Download this white paper and discover how Nimble Storage, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, achieves six nines measured availability using predictive analytics and data science as the core architecture of every system. Gavin suggest using the next one.
The big breakthrough is coming from one of the leading innovators in the all-flash market, Pure Storage. Pure has scaled its architecture to make all of its key enterprise-class features available in an entry-level array that “democratizes” all-flash storage by making it affordable to just about any business. The new product is called the Pure FlashArray//m10.
As enterprises undergo digital transformation, storage infrastructure modernization is a key focus. With new storage technologies and architectures available, CIOs have more opportunity than ever to match storage platforms with workload requirements and consolidate workloads where appropriate. This white paper focuses on evolving storage requirements in the midrange market, as enterprises look to improve efficiencies in how they handle enterprise workloads. It also discusses key midrange enterprise storage capabilities CIOs should consider as they modernize infrastructure.
As IT demands mount, IT organizations simply no longer have the luxury of spending resources to verify every vendor promise. Systems just need to work, while delivering a future free from costly data migrations. As a response, IT vendors have begun to offer guarantees in performance, guarantees in data reduction rates, guarantees in data deduplication, or free upgrades. These programs, however, are often limited to a single storage or data protection product offering, typically with all-flash technology. Dell EMC solutions, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor goes one step further with a program that delivers a future-proof infrastructure promise that extends to its larger storage, hyperconverged, and data protection portfolio and provides support across both generational and architectural transitions.
It is now apparent that three specific technology advancements—non-volatile memory express (NVMe), NVMe over fabrics (NVMe-oF), and storage-class memory (SCM)—are transformative and will end up guiding the future of high-end data storage. Each of those technologies reduce I/O latency significantly.
However, organizations working to transform their data centers shouldn’t regard performance as the only end goal. Great performance is important because it increases an array’s ability to handle any workload intelligently, scale to meet unpredictable demand, and operate cost efficiently. The Dell EMC PowerMax powered by Intel® Xeon® processor is an impressive example of this type of modern storage architecture. It has been designed deliberately to maximize the speed of NVMe and by extension, offer transformational efficiency benefits and business value.
