Based on current practices in the datacenter and key emerging technologies, now is the time to revisit the debate on performance in NAS-backed virtual environments. We’ll cover recommended practices and configuration tips, and show how state-of-the-art technology changes the cost/performance dynamic for datacenter operations.
•Learn recommended practices and configuration tips to improve application performance and scalability of NAS-backed virtual environments.
•Assess ways to optimize the host, network, and storage tiers including jumbo frames and link aggregation performance, congestion control and prioritization mechanisms, and common configuration pitfalls.
•Evaluate four trending technologies, including 10Gb Ethernet, SR-IOV, VMDq, and edge caching. Evaluate each along the dimensions of performance (throughput, latency) and ease of use, with a cost/benefit summary to illustrate which offers the greatest performance gain for the dollar.
