Solid State Disk Solutions - The Performance Gap

For years, storage architects have observed the growing divide between processor performance and storage access times. When processors wait on storage, your users are waiting on storage. 

In addition to the growing gap between storage performance and processor performance is a similar chasm between bandwidth and storage performance.  Bandwidth is becoming available at rates that exceed even the improvement in processor performance.  Already today, there is a glut of bandwidth that is now available to enterprises for a much lower cost than was ever possible.  With almost unlimited bandwidth, the demands on the remainder of the data center only intensify.  From the firewall to storage, every aspect of system performance will need to be analyzed for bottlenecks.

Storage densities are increasing, and data access problems are only getting worse. Going forward, storage managers are required to balance the need for capacity with the need for performance. There are no easy solutions to the problem if the options only include hard disk based JBOD or RAID systems. It is the mechanical aspect of hard drives that ensures they will always be much slower than the server or in capable of filling massive enterprise bandwidth.

There is, however, a solution.  Store the data that your users and applications access the most frequently on solid state disk.  Studies have shown that the majority of storage accesses are against a small percent of frequently accessed files.  I/O wait time as these files are accessed creates the majority of delays that slow down mission critical applications.  By moving these frequently accessed files to solid state disk, it is possible to dramatically improve system performance.  The following lists many of the applications.  If you do not recognize your application in the list, please call us and we can discuss the fit of the RamSan Systems with your application.
