    • Hyper-Convergence Delivers Better Mission-Critical Performance

      Enterprises are usually reluctant to commit their most critical applications to a new piece of infrastructure. Most begin the virtualization journey with test and development servers. Later, critical databases are virtualized. On the other hand, when you deploy a hyper-converged solution, like SimpliVity’s OmniStack, the greatest benefit comes from having everything on the platform. See More

    • 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.

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.
