Improve performance of tier-one applications without purchasing additional hardware

If your organization has adopted virtualization full-scale, you may be finding out how demanding tier-one applications can be on storage. Applications like SQL, Exchange, and Oracle can require lower latency and higher IOPS and throughput than traditional arrays can provide. The consolidation of more workloads on fewer drives, coupled with the ineffective nature of traditional optimizations on virtualized workloads, can wreak havoc on storage system performance.

Infinio provides an alternative to expensive hardware-based solutions to address these performance problems. By building a distributed caching layer exclusively from RAM, Infinio can improve response time, even during peak load times. We don’t need SSDs or flash devices, and you won’t need to change your day-to-day operations.

Reduce storage costs

Storage costs can comprise a significant portion of your IT budget, as you struggle to find a solution that meets growing requirements. You may be buying storage for capacity, but more likely you are adding drives and specialized hardware (like SSDs or flash) to meet growing performance demands. The associated operational costs—such as complexity and training— can be steep as well.

Infinio can bring new life to your existing hardware by inserting a distributed, caching layer between your hypervisor and your storage.  This can offload 65-85% of read requests from back end storage, often extending its life or enabling it to handle more applications or users. With an annual-term licensing model, Infinio can easily fit into your operating budget, at less than the cost of maintenance on a new array.

Increase application performance

Your applications run your business – they are the most important tool your users have to get their work done. When performance is slow, or there are delays in processing, it can impact your bottom line. However, you may not have the right hardware necessary to support growing business needs.

Infinio can increase application performance by reducing storage latency. During steady-state daily operations, improved response times can result in applications that better meet business requirements.  During peak load times, like batch processes or nightly jobs, Infinio’s ability to reduce latency can mean the difference between completing these activities in a reasonable amount of time, or not completing them at all.

Avoid upheaval in your datacenter

Datacenters today are dynamic and busy.  On a near-daily basis, you may be facing new applications and new demands from the business, which may necessitate new hardware and infrastructure. Often, administrators need to be trained on each new component, meaning significant time out of the office. Changes to infrastructure can also mean cumbersome changes to configurations, operations, and scripts.

With Infinio, you can address new infrastructure requirements without any changes to your environment. Without any new hardware like SSDs or flash devices, Infinio can improve storage response time for applications. Once installed, Infinio doesn’t require any changes to your storage operations, enabling you to continue using snapshots, replication, backup scripts, VAAI integration, and vMotion as you did prior to Infinio.
