Storage performance problems can be some of the most difficult challenges to address. Typically, organizations have turned to faster drives or upgraded arrays. However, server-side technologies represent a significant opportunity to improve performance.
Howard Marks will present how using compute server resources to accelerate storage access can bring greater levels of storage performance and flexibility to the modern data center while simultaneously helping to keep costs under control.
During this webinar, you will also learn about:
- Leveraging the low latency of server memory to improve performance
- Extending the life of your existing storage systems
- Allowing administrators to dynamically allocate storage performance to applications or VMs
- Taking advantage of the lower cost of server resources
