Paired with Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2, the Virsto storage hypervisor is a simple plug-in that uniquely solves the storage problems associated with server virtualization. With Virsto, enterprises can:
- Reduce VM disk footprint by 90%
- Unclog I/O bottlenecks and triple VM density
- Eliminate 99% of the time spent provisioning VM storage
Virsto also brings the benefits of storage virtualization to Microsoft Virtual Desk Infrastructure (VDI).
“As Windows Server Hyper-V increasingly becomes the virtualization solution of choice for strategic workloads in the enterprise, customers look to Microsoft’s partners to offer differentiated solutions that fill specific needs. Companies like Virsto extend Windows Server Hyper-V to deliver additional benefits in virtual machine storage provisioning, VM performance and storage space efficiency, helping Microsoft deliver differentiated value to its customers.”

“What Hyper-V does exceptionally well is bring the benefits of server virtualization to VDI and customers at a very low total cost of ownership. Now, with the prospect of adding Virsto with VDI, you could enhance the current TCO benefits of Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V virtualized server consolidation. This could mean a more attractive cost per virtual desktop.
Examples like this are a major reason why Microsoft is focused on building a robust ecosystem of strategic ISVs to support the growing number of Hyper-V and System Center users.”
