The Kaminario K2: Transforming the Costs and Capabilities of Storage Performance

In this product profile, we’ll take a look at what we think is required to deliver a true enterprise-class storage foundation for improving application performance, and one vendor's distinctly different approach to delivering a high performance storage solution. That solution - the Kaminario K2 – delivers a compelling approach for those enterprises in need of faster storage for greater application performance.

Abstract: Taneja Group Multi-Client Study (MCS) on Storage Acceleration and Performance Technologies

Taneja Group’s latest multi-client sponsored research study addresses the young and rapidly evolving market for storage acceleration and performance solutions. This study provides vendor sponsors with key insights into the current uptake and usage of storage acceleration and performance technologies, along with user-perceived value of key features and capabilities. The study findings will help vendors understand how to overcome sales and deployment barriers, improve and sharpen the positioning of their products/solutions, and determine where they should invest going forward, based on the technologies and use cases that will be most important to buyers over the next 2-3 years.

QLogic FabricCache: Cost Effective And Non-Disruptively Accelerating Customers' Key Virtualized...

Storage has long been the tail on the proverbial dog in virtualized environments. The random I/O streams generated by multiple consolidated VMs creates an “I/O blender” effect, which overwhelms traditional array-based architectures and compromises application performance. As many customers have learned the hard way, doing storage right in the virtual infrastructure required a fresh and innovative approach.

These sentiments were echoed in the findings of Taneja Group’s latest research study on storage acceleration and performance. More than half of the 280 buyers and practitioners we surveyed have an immediate need to accelerate one or more applications running in their virtual infrastructures. While three quarters of survey respondents are seriously considering deploying a storage acceleration solution, only a handful are willing to give up or compromise their existing storage capabilities in the process. Customers need better performance, but in most cases can neither afford nor stomach a wholesale upgrade or replacement of their storage infrastructure to achieve it.

Fortunately for performance-challenged, mid-sized and enterprise customers, there is a better alternative. QLogic’s FabricCache QLE10000 is a server-side, SAN caching solution, which is designed to accelerate multi-server virtualized and clustered applications. Based on QLogic’s innovative Mt. Rainier technology, the QLE10000is the industry’s first caching SAN adapter offering that enables the cache from individual servers to be pooled and shared across multiple physical servers. This breakthrough functionality is delivered in the form of a combined Fibre Channel and caching host bus adapter (HBA), which plugs into existing HBA slots and is transparent to hypervisors, operating systems, and applications. QLogic’s FabricCache QLE10000 adapter cost effectively boosts performance of critical applications, while enabling customers to preserve their existing storage investments.

Enterprise Application Optimization Using Server-Based Storage Accelerators

The evolution of our Southern California freeway system strangely resembles that of the data center. Original freeway designs supported traffic for fewer, smaller vehicles traveling at slower speeds. Expansion accommodated the growing number of bigger, faster cars, but space isn’t limitless, and horrendous traffic jams often cripple the system.
