Acropolis VM Storage

Efficient, high-performance, and enterprise-grade VM storage

What is VM Storage?

Acropolis provides enterprise-grade VM-centric storage for virtualized applications. Unlike traditional storage solutions that were built in a pre-virtualization era, operations in Acropolis are optimized to work at a granularity of a single VM or vDisk. Additionally, complex storage operations such as LUN provisioning, zoning and masking are non-existent in Acropolis enabling deployment of highly available storage with just a few clicks.
