FVP Freedom: Get Pernix’d for free

This posting is ~4 years years old. You should keep this in mind. IT is a short living business. This information might be outdated.

PernixData is one of the presenting sponsors at the Virtualization Field Day 5 (VFD5). One of the four key announcements is FVP Freedom.

FVP Freedom will be available in the Fall of 2015 and it’s a completely free version of PernixData FVP. Of course, the functionality is limited. FVP Freedom will only support a single cluster, but with an unlimited number of VMs. Instead of SSDs, FVP Freedom will support up to 128 GB of DFTM (Distributed Fault Tolerant Memory) per cluster. FVP Freedomm will be completely community supported.

You can register for FVP Freedom following this link.

Beside the announcement of FVP Freedom, PernixData also announced important enhancements to PernixData FVP. With the upcoming release of FVP, it will support VMware vSphere 6 and VVols. PernixData also added a new “phone home” functionality and a new HTML5 based GUI.

The two other announcements are PernixData Architect, a software to monitor your infrastructure from the storage perspective and which provides recommendations for your infrastructure, and PernixData Cloud. Latter provides a kind of benchmark how your infrastrucutre does compare to other infrastructures. The data for PernixData Cloud will provided by PernixData Architect and FVP Freedom.

You can watch the whole presentation on the VFD5 website. It will be available shortly.
