Splunk® has become a mission critical application. Thousands of organizations are gaining insight from their machine data and transaction logs using Splunk, and many more are planning to deploy Splunk. No matter what stage you’re in, having guidelines to follow can help improve the Splunk experience. Since a mission critical data application deserves a mission critical data platform, Pure Storage® built the solution on the Pure FlashStack™ converged infrastructure solution. FlashStack is a joint offering from Cisco® and Pure Storage. This paper is intended to provide a framework for designing and sizing a high-performance, scalable, and resilient Splunk platform. Pure Storage is a leading all-flash array provider focused on reducing storage complexity while improving Splunk performance, resiliency, and efficiency. To assure that your Splunk platform is sized appropriately, Pure Storage tested Splunk Enterprise on Pure’s FlashStack platform. The top takeaways from these efforts are tha
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.

The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
The HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-flash Storage can improve IOPS and latency results dramatically, increase the overall performance of a high workload environment, and lower administrative management work. The costs and benefits for a composite organization for 20 TB of 3PAR All-flash storage,
based on customer interviews, are:
? Investment costs: $130,722.
? Benefits: $1,213,601.
? Average cost/GB usable (street price) for all-flash storage (included 4:1 compaction and 25% overhead): $2.20

Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.
In midsize and large organizations, critical business processing continues to depend on relational databases including Microsoft® SQL Server. While new tools like Hadoop help businesses analyze oceans of Big Data, conventional relational-database management systems (RDBMS) remain the backbone for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytic processing (OLAP), and mixed OLTP/OLAP workloads.
What if you could reduce the cost of running Oracle databases and improve database performance at the same time? What would it mean to your enterprise and your IT operations?
Oracle databases play a critical role in many enterprises. They’re the engines that drive critical online transaction (OLTP) and online analytical (OLAP) processing applications, the lifeblood of the business. These databases also create a unique challenge for IT leaders charged with improving productivity and driving new revenue opportunities while simultaneously reducing costs.
Within the next 12 months, solid-state arrays will improve in performance by a factor of 10, and double in density and cost-effectiveness, therefore changing the dynamics of the storage market. This Magic Quadrant will help IT leaders better understand SSA vendors' positioning in the market.

Network performance management tools can drive operational efficiency and improve network
uptime, but many network managers haven’t adopted such tools. The potential benefits of a
performance management tool are substantial, but network managers must make a business
case for such investment. This white paper reveals why network operations teams should invest
in network performance management solutions, and how they can justify to IT management and
CIOs that the tool will deliver a substantial return on investment, along with improving IT’s ability to
support business goals.
