UnityVSA is Taking Off – Are you on board?


Nearly 3,000 copies of the UnityVSA software-defined storage solution have been downloaded to date.  The Community Edition is a no-cost version of the product that enables users to get full functionality for up to 4TB of data, while the Professional Editions include EMC support and manage as much as 50TB.


If you are considering Unity storage platforms for your environment, the UnityVSA is a great way to explore nearly (I was going to say ‘virtually’) all of the features of the Unity systems, with just a vSphere client and local server storage.  Already have a Unity platform?  The UnityVSA can provide value in a number of ways, from easily deploying Unity-compatible test and dev resources to providing low-cost storage for edge deployments, with replication to or from the core of your infrastructure.


It’s simple to get started

Just see the VSA Download information on the Unity ECN page to get started with installation and licensing.  And as with Unity hardware products, the UnityVSA Info Hub, found under the Learn section, provides links to a plethora of resources for planning, installation and product knowledge.
