How can predictive storage caching close the performance gap?

Closing the Performance Gap with Predictive Storage Caching


Moore’s law (named after the co-founder of Intel) predicts that CPU processing power doubles every 1-2 years. This has proven to be true, however storage capabilities have not grown as fast. With speeds stuck at about 200 IOPS per disk, a performance gap has grown between what servers could do and what they can do.

This white paper helps outline more clearly how this gap was created, and what we can do to remediate the issue by:

  • “striping” data by storing it across multiple disks
  • “Short stroking” by storing data only in the outer sectors of the disk
  • Increasing server memory to increase speeds

And more. Then, learn how you can address the issue using predictive storage caching to build cost-effective hybrid storage solutions.
