetera Unite as you would with any other NAS product: mount the Pancetera Unite filesystem as a CIFS share or NFS mount, and then do all the standard operations, such as copying files, as you would with any other filesystem. The difference is that you do not write to the Pancetera Unite filesystem; instead, it is populated with the VM files from your vSphere ESX or ESXi servers. Hosts and VMs appear in directories that you can browse, regardless of what type of storage you use or which ESX server the VM runs on. One installation of Pancetera Unite can span your entire virtual environment.

The Pancetera Unite virtual appliance is low impact, requiring only 640 MB of RAM and generating almost no disk or network activity unless a client of the Unite filesystem invokes a file operation.

About Henrik Rosendahl, CEO

Henrik is a successful serial entrepreneur with extensive business development and sales experience. Henrik founded In2itive Technologies in 1992, which was successfully sold to SPSS in 1997. Henrik was also formerly the CEO of Interse A/S, EVP PremiTech inc. and VP at IT Factory Inc.
