real-time feedback to synch the entire environment. Software Defined
Storage for desktop virtualization and all applications is the future
and Yale is showing the way in the healthcare industry."
NexentaConnect provides a 38x physical SAN data retrieval reduction, a
2.5x SAN write I/O reduction and a 72 percent increase in VM density per
