IT’S TIME TO BE SMART ABOUT STORAGE CAPACITY.
Traditional scaling methods invariably cause more problems than they solve. Increasingly, neither scaling up or out is fit for modern enterprise. Here’s why.
As the amount of data in your enterprise grows, you are compelled to add more drives to create more capacity, otherwise known as scaling up. Unfortunately, this taxes your processing power, limiting performance. The more you scale up the more response times increase, which is untenable to your enterprise.
To overcome these performance limitations, a vendor will suggest scaling out. This solution means adding controllers with drives, essentially doubling down in your server room. Performance issues can be addressed this way, but only if they match existing solutions, severely limiting your options. Worse yet, scaling out exposes your data center to a potentially catastrophic loss of data availability, which is even more untenable.
SCALE SMART™ A BETTER APPROACH WITH VIOLIN
- Instantaneous, non-disruptive capacity expansion
- Low-risk entry to high-performance All-Flash Arrays
- Leverage the performance of flash for an individual application, then expand to support mixed, multiple workloads on a single array
- Control CAPEX by aligning expenditures to value as it is received
SCALE SMART WITH VIOLIN FSP.
It’s time for a better approach. Violin FSP delivers simple, instant non-disruptive growth for maximum flexibility and performance. It’s called Scale Smart.
There is a truly unique and modern scaling solution. Rather than scaling up or out, the Violin FSP simultaneously employs multiple methods, delivering simple, instantaneous and non-disruptive growth for maximum flexibility, performance and ease of use. All this, and it’s highly cost effective…
