Plaxo, an active business in the Comcast Silicon Valley Innovation Center, looked to SanDisk for help managing more than a dozen racks of mission-critical database servers that support the platform as well as records for Plaxo’s top-tier customers:
FlashSoft technology exceeded Ethan’s expectations, delivering a 20x performance improvement in some use cases, and allowing the team to consolidate 12 racks of servers down to three. Ethan also discovered value in server-side flash optimization by reducing I/O overhead on his mid-tier storage arrays. Finally, the planned downtime for upgrades and maintenance was much lower for the virtualized servers, which was a significant benefit since these servers provide all the data for the website.
By virtualizing mission critical database applications, further consolidating server deployments, and avoiding costly storage upgrades, Ethan found FlashSoft to be a modest investment that brought significant return for his existing infrastructure.
Virtualization has changed the way IT infrastructure is deployed and managed. Reducing I/O latency and decoupling storage performance from storage capacity allows a new performance model for virtualized environments enabling greater efficiencies across IT infrastructure.
