Reference Architecture: Scalable SSD Storage for Building a High Performance ESX Cluster
A High Performance Virtualization Cluster (HPVC) can reduce the effort required to deliver efficient applications on distributed resources, and increase the performance delivered to those apps –if maintained properly.
Storage is the most common bottleneck preventing virtualization clusters from supporting the required load.
5 factors will determine whether storage will be the bottleneck in an HPVC – here are 2: high IOPS, high throughput and low latency; and support for highly parallel operations. Read this white paper to discover the 3 other factors, as well as reference architectures to support both medium and high/extreme workloads.
