Since Veeam announced the Scale-Out Backup Repository technology coming in Veeam Backup & Replication v9, I’ve been asked already multiple times to give some practical examples on how to leverage it. Let’s see together one interesting way to leverage the “performance” policy available in Scale-Out Backup Repository.
In 2014, in a presentation I’ve done, I’ve said to people that in 2-3 years new and cheaper flash memory would have become the stardard solution for general purpose disk storage, thanks to a price per GB comparable with spinning disk. Seems that I was right after all.
Looking at the latest announcements and the history of the behemoth of public cloud services, probably yes. And a leading one.
In a previous article, I wrote about the server-side caching solution Sandisk FlashSoft 3.1 for vSphere, its features and how to install and configure it in a vSphere environment. In this article I will show the results of some performance tests I did.
Ho scoperto per la prima volta FlashSoft in occasione di Storage Field Day 3 a Denver: FlashSoft era stata acquisita da SanDisk nel Febbraio 2012, ed è stata sinceramente una sopresa scoprire che il colosso delle memorie Flash possedeva una divisione Enterprise, fatta di soluzioni come appunto FlashSoft e altre. Penso che come me, molti di voi hanno sempre abbinato il nome SanDisk alle memorie per dispositivi o alle chiavette USB…
Ho finalmente potuto dedicare un pò di tempo a studiare questa soluzione. Questo primo articolo è una descrizione del prodotto e delle sue caratteristiche.
The IT industry has always been dominated by trends. Each hystoric period has seen the raise and success of groundbraking technologies, born with the goal to solve the limits of their ancestors, by introducing new ideas, better designed for the always evolving environments.
Storage is no different. If since the ’80s the rulers have been the RAID-based monolithic arrays connected to servers via a SAN, lately new solutions are raising, with different ideas but also some common features.
