StorTrends Hybrid and All-Flash Storage Arrays Boost Application Performance for Virtual Server Environments
StorTrends today announced details on how customers and partners across virtually every industry, including education, energy, finance, state & local government, healthcare, manufacturing, and retail, have benefitted from the increased application performance achieved using StorTrends hybrid and all-flash storage arrays in high-demand virtual environments. Using StorTrends storage appliances, customers can achieve unprecedented performance, reliability, scalability and cost savings -- especially in Virtual Server deployments.

StorTrends is among the leading hybrid and all-flash storage array providers to capitalize on this growth opportunity. With a long standing history of delivering innovative storage solutions that break price/performance barriers, StorTrends has optimized support for a complete range of virtual environments including VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Xen and Red Hat RHEV. The result is a suite of storage arrays that will achieve dramatic enterprise performance and reliability at an extremely affordable price point.

Among the keys to StorTrends' success is the StorTrends iDATA Tool which automatically identifies an environment's actual storage needs and requirements before a customer makes a purchasing decision. Running quietly in the background of an existing IT environment, the StorTrends iDATA Tool will, after seven days, reports on key metrics including capacity utilization, IOPS usage, reads versus writes for volumes, network bandwidth performance, server statistics and application information. The result is a clear and accurate picture of the storage requirements needed for optimum operation and to ensure organizations select exactly what they need eliminating the need to overprovision costly resources.

"The number one reason most storage installations fail is due to a lack of accurate information regarding the IT environment's performance requirements," said Justin Bagby, Director of StorTrends. "With StorTrends iDATA we eliminate the guesswork so that customers can build their storage infrastructure with the insight and knowledge that fuels their success. The StorTrends iDATA tool determines how much active data a customer has within his or her environment. This allows us to spec the approximant amount of SSD or flash for the infrastructure to be successful. This, along with the high value of our StorTrends Hybrid and All-Flash Storage Arrays, continues to deliver impressive performance results for our customers. Why guess at your data storage configuration when you can run the free StorTrends iDATA tool and know?"

"Our guidance to end-users is clear -- we advise that they should strongly consider hybrid or all-flash arrays (HFA or AFA) when it comes time for a tech refresh to support business critical environments requiring high performance data capabilities. The HFA or AFA choice should be made after a careful review of internal business and IT requirements, as well as budget. And then, a vendor offering advanced enterprise capabilities together with competitive pricing, such as StorTrends, should be selected," advised Deni Connor, Founding Analyst, SSG-NOW.
