SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Maxta announced that VSS Monitoring, a world leader in network packet brokers, has implemented its highly resilient, scalable distributed VM Storage platform (MxSP™). MxSP improves the performance, automation and ease of use of VSS Monitoring’s virtualized infrastructure to satisfy current needs and expected future growth of its engineering IT infrastructure.
VSS Monitoring’s engineering group runs a diverse set of applications in a VMware vSphere environment, including testing and development of its solutions. The virtualized environment is planned to grow significantly over time and several virtual machines are expected to require very high storage performance. To extend the life of its engineering IT infrastructure beyond the initial 3-year expectancy, VSS Monitoring looked for a way to improve storage performance without spending an unreasonable amount of money. After evaluating several shared storage array options, the company chose MxSP, which provides all the features and functions it needs for 20% of the acquisition cost of the other options.
