HiveIO Launches Hive Fabric 7.3 to Deliver Data Center Intelligence without Infrastructure Overhaul

New operational capabilities include graphics acceleration, NVMe
caching, and configurable in-memory storage to deliver an intelligent
virtualization solution

HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#DataCenterManagementlt;/agt;–HiveIO,
, a company that transforms commodity data center equipment into
an intelligent virtualization platform, today released version 7.3 of
Hive Fabric™, an Artificial Intelligence-ready fabric solution that
enables organizations to deploy virtualization technology without the
need for vendor complexity or specialists. The latest software release
provides Hive Fabric users with increased operational capabilities to
further reduce the time needed to support a virtualization environment
while also maximizing the performance, capacity, and spend on existing

“Hive Fabric was developed with IT professionals in mind, helping them
withstand common industry pain points like flexibility and usability,”
said Dan Newton, CEO of HiveIO. “The solution has helped IT in a variety
of industries exceed their business goals by creating a virtualization
solution that works with users, not against them. We’re continuing to
grow with a user-first mindset, and the launch of 7.3 delivers the new
capabilities based directly on feedback and needs of current Hive Fabric

Hive Fabric combines KVM hypervisor, software-defined storage (SDS) and
networking, and virtual desktop management, into an all-in-one
virtualization solution, eliminating the need for a multi-vendor,
multi-contract approach. The new features within the 7.3 solution

  • Graphics Acceleration: The rise in augmented and virtual
    reality has increased the need for graphics acceleration. To
    seamlessly improve the performance of virtual machines (VMs),
    administrators can now install graphics processing units (GPUs) inside
    of Hive Fabric-enabled servers and then simply turn the acceleration
    on or off with a single click. Graphics acceleration is available via
    GPU Sharing or GPU Passthrough and supports NVIDIA, ATI, and Intel.
  • Software-Defined Networking (SDN): Flexible networking is key
    to delivering a fully virtualized data center. With ethernet
    consolidating and the speed increasing, a need for IT Administrators
    to separate traffic and guarantee bandwidth for desktops and
    applications is becoming a necessity. Administrators can now add
    multiple physical and virtual SDNs giving them the flexibility to fit
    with any network architecture.
  • Configurable In-Memory Storage: Balancing business requirements
    and the cost of infrastructure is challenging for any IT team. Memory
    is the most scarce, highest-cost resource in the data center and a key
    to meeting competing business objectives. The SDS capability extends
    to managing server memory, allowing it to be allocated to either
    storage or memory for virtual machines, with differing allocations
    possible on every server.
  • Hive Sense: The comprehensive simplicity of setting up and
    running Hive Fabric extends to HiveIO Support. Introduced in 7.3, Hive
    Sense will allow HiveIO to proactively support customers by sending
    logs, metrics, and configuration information back to the company. This
    reduces the time needed to collect logs or understand how the
    infrastructure is deployed, so support engineers can resolve issues
    faster and remove the burden from your IT administrators.

Unlike legacy platforms that require specialists to operate overly
complicated systems, Hive Fabric utilizes an Intelligent Message Bus and
intuitive user interface (UI) to show an all-encompassing view of a data
center and its connected components in real time. This makes it easy for
administrators to find and act upon vital information and reduce

“The Hive Fabric UI, coupled with the easy-to-use enhancements in 7.3,
empowers administrators of all skill levels to manage the entire data
center,” said Toby Coleridge, Vice President of Product at HiveIO.
“Organizations can reallocate their highly-skilled specialists to other
areas of the business to drive innovation rather than be bogged down
with daily administrative tasks.”
