Benefits and Best Practices For Deploying SSDS In An OLTP Environment Using Dell Equallogic PS Series

Cover
Using Solid State Disks (SSDs) in enterprise storage arrays is one of today's hottest storage trends. Mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs) with a cache memory-based front-end in the disk array controller have been the dominant I/O architecture for high-end application data storage until now. However, with increasing capacities and falling prices of memory chips, and the growing number of performance-hungry applications, many storage vendors have introduced SSDs in their disk arrays to improve application performance. Moreover, since SSDs can consume significantly less power than HDDs, they also help reduce energy consumption in power-hungry data centers.

This whitepaper discusses the best practices for deploying SSDs in an OLTP environment using Dell EqualLogic PS Series arrays.
