Imagine the benefits that a VDI environment could realize during a boot storm. All the VMs are based on the same template, and therefore they all have the same set of files during initial boot. Normally, 100 VMs all booting at the same time would require a significant number of HDDs, but with this hyperconverged infrastructure platform, the first VM to boot reads the block off the HDD, which promotes that block into cache. Now the next 99 VMs can all access that same block from cache. That’s a 100:1 IOPS reduction on the IOPS-bound disks.

According to recent ESG research, 70% of IT respondents indicated they plan to invest in HCI over the next 24 months. IT planners are increasingly turning toward HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions to simplify and speed up infrastructure deployments, ease day-to-day operational management, reduce costs, and increase IT speed and agility. HCI consists of a nodal-based architecture whereby all the required virtualized compute, storage, and networking assets are self-contained inside individual nodes. These nodes are, in effect, discrete virtualized computing resources “in a box.” However, they are typically grouped together to provide resiliency, high performance, and flexible resource pooling. And since HCI appliances can scale out to large configurations over time, these systems can provide businesses with investment protection and a simpler, more agile, and cost-effective way to deploy virtualized computing infrastructure.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems. In IDC's view, flash is an absolute requirement for performance reasons in any 3rd Platform computing environment. While most understand the need for flash performance, there is still a subset that does not view the broader use of flash in the enterprise as cost effective

Are solid-state arrays (SSAs) worth the extra cost? This independent survey of SSA users found that their deployments provided a positive ROI after only 5.4 months, significantly faster than hard-disk drive (HDD) storage systems. Discover why Gartner strongly advises that SSAs be considered whenever HDD-based storage systems need to be replaced. Read the report: Solid-State Array TCO Reality Check.

The technical and financial advantages of solid state drives are driving a rapid transition from hard disk-drive (HDD) and hybrid-flash array (HFA) storage systems to all-flash arrays (AFAs). The white paper identifies some of the key considerations for evaluating all-flash storage infrastructure for three major uses cases: standalone applications, virtualized applications, and next-generation cloud services.

Alors que le stockage flash se généralise dans le monde de l'informatique, les entreprises commencent à mieux comprendre non seulement ses atouts en termes de performances, mais également les avantages économiques secondaires de son déploiement à grande échelle. La combinaison des avantages des baies 100 % flash - latence réduite, débit plus élevé et bande passante plus large, densités de stockage plus élevées, consommation énergétique et encombrement considérablement réduits, meilleure exploitation des UC, réduction du nombre de serveurs nécessaires et, en conséquence, coûts de licences amoindris et fiabilité matérielle accrue – en a fait une option économiquement attrayante comparée aux architectures de stockage d'ancienne génération, mises au point à l’origine pour les disques durs (HDD). Alors que les baies flash hybrides (HFA) se développent à un rythme exponentiel et que le taux d’utilisation de baies 100 % HDD chute vertigineusement, les AFA enregistrent une progression parmi le

Flash-Storage dringt immer mehr in die Mainstream-Datenverarbeitung vor. Dadurch verstehen die Unternehmen zunehmend nicht nur die Performance-Vorteile, sondern auch die sekundären wirtschaftlichen Vorteile, die mit einer Flash-Implementierung im großen Maßstab verbunden sind. Dank der Kombination all dieser Vorteile – geringere Latenzen, höherer Durchsatz und größere Bandbreite, höhere Storage-Dichten, deutlich geringerer Energie- und Platzbedarf, höhere CPU-Auslastung, geringerer Bedarf an Servern und damit verbunden geringere Softwarelizenzgebühren, geringere Administrationskosten und eine größere Zuverlässigkeit auf Einheitenebene – erweist sich die Verwendung von AFAs als eine wirtschaftlich überzeugende Alternative zu den herkömmlichen Storage -Architekturen, die ursprünglich für Festplattenlaufwerke (HDDs) konzipiert waren. Während die Wachstumsraten für Hybrid-Flash-Arrays (HFAs) und für ausschließlich in Verbindung mit HDDs verwendete Arrays steil nach unten gehen, gehören die

As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.

Today’s IT professionals are well aware that users expect fast, reliable access to ever-growing amounts of data – from web content, to videos, to business intelligence data and more. Meeting the challenges of this exponential growth is nearly impossible with existing, spinning media storage technology. Hard disk drives (HDDs) have been the standard in data storage for decades, but they can no longer satisfy. They create bottlenecks in data access, they fail to meet the growing demands of higher user expectations, and they consume too much power. Download to learn how to solve this issue.

As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two. Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) — it is flash-driven architectures.
