- Flash Array
Running SQL Server on all-flash crushes storage latency, enabling 3-5x better transactional throughput and dramatically simplifies operations.
Latency is the life-blood of any database application. When transactions slow, it is often a direct result of disk contention at the storage layer driving-up storage I/O latency, which directly translates into slower transactions and a slower end-user experience. Moving to an all-flash architecture for your database affords immediate and obvious performance benefits, but also introduces a whole host of operational benefits. Simply put, running your databases on flash can be dramatically faster, and dramatically easier to manage.
Our analytics application was bringing our high-end disk storage array to its knees. Moving to Pure Storage gave us tons of performance headroom, and our Microsoft SQL data was reduced 9-to-1; we were shocked! - Jeff Geltz, CIO, Mattersight
