Exploiting Tier 0 and Storage Virtualization to Maximize Storage Performance
Session Code: 1737
Mandalay Bay, Reef A | Wed. 6/12 & Thur. 6/13 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM
Presenter: Tim Conley
ATS Group & Former IBM Systems Architect and Engineer
Tier 0 is a level of storage that's faster—though perhaps more expensive—than any other level in the storage hierarchy. But how do you justify its costs? By combining technologies such as Flash (TMS) and solid-state drives (SSD) with Storage Virtualization (SVC and V7000), and then applying application awareness or smarter data placement, companies can realize significant cost-saving benefits. This presentation will illustrate how using these performance accelerators with Storage Virtualization can eliminate the current Disk I/O choke points in your servers or applications.
What Attendees Will Learn:
Attendees will see how applications such as VDI, highly transactional databases and Private and Public Storage clouds can leverage these high-level technologies to increase performance, productivity, and ROI. Live examples and supporting charts will quantify the critical need to exploit these storage technologies.
