In today’s information age, businesses are increasingly relying on data for decision making. Business needs are driving rapid growth of data. At the same time, IT departments across organizations are being challenged to increase efficiency and improve services.
Microsoft SQL Server is the core database engine supporting many business-critical applications. Storage is a key component to the successful design, deployment, and optimization of a SQL Server environment. An effective storage subsystem is not only crucial to delivering fast application response time, but it also affects the availability and efficiency of the database.
The DELL EMC XtremIO X2 all-flash storage array effectively addresses the needs of modern database applications. XtremIO delivers impressive high IOPS, ultra-wide bandwidth, and consistent sub-millisecond latency for databases of all sizes, thus providing an ideal storage platform for running online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytical processing (OLAP), or mixed workloads. XtremIO built-in storage efficiency and integrated copy data management features bring new levels efficiency, agility, and availability to SQL Server database lifecycle management.
