Improving database performance is top of mind for many IT professionals. Their production databases in many ways are the lifeblood of the organization, supporting the transactions, applications, operations, business intelligence, and analytics that make the business work.
This book examines the market trends that are driving the ever demanding business requirement for better database performance, technical factors that affect database performance tuning, different SQL Server and Oracle Database design considerations, how database storage technologies and innovations can help drive business value, and key performance optimization capabilities to look for in a storage solution.
The choice between buying a hybrid flash and all-flash array (AFA) usually comes down to whether the all-flash system gives enough of a performance bump to justify the extra cost. This e-guide from searchSolidStateStorage.com examines this claim and provides readers with insight into which option may be the best route for their business.
Judging by the recent flood of flash-only storage launches, you can expect to see the primary storage hybrid array on the endangered species list rather soon. Flash only platforms are replacing HDDs – and quite frankly, it’s only a matter of time before all HDDs are gone. In this expert guide, discover and prepare for the future of storage. Not only will you learn how to shift your storage infrastructure to fit all-flash arrays, but also find a new home for HDDs in cold storage, backup, and archive.
Getting to all flash is one of the most important strategic initiatives that your organization will take in the next few years. This eBook outlines concrete steps that you can take that will move you closer to your goal of all flash in a cost-effective and non-disruptive way.
By following these recommendations, your organization can avoid the missteps that others are making, for example, ripping out existing storage before you have realized the full return on your investment or introducing storage siloes that increase complexity. Achieving the all flash data center is like climbing a mountain: it takes planning, organization and hard work— but it doesn’t have to be painful. If you’re ready to set out for the summit, keep reading.
The storage vendor landscape is rapidly changing as established vendors reorganize and emerging storage vendors grow their market credibility. We outline vendor product and marketing strategies, their strengths and weaknesses, and their ability to meet the expectations of I&O leads for GPDAs.
Business users expect immediate access to data, all the time and without interruption. But reality does not always meet expectations. IT leaders must constantly perform intricate forensic work to unravel the maze of issues that impact data delivery to applications. This performance gap between the data and the application creates a bottleneck that impacts productivity and ultimately damages a business’ ability to operate effectively. We term this the “app-data gap.”
In an innovation-powered economy, ideas need to travel at the speed of thought. Yet even as our ability to communicate across companies and time zones grows rapidly, people remain frustrated by downtime and unanticipated delays across the increasingly complex grid of cloud-based infrastructure, data networks, storage systems, and servers that power our work.
In the enterprise IT landscape, storage always has been a thorny issue for IT leaders and administrators. Without fundamental changes, storage problems will only get worse, as business moves further into the world of digital everything. That's because storage demands are exploding.
