How focusing on improving your storage infrastructure lowers latency

Today’s customer expects instantaneous results from your apps, and if you can’t produce that you’re going to lose money; it’s that simple.

Your storage latency could be the issue with delivering high-speed performance, and though technologies like flash storage certainly help, low latency can still be an issue even in the most modern storage systems

In this white paper, learn why your storage infrastructure is the key differentiator between high and low latency environments, as well as:

  • The 4 components of a storage ecosystem
  • Historic sources of latency
  • The impact of low latency storage I/O
  • And more

These are also closely related to: "Storage for High-performance Computing"

  • Guaranteeing QoS when storage I/O is shared

    In today’s connected world, where most employees are online 24/7, providing high availability to applications is the gold standard. Increasingly however, it’s become apparent that providing consistent, predictable quality of service (QoS) is more important.

    Unfortunately, traditional storage environments, while able to deliver the previously desired raw performance, can’t keep up with the QoS needs of today.

    Download this white paper to learn why guaranteed QoS should be built into the architecture of any next-generation storage system, the 6 components required to deliver such service, and more.

  • Is your storage ready to handle mixed digital data workloads?

    Modern data centers are pumping out varied data types at previously unheard of rates: storage for the digital workplace should scale to support billions of files and hundreds of petabytes. Is your storage network ready to handle these mixed workloads?
    In this resource, read about 2 companies who are already optimizing their storage systems to handle I/O-intensive software, as well as access to a library of webinars to help you build your digital-ready storage infrastructure, and more.
