The Intel Storage Builders Summit is almost here! On August 27th, representatives and leaders from companies that make up Intel’s Storage Builders program will meet up to discuss the latest in storage technology, as well as preview what’s next for the industry. The event all goes down in Las Vegas as part of VMworld 2016.
As we approach the summit and VMworld, there are sure to be plenty of announcements as all eyes are now firmly on the IT infrastructure industry. At SimpliVity, we just made a few announcements of our own, including a new all-flash solution which is powered entirely by Intel® Solid State Drives (SSDs). The new all-flash solution delivers peak and predictable performance for even the most demanding large enterprise workloads by bringing together the top performing SSDs with the best in hyperconverged infrastructure.
SimpliVity has continued to advance its solutions as the market has matured. The latest announcements, including the unveiling of the all-flash solution, show SimpliVity’s growth as an IT infrastructure solution and demonstrate SimpliVity’s continued alignment with Intel’s product roadmap. By combining SimpliVity’s Data Virtualization Platform with Intel’s SSDs, the new all-flash solution improves workload performance and enables SimpliVity to improve application performance by up to 5x, while also reducing latency for tier-one applications by 50% to 80%. The key to the new all-flash solution is SimpliVity’s superior data architecture. Intel SSDs are already incredibly reliable. And because SimpliVity completes inline deduplication, compression, and optimization, the life of the SSDs are extended even further because data writes are minimized. SimpliVity customers also experience a median data efficiency ratio of 40:1, and over one-third of customers realize a data efficiency ratio of at least 100:1, meaning that users of the all-flash solution can consolidate even more VMs on fewer terabytes of SSD storage. This all translates to a better return on investment (ROI) on both the SSDs and the solution as a whole.
Intel and SimpliVity are coming together on more than just new solutions. We are also putting together some joint activities for the Intel Storage Builders Summit and for during VMworld. Here is the full list of Intel and SimpliVity activities during the Intel Storage Builders Summit and VMworld:
• On August 27th from 1:45 to 2:30 pm, SimpliVity’s Jesse St. Laurent joins the Intel Storage Builders Summit ecosystem panel at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in South Convention Center Level 2, Reef B/C
• After the ecosystem panel, Jesse will join Intel’s Gary McCulley for a live podcast interview “Chip Chat” to discuss hyperconverged infrastructure and the new all-flash solution from SimpliVity.
• At VMworld, Jesse will be presenting alongside Intel’s Vivek Sarathy on Monday, August 29th at 1 pm in SimpliVity’s booth, for a co-presentation entitled “3 Ways to Move Beyond Storage Challenges with Intel on SimpliVity Hyperconverged Infrastructure.”
• Jesse will present once again at Intel’s booth on Wednesday, August 31st. This Tech Talk presentation takes place from 2:00 to 2:30 pm.
There is sure to be a lot of excitement with both the Intel Storage Builders Summit and VMworld coming up fast. Be sure to tune into Jesse St. Laurent’s “Chip Chat” with Gary McCulley which airs Monday, August 29th, and get a preview of all the big things to come from SimpliVity and Intel.
