All SSD-enabled storage devices are fast. Real fast. But are they as fast as advertised? Not likely. Not in a live environment.
But, they're probably fast enough ... or are they?
Years after that, I joined BWG Strategy’s Tech Sector Advisory Board and had the opportunity to be a panelist on many fascinating topics. I began to see very different aspects of my sector from a variety of industry giants and their perspective. I gained insights that I hadn’t had previously and, armed with it, knew I was more valuable to our customers.
I saw that the hybrid array market was here, essentially removing the discussion about 15K drives and striping for performance. Right on its heels, the AFA market took hold and, as prices dropped, made hybrid arrays almost superfluous. Meanwhile, SSD-enabled hyperconverged infrastructure appliance were replacing their predecessors and eating into the server market. Again, very fast. And so it goes -- a rapidly changing market that gets faster and faster.
But not as fast as the sales rep said it would be. Certainly not for the Windows servers. Why is this?
They call it, the “I/O blender’ effect.
But it’s also part of the problem.
If you’d like to check it out yourself, Condusiv allows you to try it for free.
V-locity offers other tangible benefits that you’ve probably already deduced. If you can get more performance out of each Windows VM, you don’t have to allocate as many resources. This gives you better density on your host servers, But more about that later.
