Klas Telecom announced today that, after rigorous testing, VMware now supports vSAN 6.7 on the Voyager Tactical Data Center (Voyager TDC 2.0). VMware is further extending the market for HCI to austere environments where low size, weight, power and ruggedization are required—packaging vSAN with enterprise-grade storage and compute into the size of an airline carry-on rollaway case.
Voyager TDC + vSAN
By using Voyager TDC with VMware vSphere and vSan organizations can rapidly and easily deploy an enterprise-grade storage and compute network in the size of an airline carry-on rollaway case so users can access, collect, store, process, analyze and disseminate high volumes of data locally rather than having to rely on bandwidth-constrained backhaul to access an offsite data centre. Voyager TDC is designed to military ruggedization standards and provides the highest compute performance per watt and storage per cubic inch than any other solution available in the tactical market. Voyager TDC saves time, money and resources by reducing hardware footprint (the system replaces hundreds of pounds of traditionally-deployed server room equipment), simplifying transportation and logistics (the case can be hand carried) and lowering total cost of ownership for customers. “One specific customer told us that by utilizing the Voyager TDC, they literally saved 1.25 million dollars per deployment,” said David Huisenga, President and CEO at Klas Telecom Government. “That’s a ton of money conserved after the initial purchase and during each deployment that people don’t often think about when procuring communication equipment. We are excited to provide that capability to VMware customers.”
