All Flash Array

As the world steams along its path toward a digital economy and businesses transition from data-dependent to data-driven, the demands placed on storage performance continue to escalate. With performance increasing at less than one-third the rate of capacity, disk technology, the foundation of non-human memory and the workhorse of the datacentre, seems to be headed out to a much-deserved pasture.

Enter flash, not a new technology by any means, but a relatively new player in the enterprise storage world. The use of hybrid (disk/flash) arrays has grown in the datacentre over the past several years, with their effectiveness in resolving specific performance issues paving the way for the all-flash array. The AFA has been hyped as the future of enterprise storage, but before you go out and scrap your disk arrays for an all-flash solution, a few important considerations and some planning can help you maximize your storage investment over the longer term.

As every IT professional will attest to, the central problem with storage is that the technology has kept up with neither client-side improvements nor the data explosion, creating what is essentially a supply and demand imbalance – more demand for more data coupled with stagnated delivery capabilities. The result is latency, bottlenecks, boot storms and, ultimately, lowered productivity. Until recently the answer to storage issues was to throw more disks at the problem (more disks that are still focused on capacity vs. performance).

Disk Performance Improvements Mostly

Limited to Capacity While there has been significant improvement in disk performance over the past several years (high-performance HDDs can offer as high as 210 IOPS) most of it has been in terms of capacity. All the disk space in the world, though, can’t remedy one fundamental limitation. To work, a disk must rotate and an arm must seek data, creating two unavoidable latency opportunities. The time required for actual data transfer will always be a fraction (a tiny fraction as it were) of the time required for any data operation.

Converged Infrastructure

You want to deploy applications faster. You want to deliver IT capacity to your business and services to your customers more quickly and easily. And you want a shorter time-to-value for IT investments. Virtualization is a well-understood technology that can help you increase agility, reduce costs, and simplify IT management. But virtualization is not ”just another technology.”

Virtualization impacts your entire organization, but it is complex to plan, deploy, and support.

Like many organizations, you may have attempted to overcome complexity through optimization and standardization. But there’s still much work to be done before reaching a state of extreme IT efficiency, in terms of resource utilization, management, and cost.

Taking efficiency to new heights,  Data Trust Co offers an innovative approach to virtualization. We use the HP Converged Systems for Virtualization. Fully integrated and workload-optimized, the HP Converged Systems for Virtualization is designed to help you harness the full potential of virtualization. The HP Converged Systems for Virtualization includes everything you need for a complete virtualization solution—servers, storage, networking, virtualization software, and technology services—making it easy to procure, manage, scale, and support

Networking

With the explosion of employees bringing their own devices to the office, you can see the benefits of implementing wireless and wired networks into your organization. To maintain productivity, it is important for employees to have access to the corporate network by giving them wireless access from their own devices.

Data Trust Co’s effectively maintains and monitors your network performance, checking for security breaches and poor data management practices for both physical and virtual environments.

Enable Employee Devices

Enabling workers to use their own mobile devices cause headaches for the IT department from a security point of view. The threat of malware getting onto the corporate network through a compromised device is a particular issue. If the mobile or tablet is owned by the business, security is easier to control. But, are employee-owned devices protected? The answer is no.

Reduce Performance Bottlenecks

Enterprise mobility to the convergence of voice, video, data to cloud computing adds to its already heavy workload with the added pressure of balancing cost and performance.  Providing a consistently excellent end-user experience on a myriad of devices, across many different networks, and on applications that are everywhere is the new performance paradigm. Do you know what traffic is running across your network? How do you improve the network performance?

Improve Policy and Best Practice

Data Trust Co will implement an automated network improvement process that addresses your highest business priorities and operational risks. Our analytics process will provide you with the information to manage and track improvements across hardware, software, security, and system log data.
