Application consolidation can be an important cloud initiative. By consolidating applications on an all-flash, cloud-centric platform, IT has the opportunity to reduce costs, lower risk and support a more integrated and interoperable infrastructure. But for any organization thinking about application consolidation, it is important to closely evaluate the features and functions of the underlying all-flash storage platform. You want to make sure that your platform not only delivers the performance you need, but also enables you to reduce costs, eliminate migrations, simplify operations and support cloud-enabled business agility.

VMware Horizon View is an enterprise-class desktop virtualization solution that delivers virtualized or remote desktops and applications to end users through a single platform. Horizon View is a tightly integrated, end-to-end solution built on the industry-leading virtualization platform, VMware vSphere. Although Horizon View enables levels of availability and agility of desktop services unmatched by traditional PCs, the complexity of deploying and managing thousands of virtual desktops in a VMware environment can be daunting without the right tools. Storage is often the leading cause of end-user performance problems. The NetApp all-flash FAS solution with the FAS8000 platform solves the performance problems commonly found in VDI deployments. In this reference architecture, NetApp tested VMware Horizon View user and administrator workloads to demonstrate how the NetApp all-flash FAS solution eliminates the most common barriers to virtual desktop adoption.

NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate. In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario. In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.

The all-flash array (AFA) market has undergone significant maturation over the past two years. A high percentage of customers have already committed to an "all flash for primary storage" strategy, and every customer interviewed for this study was among those. In 2017, AFAs will drive over 80% of all primary storage revenue. All of the established storage vendors have entered this space, and there are several start-ups with over $100 million in revenue. With this level of market maturation, multiple segments have developed within the primary flash array space. There are systems targeted for dedicated application deployment, there are systems specifically for web-scale applications, and there are systems intended for dense mixed workload consolidation. These latter systems are driving most of the AFA revenue, and they aspire to become the primary storage platforms of record for enterprises of all sizes. This study evaluates the suitability of 10 vendors' AFA platforms for dense mixed ent

Although the cost of flash storage solutions continues to fall, on a per-gigabyte capacity basis, it is still significantly more expensive to acquire than traditional hard drives. However, when the cost per gigabyte is examined in terms of TCO, and the customer looks past the pure acquisition cost and accounts for “soft factors” such as prolonging the life of a data center, lower operating costs (for example, power and cooling), increased flexibility and scalability, or the service levels that a flash solution enables, flash solution costs become increasingly competitive with spinning media.

The NetApp flash portfolio is capable of solving database performance and I/O latency problems encountered by many database deployments. The majority of databases have a random I/O workload that creates performance problems for spinning media, but is well-suited for today’s flash technologies. NetApp has a diverse enterprise-class flash portfolio consisting of flash in the storage controller (Flash Cache™ intelligent caching), flash within the disk shelves (Flash Pool™ intelligent caching), and all-flash arrays (EF-Series and All-flash FAS). This portfolio can be used to solve complex database performance requirements at multiple levels within a customer’s Oracle environment. This document reviews Oracle database observations and results when implementing flash technologies offered within the NetApp flash portfolio.
