The right high-performance storageinfrastructure can overcome the management and performance challenges of clientvirtualization to deliver benefits to today’s mobile end users and busy IT administrators.Use case 1: Client virtualizationWhy flash?Challenges• Boot storm—Many systems booting to a central resource makesaccessibility difficult and negatively impacts performance• Virus scanning—Scanning on 100s of desktops on a single,centralized resource creates significant performance problems• Upgrade patching—Difficult to manage and enforce updatingnumerous individual devices with latest patches• Greater productivity and performance through significantlyhigher IOPS and better uptime through enterprise-classresiliency features• Improved end-user experience through lower I/O latencies thancurrent storage solutions can deliver• Run virus scans more efficiently (fewer images) by leveragingcentral system flash to store images

In addition, applicationsdemand consistent latency performance to ensure repeatable and fast database response.Why flash?ApproachChallengesUse case 3: OLTP/Financial• The transition from spinning media toflash has reduced the maximumstorage latency requirement to sub 1millisecond from sub 10 milliseconds• Increase speed of database and OLTPapplications• Increase transaction rate whilemaintaining low latency levels• Minimize outliers—I/Os falling withinnarrow latency band to deliverconsistent results• Seeking higher performance andproductivity• Lower consistent latency to deliverhigher customer service/experience• Solid state enables multiple-variabledata queries in microseconds versusmilliseconds• Solid state enables customers to runsimple transactional queries within aconsistent latency band
