Flash performance on VDI, SQL Server, big data revealed

95% of other media companies’ “expert flash guides” that comes across your inbox in 2017 will simply tell you flash boosts performance.

No kidding.

What they almost never tell you is, void of all hyperbole, what exactly happens after leaving an all-disk environment? How exactly flash manipulates an organization’s data reduction efforts (hint: sometimes it doesn’t)? What exactly happens to an organization’s specific workloads after adopting flash?

This report does all that, and more.

Download now if you’re tired of being told how flash is universally great, when what you really need to know is exact data and outcomes gathered from over 1000 real users eager to share exactly what happened after implementing flash.

  • VDI on SSD: How to scale, consolidate virtual desktops

    Five years ago when infrastructure admins put virtual desktop workloads on the same storage hardware as other workloads, VDI performance flopped—and storage was to blame for its failures. Why?

    Nonlinearity: if you had 1,000 desktops but wanted to scale to 2,000, you needed twice as much infrastructure. User growth demanded a new approach to storage expansion and performance, which is where flash entered.

    By tuning into this Geekout 365 webcast, you’ll see Gabe Knuth sitting down with Joel McKelvey, Director of Infrastructure Solutions at Pure Storage, to discuss the evolution of storage for VDI, and how flash systems can consolidate these workloads.

    Watch now as Joel also runs down the technical features of Pure’s flash systems, and for which workloads they are best suited. 

  • SSD study: 99.999% availability at the core of reputational legacy

    When an organization is built on a legacy of exceptional customer service, failure to meet and exceed those expectations isn’t an option—and at the core of these requirements resides the resiliency, availability, and rapid response times your storage architecture must provide.

    Tune into this study to learn how RC Willey, Utah-based home furnishings retailer, used all-flash arrays to provide 10x better responsiveness on queries of customer data, ensure 99.9999% availability, and significantly lower data center costs by reducing their footprint from 3 full cabinets to one half-full.
