Albert Einstein once said, "No problem can be solved by the same kind of thinking that created it." At Infinio, we like to say that this is particularly true about storage performance problems - they can't be solved with hardware alone.
Disclosure: As a leading DRAM and NAND caching company for data centers and private clouds, we’re collaborating closely with Intel on Optane testing, and it is an area of great interest to us. We’ve been closely following the discussion around the recent Register article that quotes Wikibon’s report on Optane by David Floyer. While we don’t have a subscription to Wikibon and thus can’t read the full report, we wanted to respond, as most IT decision makers will only see the Register article or the Wikibon free preview.
Uh, oh did you miss our "VMware Storage Performance: 5 things you didn't know" webinar a few weeks back? Here are the 5 things we shared with our audience:
Today, I'll outline how you can use SolarWinds Integrated Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (IVIM) and SolarWinds Virtualization Manager (VMAN), Infinio Accelerator, and a little scripting, to build an automated latency remediation process. To fit all of this into a single post, I plan to focus on the required details and leave out fine tuning and exception handling. I'll also point you to a bare-bones script that you can adapt for your purposes.
