In this final piece on server virtualization and SSD, Storage Switzerland discusses the power of performance, specifically, the dramatic impact that latent-free storage can make on the virtual environment. Read on to find out more!
This Enterprise Strategy Group whitepaper reviews HP 3PAR Storage Adaptive Optimization software -- granular, automated, and policy-based service-level optimization -- and support of solid-state drives (SSDs). Learn how this combination is a thoughtful approach that can deliver significant value.
In this Research Report, Clabby Analytics takes a closer look at IBM’s Flex System converged architecture. The new Flex System’s advanced blade offering shines compared to its closest rival: traditional blade architecture. Flex System offers superior manageability, faster communications, more storage capacity (using up to eight internal solid state drives [SSDs] per compute node) and better storage management — as well as broader/better physical/virtual system management — than all of today’s leading blade competitors.
NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate.
This White Paper provides information on how Flash is now rapidly and violently disrupting the disk status quo, and not just, or even mainly, because it is fast. Yes, the early integration of SSDs into a storage strategy was all about accelerating specific workloads, followed by getting a better overall balance of price/performance in external storage arrays.
