The product development team also improves their skills in response to the increase in requirements for front-end applications. Still, the accelerating process of business-end digitalization also asks for extreme development efficiency, posing a '4+1 Challenge' to the entire IT architecture, especially storage performance.
How to quickly set up a virtual environment and significantly shorten the time of cloning and backup?
The development environment is faced with massive data access. How to improve the response speed of the database?
How to meet the performance requirements of high-performance computing and a large number of data calls in the test phase?
How to realize the data security and protection of the whole process?
How to upgrade IT architecture and improve storage performance with a limited budget?
From HDD, Hybrid Flash Array to All Flash Array, the inevitable trend of storage technology
One of the top priority tasks for the product development department is reducing virtual machine memory consumption. The "Hybrid Flash Array" solution of using some SSDs based on HDD architecture was introduced as an initial attempt, which did get a better outcome but still took too long in cloning, backup, and other links.
Through strenuous searching, the product development department finally chose AccelStor’s NeoSapphire H710 AFA (All Flash Array) for its competitive price and excellent tested performance.
•125% performance conversion rate rise of the underlying SSD
Under the level of data protection, AccelStor’s AFA can ensure the performance conversion rate of the underlying SSD is as high as 90%. In comparison, the performance conversion rate of other solutions with the same SSDs can only reach 40%.
•90% time reduction of cloning and backup
AccelStor’s AFA can help to complete 1TB cloning or backup within 20 minutes.
•99.9999% data reliability
The high availability and fault tolerance of NeoSapphire H710 AFA ensures no single node failure, eliminating service downtime and reducing the risk of an unexpected power outage, which is of significant importance for the development department with time pressure, heavy tasks, and multiple projects.
•66.75% data efficiency after improvement and a 3:1 data deduplication ratio for 30TB data
The "hybrid flash" solution requires more capacity to satisfy the development department's capacity need of 30TB. AccelStor's NeoSapphire H710 improves storage efficiency through data deduplication and compression. As a result, it perfectly meets the capacity requirements of virtual machine memory.
