IT Central Station Whitepaper Flash Array Storage: Best Practices, Tips, and Advice from Real Users

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Jan 11, 2016
The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.

NetApp EF550 All-Flash Array Workload Characterization

Published By: NetApp     Published Date: Feb 19, 2015
The NetApp EF550 all-flash array provides a robust platform for delivering exceptional performance to mission-critical applications. The EF550 flash array leverages the latest in solid-state disk technologies along with a strong heritage of handling diverse workloads and providing superior business value through the acceleration of latency-sensitive and high-I/O applications. This technical report provides an overview of workload characterizations performed on NetApp EF-series all-flash arrays across a wide variety of I/O types - with best practices and observations based on extensive test data. Characterizations include IOPS, throughput, and latency under varying block loads and RAID levels, SSD rebuild times, EF540 and EF550 performance comparison, and usable capacity sizing guidelines for various protection levels. If you are considering deploying an EF-series flash storage array in your environment, this is an essential technical resource to insure proper configuration and maxim

NetApp Hybrid Array with Flash Pool Technology

Published By: NetApp     Published Date: Feb 19, 2015
NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate. In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario. In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.

SATA vs. PCIe Solid-State Storage Solutions for MySQL Environments

Published By: HGST     Published Date: Feb 05, 2015
Database users are increasingly interested in using Flash-based solid-state drives (SSDs) to speed up application performance. For many database administrators (DBAs), increased database performance directly impacts their user experience and bottom lines. Accelerating a single MySQL instance may allow DBAs to avoid painful sharding exercises, with all their attendant administration, application changes, and high capital and ongoing costs. With the wide range of SSDs available today, choosing any one can be difficult. This paper aims to answer the question, “Is it better to use slower SATA SSDs in RAID or a faster PCIe SSD to scale up MySQL database performance?"

Flash Storage: Wide-Ranging Business Objectives Demand a Wide Range of Flash Solutions

Published By: NetApp     Published Date: Dec 09, 2014
This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.

Clabby:A Comparison of IBM’s Flex Sys Environments to Traditional Blade Architectures

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jan 09, 2014
In this Research Report, Clabby Analytics takes a closer look at IBM’s Flex System converged architecture. The new Flex System’s advanced blade offering shines compared to its closest rival: traditional blade architecture. Flex System offers superior manageability, faster communications, more storage capacity (using up to eight internal solid state drives [SSDs] per compute node) and better storage management — as well as broader/better physical/virtual system management — than all of today’s leading blade competitors.

HP 3PAR Storage: Optimizing I/O Service Levels

Published By: HP and Intel® Xeon® processors     Published Date: Aug 01, 2012
It is often said that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. The corollary is also true-adding an ostensibly strong link to a weak chain doesn't necessarily deliver much tensile value. Yet, from all the rhetoric and hype, you might be forgiven for thinking that solid-state storage will single-handedly strengthen every weak storage chain, wherever the solid-state storage is and however it is used. Specification-based strength added to a weak chain will soon be exposed in the real world, whether it's a tug-of-war team or a storage system.
