Whether you are a public cloud services provider or your company has implemented its own private or hybrid delivery model, the cloud presents challenges. The “always-on” dynamic nature of cloud services requires infrastructure that can adapt, grow and provide consistent response under any workload. Delivering consistent, extreme performance while managing complex infrastructure can be costly. You must mitigate the impacts of variable customer use cases, application workloads, and noisy neighbors with high input-output demands that can conflict with other applications. The cost of switching service providers is low; if you don’t offer outstanding service, you will lose your customers.
Achieving the flexibility, scalability and performance essential to cloud services providers requires a new approach to data storage.
