Using Software-Defined Storage for your Applications: A Best Practices Guide

Presented by

Shawn Meyers, Principal Architect, House of Brick Technologies

About this talk

Software-defined storage is quickly becoming mainstream and not having to deal with all of the headaches of storage management can be a wonderful thing. Placing your tier 1 database workloads onto software-defined storage is possible, but it needs to be done correctly. Tier 1 database workloads are typically the most I/O intensive systems in an environment. Consequently, there are additional considerations that need to be taken into account in order to ensure performance and redundancy for these critical workloads. It doesn’t matter if your workload is SQL Server or Oracle, or if you are running Hyper-V or VMware, the concepts are the same. In this session, we will walk through SDS, and cover topics including: sizing your workload, validating performance characteristics, and following recommended best practices for placing your most important applications on SDS.
