When discussing or comparing storage architectures IOPS, latency and throughput are the key metrics of differentiation. Unfortunately the IOPS metric has become to go-to-metric for distinctiveness for arrays with its peers. And to be honest it's an addictive number, it shows progression of the industry. Where we use to be super excited with a system that does 3000 IOPS back in the 90's, we now see new SSD devices providing us with 250,000 IOPS today.

There is a distinction between users and customers. Customers are the ones responsible for purchasing a product while the users are the ones who, not surprisingly, use it. In the consumer software world these roles often overlap, while in enterprise software they are often distinct.

For the better part of the past decade, the primary focus of IT has been on maximizing uptime. Building an infrastructure that is resilient enough to tolerate hardware failures, software faults, and/or scheduled maintenance was once a monumental challenge.

For businesses running SQL Server 2005, time is running out – Microsoft will no longer support SQL Server 2005 as of April 12, 2016. Still, many organizations have delayed upgrades to avoid disruptions to their business – IDC estimated there were 800,000 servers running SQL Server 2005 a few months ago.

There has never been a more exciting time to be in storage. With new applications and new media all causing data volumes to grow astronomically, storage has never been more strategic.

But storage has also never been more confusing.

Traditional SAN/NAS architectures just cannot keep up with changing trends. Virtualization, for example, literally breaks conventional storage, resulting in poor application performance and exorbitant costs.

Everyone talks about "all-flash", but is it really what we need?

No doubt "All-flash" provides high IOPS and fast storage, but is it worth the cost?

PernixData is not a storage reseller, but a software company that lets you, completely free of charge, use 128 GB of RAM in your VMware setup for ultra-fast read acceleration. The solution is called FVP® Freedom.

For the last 3 months my main focus within PernixData has been (and still is) the PernixCloud program. In short PernixData Cloud is the next logical progression of PernixData Architect and provides visibility into and analytics of virtual data centers, it’s infrastructure, and it’s applications. By providing facts on the various elements of the virtual infrastructure, architects and administrators can design their environment in a data-driven way.
