Server-side storage acceleration solutions allow system architects to provide their applications with a significant boost in storage performance without the disruption of an upgrade. In this whitepaper, learn how using memory, RAM and/or non-volatile flash memory in the server to boost storage performance can provide lower latencies at lower cost by decoupling performance and capacity.
Waiting on IO: The Straw That Broke Virtualization’s Back
In this paper, we will discuss DataCore’s underlying parallel architecture, how it evolved over the years and how it results in a markedly different way to address the craving for IOPS (input/output operations per second) in a software-defined world.
Despite the increasing horsepower of modern multi-core processors and the promise of virtualization, we’re seeing relatively little progress in the amount of concurrent work they accomplish. That’s why we’re having to buy a lot more virtualized servers than we expected.

On closer examination, we find the root cause to be IO-starved virtual machines (VMs), especially for heavy online transactional processing (OLTP) apps, databases and mainstream IO-intensive workloads. Plenty of compute power is at their disposal, but servers have a tough time fielding inputs and outputs. This gives rise to an odd phenomenon of stalled virtualized apps while many processor cores remain idle.

So how exactly do we crank up IOs to keep up with the computational appetite while shaving costs? This can best be achieved by parallel IO technology designed to process IO across many cores simultaneously, thereby putting those idle CPUs to work. Such technology has been developed by DataCore Software, a long-time master of parallelism in the field of storage virtualization.

In this paper, we will discuss DataCore’s underlying parallel architecture, how it evolved over the years and how it results in a markedly different way to address the craving for IOPS (input/output operations per second) in a software-defined world.

Infinio Accelerator Product Overview White Paper
This whitepaper is an overview of Infinio Accelerator, a software-based server-side cache that provides high performance to any storage system in a VMware environment.
Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE This is an in-depth overview of Infinio Accelerator, a software-based server-side cache that provides high performance to any storage system in a VMware environment. It increases IOPS and decreases latency by caching a copy of the hottest data on server-side resources such as RAM and flash devices. Native inline deduplication ensures that all local storage resources are used as efficiently as possible, reducing the cost of performance. Results can be seen instantly following the non-disruptive, 15-minute installation that doesn’t require any downtime, data migration, or reboots.
Customer Solution Spotlight: Faster Database Reporting
Infinio Accelerator can improve database performance for reporting activities. By leveraging server-side resources for storage operations, Infinio can deliver IOPS at a microsecond response time, improving database reporting performance by minutes or even hours.
