In primary block storage environments traditional disk-based systems are inherently inefficient from both a performance and capacity standpoint. To meet performance demands using traditional approaches, cloud providers must balloon the number of disks deployed to increase IOPS at the expense of utilization. Some companies have attempted to overcome this capacity sprawl, or increase utilization rates by adding efficiencies like compression or deduplication. In practice however, within a primary storage environment these technologies cripple storage performance rendering the available capacity useless.
In contrast, the SolidFire storage solution is built on a high-performance SSD architecture with real-time deduplication, compression and thin provisioning inherent to the system. For the cloud service provider, this unique combination of performance and capacity optimizations yields a far more economical and efficient delivery of mission critical applications than previously possible.
