Part 3 of the positioning:
All Storage vendors offer flash optimized Storage however not all flash optimized Storage is created equal.
A majority of the ones offered by incumbents layers on flash over an architecture optimized for spinning disk. The improvements you gain are marginal at best.
If otoh, you can architect a file system from a clean slate, you have the ability to leverage the best of flash and disk and deliver the performance, capacity, and intelligent data management delivering a well-rounded solution.
Four key questions became our guide for redesigning storage:
How do we leverage flash for performance, without storing data on it?
How do we leverage disk for capacity?
Remain media-agnostic and flexible as technology advances?
Transform data management?
These questions, combined with three new pieces of technology became the foundation for our product.
The three technologies were:
Flash in the form of SSD
Multi Terabyte Hard Drives
Multi Terabyte CPUs
The InfoSight Engine:
A data collection and analysis engine comprised of sophisticated analytics, system modeling capabilities, and predictive algorithms.
Performance correlation analytics
quickly identify leading factors contributing to performance or latency issues, eliminating what used to take up to several days of manual data collection and analysis.
Detailed systems modeling helps identify performance bottlenecks, and indicates whether increasing cache or upgrading controllers would improve performance of deployed workloads.
Powerful, predictive algorithms enable administrators to visualize organic data growth and identify when the array will approach capacity limits.
