Meet Workload Diversity with Server-Side Storage
The more the enterprise gravitates toward software-defined architectures, the more it is confronted with diverse data loads and increasingly complex application requirements. This is leading to a Catch-22 in that while overall hardware requirements are diminishing, the enterprise still needs to field a wide variety of solutions in order to provide optimal support for emerging workloads.
One of these challenges is increasing the availability of in-memory and on-server storage, which goes a long way toward removing latency in high-speed applications. According to a new study by storage subsystem provider Crucial, two thirds of IT decision-makers say they need to expand their capacity of server-side memory in order to support the increasing number of virtual machines under management.
