Changing the economics of flash storage
Dell Compellent delivers flash at the price of disk
NAME
January 2014
Agenda
2
01
Traditional “one size fits all” data storage strategy no longer works
02
Increasing reliance on I/O-intensive applications and solutions
03
Adoption of flash is accelerating
04
Dell Compellent changes the economics of flash storage
05
Aligning storage performance with workload requirements
06
Enterprise features extend the economic value

Data centers need to handle many types of
diverse application workloads
Read-intensive
Write-intensive
Random
Sequential
Indexing
Front End Web
OLTP Database
Email/Messaging
Data Warehousing
Virtual Desktop
• Applications are getting more
dependent on higher I/O
performance
• Traditional storage systems are
optimized for the middle of the
spectrum

@Dell_Enterprise
HPC
Streaming Media
Web Applications
Collaboration

Other
• Data stored, backed up and
archived is growing exponentially
• SLAs are becoming more rigorous
• IT budgets are often staying flat
Enterprise Solutions Marketing
What characterizes your workloads?
Traditional “one size fits all” data storage strategy is inefficient
Performance
• Hot data that needs to be retrieved extremely
fast without latency
• IOPS vs. throughput
Access patterns and frequency
• Data accessed frequently vs. cold, rarely
accessed data
• Heavily read vs heavily written data
• Data optimized for tiering vs caching
I/O patterns
• Read and write percentages
• Transfer sizes
• Sustained vs. bursty I/O patterns
Business value
• Data that is highly valuable to the business
and can be used for deriving business
intelligence, financial analysis, etc.
Each type of data needs to be treated differently to align the application performance
with capacity and cost requirements

Flash adoption is accelerating
Pent-up demand for improving application performance at the right price point
Flash prices falling faster than HDDs but still
considerably higher than 15K HDDs
New form factors: PCIe cards, appliances, shared
storage

15K HDD
Flash SSD

Multi-core processors drive up processor utilization
and demand for more I/O per server

• Stored data used to
create reports or derive
Business Intelligence
• Used for data mining,
analysis, hypothesis
testing, modeling
@Dell_Enterprise
OLTP
VDI
• Manage transactionoriented applications,
i.e. retail, banking
• Business can be hurt if
data not accessible,slow
• During peak usage,
customer experience
can be effected
• Hosting desktop OS
within a VM on a
centralized server
• Facilitate a quick
retrieval of gold images
• Boot storms, write
allocations and latency
are issues
Enterprise Solutions Marketing
What can flash storage do in your data center?
A way to accelerate business results and improve operational efficiency
Accelerate business
• New revenue streams through reduction in latency and increase in IOPS
• Quicker business insights
• Faster user access
• Better customer experience
Increase operational efficiency
• Minimized datacenter footprint
• Lower power consumption
• Lower cost of software licenses
• Simplified management

“We’re successfully mitigating boot
storms as well as load storms when
a lot of people are logging into their
virtual desktops at once. You’d be
surprised how many IOPS it takes to
log in—it’s one of the major
challenges with large-scale VDI.”
