    • Scale-Out Storage Simplifies Planning

      “Never run out of disk space” became the storage administrator’s prime directive because of the big difference between storage and the rest of an organization’s IT infrastructure. When the network guys slightly underestimate the bandwidth they’ll need to provide, the network gets congested and applications slow down. Similarly, if the server crew ends up running a few too many VMs on too few hosts, the VMs run slower. See More

    • Virtual Server Performance – Why Solid-State Storage Isn’t Enough

      When a host server fails to deliver a sufficient level of IOPS, the solution is often to invest in solid-state storage. As many organizations have discovered, however, solid-state storage is a costly solution that may only temporarily correct the problem. Like any other storage technology, there is a limit to the number of IOPS that solid-state storage can deliver, and it is often only a matter of time before this limit is reached and the performance problems return.

    • Why HC Lets You Rest Easy with Better Resiliency and Data Protection

      The true value of data protection is in making systems available after a failure. Data protection starts with surviving failure of server hardware components, then extends to recovering damage to a VM and further to recovering from the loss of a whole data center. A data protection strategy should address multiple levels of failure. It should offer the business certainty of the time to recover from each level and certainty of the potential data loss for each failure. SimpliVity has built data protection into their product from the lowest level. See More
