The solution will be demonstrated in booth #211 at the Moscone Center. ATTO’s Gen 5 powered, Celerity 16Gb line of Fibre Channel HBAs provide the ideal end-to-end solution for managing data center performance across virtualized SAN environments while extending the value of fabric virtualization. ATTO’s Celerity line unleashes the full potential of high-density server virtualization, cloud architectures, and next-generation storage, such as SSD-based systems. This highly integrated family of adapters is engineered to optimize data transfer using a combination of exclusive features. N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), a key feature of ATTO’s HBA technology, enables each Fibre Channel HBA to define multiple “virtual ports”, which can be assigned to each virtual machine, enabling administrators to manage storage in much the same way they manage storage attached to physical machines. ATTO’s proprietary MultiPath Director(TM) technology provides uninterrupted access to storage with automatic path failover and failback, and is the only solution that allows workstations, not just servers, direct connection to high-availability, high-performance enterprise-class storage for shared workflows. The latest addition to the ExpressSAS family, the 12Gb SAS/SATA HBA, provides users with fast and reliable storage connectivity while enabling scalability for next generation platforms and infrastructures. Optimized for extremely low latency and high-bandwidth data transfer, ATTO’s wide variety of port configurations and RAID levels offer flexibility and reliability for the most demanding applications The ATTO family of FastFrame NICs deliver high performance I/O connectivity and lossless Ethernet support where guaranteed data delivery rates are required. As a pioneer in iSCSI, ATTO’s FastFrame product line has been designed for more rigorous data transfer and reliability standards required for storage interconnect, with driver support for Linux(R), Mac(R), Windows(R) and VMware vSphere(R). Available in single, dual and quad-port configurations, the 10GbE NICs can be used anywhere in your infrastructure, including workstations, storage, servers and data center racked servers. Leveraging ATTO’s exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS(TM)) Technology, FastFrame products provide high bandwidth and managed latency for high-performance, enterprise-level iSCSI storage as well as standard 10GbE network infrastructures. “With the addition of the 7500 storage controller, ATTO further extends the industry’s broadest range of storage & network connectivity products, all optimized to work together.” added Arvidson. “From workgroup to enterprise, ATTO provides technology for all facets of the new IT performance challenges. But the true testament of ATTO’s industry leadership can be seen in over 30 booths throughout the show floor which have certified ATTO as part of their solutions.” For a complete list of ATTO’s VMworld 2014 partners or to see a demo, please stop by ATTO’s booth #221, and follow on Twitter @ATTOTechnology for updates throughout the show.

An example could be the setting up of a Linux distribution as a VM on a computer running Windows as the host OS. Software developed for Linux can be run on the VM. The combination of hardware and software on the host machine which enables the creation and running of VMs is called as the hypervisor. Hypervisors come in two flavours: bare-metal and hosted. While bare-metal solutions install directly on the hardware (VMware ESXi, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V), hosted ones run on top of a host OS. As examples of the latter, we have Oracle VM VirtualBox, QEMU and Hyper-V for Windows. QNAP’s Virtualization Station is also a hosted hypervisor. It is based on QEMU (determined by taking a look at the running processes in the QNAP TS-451 with a VM active). QEMU powers almost all of the Linux-based virtualization technologies. It takes advantage of the hardware-level support in processors (an additional reason why QNAP’s Virtualization Station is supported only on models with CPUs supporting VT-x capabilities). Readers interested in learning more about virtualization (particularly from a SMB / SME viewpoint) can peruse our articles focused on that market segment. In the rest of this write-up, we will take a detailed look at QNAP’s Virtualization Station, followed by a hands-on report of how it works in the TS-451.
