Your IT team is struggling with aging, inflexible, and complex infrastructure and processes that make it difficult to support new business needs or take advantage of cloud. Learn how you can transform your data infrastructure using flash storage to meet service level performance and availability, enabling your team to focus on the delivery of new applications and services.
This document provides an overview of EMC’s XtremIO architecture as it compares to SolidFire. Not intended to be exhaustive, this overview covers select elements where the solutions differ and presents their impact to overall suitability for data center needs.
Quality of service (QoS) is a critical enabling technology for enterprises and service providers wanting to deliver consistent primary storage performance to business-critical applications in a multi-tenant or enterprise infrastructure. The type of applications that require primary storage services typically demand greater levels of performance than what is readily available from traditional storage infrastructures today. However, simply providing raw performance is often not the only objective in these use cases. For a broad range of business-critical applications, consistent and predictable performance are the more important metrics. Unfortunately, neither is easily achievable within traditional storage arrays.

Is there that much of a future for magnetic spinning disk? Even if manufacturers could move to 30,000 rpm disks with better areal density, the constraints in the engineering and physical capabilities of magnetic disks will still put them orders of magnitude behind flash-based systems in overall performance terms.
