Making Sense of NVMe Flash and Policy-based QoS in SDS

Presented by

Justin Wheeler, Storage Architect, Intel Data Center NVM Solutions, Mike Beevor, Sr. Technical Marketing Engineer, Pivot3

About this talk

Much is being written about how advances in flash, including NVMe, may impact an organization’s storage strategies. In addition, technologies such as storage Quality of Service (QoS) are promising an easier way to provision performance. Not all implementations of these technologies are the same, so how do you determine what best fits your specific applications and business needs? In this session, experts from Intel and Pivot3 discuss how combining NVMe flash and advanced, policy-based QoS enables organizations to confidently consolidate multiple mixed application workloads, including performance- and latency-sensitive ones, on a hyperconverged platform using SDS. We’ll discuss the impact of this new solution and what it means to applications, datacenter design and operations.
