The Datrium™ DVX system is a new Enterprise storage alternative to inflexible and expensive Arrays or Hyperconverged servers. The DVX has two co-operative elements. ESX servers provide local storage compute and caching using DVX software and Bring Your Own (BYO) flash. A central HA appliance provides simple off-host shared durable capacity. The result is much easier storage scaling, with incredible price/performance, for dynamic datacenters.
