Application Acceleration from a Data Storage Perspective


New Advances In Caching and Solid State Storage

Data storage is just one element in the application delivery ecosystem, but it turns out that it is often the critical performance bottleneck. A number of new technologies have recently come to market that optimize storage performance. This session reviews several of these innovations and explains how performance-optimization technologies can be easily integrated into the existing storage infrastructure. Topics Include: * Understanding disk I/O patterns * SLC flash versus MLC flash versus DRAM * Packaging options for solid state storage * SQL database acceleration * MS Exchange acceleration * File system tiering acceleration * Dynamic tiered storage in a SAN array * Application-Level QoS * 3rd party caching appliances * Solid state storage and deduplication
