IT infrastructure components

Introduction

Since the turn of the millennium, the majority of IT infrastructure components have seen an exponential improvement in performance; this has not been the case for storage. Whilst capacity has increased, performance has remained virtually unchanged.

CPU, DRAM, network and bus performance have all outpaced storage by anything from 10 to 400 times. If they would have kept pace, hard drives would now be spinning at up to 6 million rpm. Instead, storage has become the main bottleneck in datacentres.

At the same time, power, cooling and maintenance costs have been on the rise, with storage accounting for approximately one third of datacentre power consumption. Whilst there have been advances in aerial density and caching, spindle short-stroking and primary storage tiering have all emerged as potential solutions, they all have their drawbacks.

Thanks for the memories, hard drives Sustainable Storage® is here
Nimbus Sustainable Storage® provides the most intelligent and efficient solid state storage platform to enable enterprises and datacentres to solve storage performance and associated operating cost challenges.

Nimbus Sustainable Storage systems, including the modular S-Class system and the cloud-scale E-Class system, represent a revolutionary departure from spinning disk arrays, delivering purpose-built all-flash storage with comprehensive unified storage management and data protection software built-in.

Solutions

Overview
  • Performance – Delivers consistent and predictable high performance by eliminating rotational latency, dramatically accelerating random and sequential workloads.
  • Efficiency – Consumes one-fifth the power of disk arrays of the same capacity, cutting operating costs while enabling greener, denser, and longer-life datacenters.
  • Reliability – Eliminates sensitive moving parts, minimizing the risk of mechanical or environmentally-induced failures to improve application availability.
  • Intelligence – Provides complete storage software for unified provisioning, end-to-end data protection, and efficient capacity management in one elegant solution.
