How to optimize storage for your SQL Server database infrastructure

Latency and IOPS are key performance indicators for databases – meaning, then, that storage hardware has a major impact on database performance.
This e-book guides you through the process of using flash storage to optimize your SQL Server database infrastructure.
Find out how a flash array can support all of the new SQL Server 2014 features, including:
• in‐memory databases
• BPE on SSDs
• Eight‐replica‐node AlwaysOn Availability Groups
• And more
Download your copy of this e-book today to discover the factors that impact the performance of your storage infrastructure so you can tune your databases for optimal performance.

  • With 400,000 IOPS available per TB, is now the time to adopt all-flash?

    Today’s SSDs are unquestionably faster than their HDD counterpart, with 1 TB delivering 400,000 IOPS vs. 150,000 for HDDs, but are they reliable enough to take over your entire data center’s storage?

    In this expert guide, learn about the costs, speed, and latency factors that are making an all-flash array your best bet for storage. Discover how the decline of RAID, growing application workloads, and more are pushing this trend forward.

  • Discover how to overcome RAID's dangerous archiving shortcomings

    Because archives have unique requirements—including a need for durable storage, in-place upgrades, and cost-effective capacity—that are poorly served by RAID arrays, RAID is dangerously unsuited for archive applications.

    Though a huge improvement over disk mirroring, RAID’s limited data protection, costly maintenance, and forklift upgrades are a present-day archiving nightmare

    You’ll learn how to overcome all of RAID’s dangerous shortcomings detailed here, by downloading this paper. Additionally, read on to be introduced to a more secure, durable alternative to the RAID model that includes advanced erasure codes, increased hardware redundancy, and more.
