The I/O Performance Gap and How To Fix It
Virtualization and advancements in compute-intensive business applications are exposing a critical performance gap between enterprise servers and storage systems.
Data requirements and CPU processing power have grown rapidly over recent years, but the performance of storage has not kept pace. This gap between storage and servers causes various performance issues, including I/O bottlenecks.
Check out this Q&A with IDC's Solid State Storage Research Director Jeff Janukowicz and Vice President for IDC's Enterprise Platform Group Matt Eastwood to get insight on important questions such as:
- How are companies addressing the I/O performance gap problem?
- What are the advantages/limitations of each method?
- What are the ways to move beyond the limitations of current solutions while keeping current implementations in operation?
- And more
