IBM SAN Volume Controller and IBM FlashSystem 820: Best Practices and Performance Capabilities
Virtualizing storage has become a major trend among today’s organizations. However, existing storage infrastructure struggles to keep pace with the proliferation of data growth – creating costly I/O bottlenecks and decreases in performance. Deploying a cost effective solution to handle these workloads is imperative to stay competitive in the market.
This paper documents best practice configurations for integrating flash with a block storage virtualization appliance. Read on for details about the potential performance gains that such systems can provide and information about your options for cache usage and real-time compression.
