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.

Keys to Business Success with All Flash Storage

Published By: NetApp APAC     Published Date: Jul 08, 2019
All-flash storage is on a strong growth trajectory, but the industry is not swooning naively over the blazing fast I/O speeds. Most IT managers are talking a mature, step-by-step approach to all-flash adoption. Falling per-gigabyte prices are making the technology more commonplace. Solid state drives are no longer just for specialized, high-performing tasks. Before they leap, however, storage professionals want to understand the full business picture as they formulate a winning strategy for putting all-flash storage to use for more workloads. This paper offers insights for business success with all-flash storage based on IT Central Station reviews. Real users weigh in on what it takes to get the most out of the technology. It covers such aspects of flash storage as the need for simplicity and the importance of flexibility. The paper also looks at how to build a business case for all-flash and think through the implications of issues such as integration with existing infrastructure.

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?"
