This Lab Validation Report documents the results of recent hands-on testing of Dell EMC Isilon All-Flash storage. Testing focused on the platform’s performance and scalability and how it enables organizations to support more applications and workloads with flash based on their ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data.
FlashBlade fabric modules implement a unified network that connects all blades to each other and to the data center network. With full connectivity, all blades can serve as client connection endpoints, as authorities that process client requests, and as storage managers that transfer data to and from flash and NVRAM.
Pure Storage has significant expertise creating scalable, enterprise-class, flash-optimized storage platforms, and with FlashBlade, Pure Storage has crafted a turnkey, purpose-built platform that is well suited to cost effectively handle the performance and capacity requirements of genomics workflows. Pure Storage has differentiated itself from more established enterprise storage providers by delivering an industry-leading customer experience, as shown by its extremely high NPS, indicating it knows how to meet and is committed to meeting customer requirements. Whether genomics practitioners plan an on-premises deployment or a cloud-based deployment for their genomics workflows, they should consider the performance, cost, and patient care advantages of the Pure Storage FlashBlade when choosing a platform, particularly if they plan to retain data for a long time and use it frequently.
The tremendous growth of unstructured data is creating huge opportunities for organizations. But it is also creating significant challenges for the storage infrastructure. Many application environments that have the potential to maximize unstructured data have been restricted by the limitations of legacy storage systems. For the past several years—at least—users have expressed a need for storage solutions that can deliver extreme performance along with simple manageability, density, high availability and cost efficiency.
As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two.
Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) —
it is flash-driven architectures.
There’s no question about it: purpose-built all-flash storage is an exceptional catalyst for improving data center operations and supporting the transition to the cloud operating model. AFAs’ highly strategic role in both IT and business underscores the need to move storage purchase discussions and decisions beyond the storage team. IT leaders who want to see their organizations reap AFAs’ benefits—performance improvement, productivity gains, and cost savings, among others—should actively define their AFA strategies and oversee storage-related decision making, thus treating storage like the newly strategic asset it has become.

Over time, hybrid cloud will increasingly become the mainstream deployment model for IT infrastructure. Flash storage brings with it many benefits necessary in hybrid cloud environments, and IDC already views it as a requirement for enterprise workloads that have any performance sensitivity. This IDC white paper discusses the state of enterprise storage with respect to the evolving cloud storage market, explains why flash storage is needed in these environments, and then discusses what Pure Storage, a leading all-flash array vendor, brings to the table in this area. The document concludes with a short service provider case study.
