Written by: Stephen Withers | Published in: EnterpriseNew microcode for Hitachi Data System's Virtual Storage Platform provides a significant boost to performance with flash storage, while its new flash controller technology will yield additional improvements.
We have been using Flash Pool for a couple months now. I would like to see some metrics on it and how helpful it has been. What is the easiest way to do this? We use LogicMonitor for all our monitoring which uses SNMP and also has an account to log into the NetApp head and pull information from it.
Are there feature advantages from a VMware point of view to use a NetApp nas instead of a ZFS based NAS running e.g. OmniOS?
Another way to formulate the question: Are there features unlocked when using a NetApp nas compared to a ZFS based NAS? E.g. provisioning or perhaps performance because VMware can send commands to the NetApp.
A growing dependency on digital data has spurred new interest in flash storage technologies along with cloud-based services and storage. With the broadest portfolio of flash-memory based solutions in the industry, SanDisk is on the leading edge of this transformation, with Linux and open source at the heart of its innovation.
Storage technology vendor NetApp (NTAP) released a slew of new products aimed at the enterprise, including a line of unified enterprise storage systems powered by its FlexArray virtualization software and the latest version of its clustered Data ONTAP software.
