SolidFire AI for virtualized infrastructure

An ecosystem of providers, one
pre-validated design

Other converged infrastructure offerings are an exercise in retrofitting legacy components into a pretty wrapper. Contrary to that notion, SolidFire has designed a converged infrastructure stack purpose-built to consolidate, automate and scale IT infrastructure for VMware .

Using only best-of-breed components (VMware, Cisco compute & networking, and SolidFire) SolidFire’s AI for Virtual Infrastructure enables and accelerates enterprise IT deployments with deep integration, QoS and modularity for scalability. With this pre-validated design, IT departments can quickly and confidently embark on their journey to the Next Generation Data Center.

The SolidFire AI advantage

With AI for Virtual Infrastructure, SolidFire has uniquely demonstrated the ability for enterprises to easily and efficiently accommodate the demands of mixed workloads from a single storage platform. Leveraging SolidFire’s unique QoS capabilities, storage policies can be provisioned and enforced to isolate each workload while running simultaneously within a shared infrastructure.

  • Do more with less - Quality of Service eliminates stranded resources and allows for the consolidation of all your mission-critical applications, operating from a single platform.
  • In-line efficiencies - With no performance penalty for deduplication, thin provisioning or compression, you’ll consistently drive down cost though data reduction.

  • Scalable - Scale your infrastructure to meet business demand non-disruptively and without downtime.
  • Incremental growth - Scale granulary. Purchase only what you need when you need it.

AI in action

To demonstrate the mixed workload capabilities of architecture through the validation process, here’s a sampling of operations that can run concurrently on the AI design:

  • Boot storm of 200 VMware Horizon View desktops
  • Two hosted Oracle OLTP database workloads running approximately 230,000 TPM
  • MongoDB job running 70 concurrent threads
  • Inline data reduction, including deduplication, compression and thin provisioning, driving 13.5x efficiency rates across all three workloads
