Scale Memory Capacity and Availability for VMware ESX
Host is not responsive. Virtual machines cannot be started. Applications in virtual machines run out of memory. These are all symptoms of a problem called “DGM,” Data-is-Greater-than-Memory. The capacity, availability, and crash recovery challenge is even greater when large data sets, and real-time analytics are involved.
Big Memory addresses VMware’s need for more memory with support for higher-density / lower-cost persistent memory that allows more memory to be configured in a single physical server. Memory Machine software then takes capacity to the next level with the ability to scale-out memory in a virtual server cluster to form massive memory lakes. Memory Machine protects all that data with memory data services including snapshot, replication and lightning-fast recovery.
