Scaling the Data Center: a Fireside Chat
Listen to industry experts Philip Utschig and Nick Cavalancia discuss what to expect from flash and how to scale smart in your data center.WATCH NOW
Traditional scaling methods invariably cause more problems than they solve. Increasingly, neither scale out nor scale up storage is fit for modern enterprise. Here’s why.
Scale Up StorageAs 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.
Scale Out StorageTo 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™ SIMPLY A BETTER APPROACH
- 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 STORAGE PLATFORMS.
It’s time for a better approach. Violin delivers simple, instant non-disruptive growth for maximum flexibility and performance.
