DCs should prepare for new storage infrastructure solutions

An outpacing increase in the importance of the information constituent of the systems in comparison with the actual computing component is one of the key trends in IT development. But on the way to implementing this global trend in recent years, certain fundamental difficulties have emerged. And the point here is not only in the accelerated growth of the volumes of stored information, just with this task modern technologies are still coping successfully.

One of the problems is the growing costs of supporting and developing the physical storage infrastructure. Of course, consumers want to reduce or at least optimize their expenses, but, in the end, this task can be solved purely using financial methods.

However, there are other, more serious problems. One of them is the limitations that have appeared in recent years in the growth of the speed of data exchange between the actual computing resources (servers) and storage devices. Against the backdrop of the rapid growth in processor capacity and the volume of information stores, this factor is now a bottleneck in terms of increasing the productivity of IT systems. The second pressing problem is that the variety of sources and information stores is constantly growing. This means that the computing infrastructure requires not only an increase in the speed of interaction between data processing facilities (processors) and storage devices, but also flexible adaptations of systems to specific hardware used and tasks to be solved.

How is it proposed to solve this problem?

Modern architectural solutions and data management technologies based on the concept of software-defined IT allow not only to reduce costs, but also to increase the efficiency of server systems application in comparison with the orientation to the use of traditional storage systems. This approach is used in the solutions of DataCore Software, which allow in practice to create hyper convertible virtual storage systems (SAN) with record price / performance indicators to date.

Using Products DataCore Software provides the creation of an intermediate program layer for data exchange, executed on standard architecture servers, including in the form of virtual machines. Separation of the control layer from the data warehouses directly allows solving the task of managing heterogeneous information storage environments, including those inherited. This dramatically increases the flexibility of increasing storage, including by simply purchasing individual disk drives.
