    Taneja Group: Overview of Dell XC Solutions

    Traditionally, converged infrastructure systems have been built using a three-tier architecture where compute, networking and storage, while integrated together in same rack, still consisted of best-in-breed standalone devices. These systems work well in stable, predictable environments, however, when a virtualization environment is dynamic with unpredictable growth, traditional three-tier architectures often times lack the simplicity, scalability and flexibility. Dell XC Web-scale Converged Appliances powered by Nutanix software are HyperConverged models that are extremely flexible and scalable. This solution brief examines what constitutes a dynamic virtualized environment and how the Dell XC Web-scale Appliance series fits into such an environment.

    Scale-out and scale-up flash storage: optimizing business-critical workloads

    The proliferation of mobile applications, social networking, business applications and analytics —combined with exponential data growth — is driving the need for faster processing with high I/O performance and reduced response times. For all of its benefits, a storage solution that applies a common disk medium across multiple, diverse applications cannot deliver appropriate response times, sometimes sacrificing performance for economy. While flash storage is the leading technology for turbocharging I/O-intensive applications by delivering low latencies and ultra-fast response times, it’s less cost-efficient for cold data.
