Next-generation Infrastructure Consolidation: Going Beyond Server Virtualization

Presented by

David Floyer, Chief Technology Officer, Wikibon; Sushant Rao, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software

About this talk

Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance. Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit. Now, companies are looking to take the next step to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reducing the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need. This is where DataCore’s Parallel I/O technology comes in. By processing I/Os in parallel leveraging multi-core, multi-processor systems, Parallel I/O delivers industry leading I/O response times as well as price/performance. The net benefit is that fewer storage nodes can provide much better performance, allowing you to reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
