  4. 4. Why Customers Choose XtremIO Actual customer data | Workload: OLTP with 8KB Block Size 35TB Traditional Flash Array10TB XtremIO ‘X-Brick’ IOPS Traditional Flash Array = 4x more expensive •  70K IOPS for 35TB Traditional Flash Array •  70K IOPS for 10TB XtremIO All- Flash Array Latency Latency Spikes •  2-4.5ms = Traditional Flash •  Various latency spikes •  <1ms = XtremIO •  Consistent & Predictable (~0.5ms) Latency •  20-40ms = Traditional Flash •  Latency increases with capacity •  <1ms = XtremIO •  Always Consistent & Predictable System-Level Garbage Collection Impact Worse than Disk Latency
  5. 5. Workload Distribution (Based on $) Note: (1)  Algorithm based on taking into consideration all workloads in multi-workload scenarios and finding % share in total # of observations. (2)  Data pulled on 1.1.2015. •  In Q1’14, VDI was the primary WL with 42% share •  In Q4’14, DBs was the primary WL with 54% share •  VSI share has increased every quarter from 8% to 30% 70% 12% 19% 54% 8% 30% 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% Q4  '13 Q1  '14 Q2  '14 Q3  '14 Q4  '14 VDI DBs VSI EPIC Other
  6. 6. Why did Flash need a new Architecture? •  SSD has it’s own unique strengths •  SSD also has some unique weaknesses •  What’s good for Traditional Disk can be BAD for SSD Native All Flash Array © 2015 Scalar Decisions Inc. Not for distribution outside of intended audience. 6
