Customer expectations of storage infrastructure have evolved – thanks in large part to the on-demand, agile nature of public cloud offerings – and key NetApp SolidFire All-Flash Array characteristics, such as its software-defined nature, scale-out architecture and rich automation capabilities, are fueling next generation data center design.
Underpinning SolidFire’s architecture are Intel® Xeon® processors, a critical component in our market-leading all-flash storage solution. They deliver the optimal blend of performance, durability and efficiency to accommodate the stringent demands of SolidFire's cloud service provider customers.
We have seen immense success in our customer environments with SolidFire’s unique offerings:
SolidFire nodes provide ultimate flexibility allowing our customers to purchase what they need when they need it. Our scale-out architecture, and the resultant ability to grow granularly and linearly, with mixed storage has given all our customers room to be flexible and avoid extra costs. California Public Utilities Commission's Infrastructure Manager stated, “The biggest benefits we get from SolidFire are guaranteed IOPS and the ability to scale out,” Albert said. “All I need to do is add another node, which is significantly cheaper than upgrading to a newer model. SolidFire gives me the performance and capacity I need without breaking the bank and without the need to move data.”
Solving Next Gen Demands
The era of cloud services has raised the bar on what it means to deliver IT services and enterprises IT is under significant pressure to emulate this flexibility, scale, and automation inside their firewalls.
FICO was able to see transformation in their business with SolidFire’s integration with OpenStack and VMware, along with its ability to reduce redundancies of multiple shared workloads and guarantee exact levels of performance and capacity, which enabled FICO to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) and meet service level agreements (SLAs) for its FICO Analytic Cloud clients.
SolidFire’s Quality of Service (QoS) is a critical enabling technology for enterprise and cloud and hosting providers. It allows delivery of consistent primary storage performance to business-critical applications.
