Intel Optane: Our POV

Posted by Julita Kussmaul on Jul 13, 2017 4:34:00 PM

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.

MIC Business Solutions, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, accelerates Oracle, SQL and SharePoint with Infinio

Posted by Julita Kussmaul on Jan 21, 2016 1:33:00 PM

MIC Business Solutions, Inc. (MIBS), a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation and a leading provider of IT services, manages the information systems, such as SAP and Oracle, for customers in the highly performance-sensitive global financial trading industry across the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. So when spikes
in I/O requests occasionally overlapped during “rush hour” resulting in a negative impact on application performance and caused the end-of-day reports to run longer than usual, MIBS’ New York City-based server team started evaluating other storage solutions. “Although we had high hopes for improving performance with the EqualLogic hybrid array, the solution, while costly, didn’t give our system a significant boost,” said T.C. Chen, senior system engineer for MIBS. “It can’t support the full extent of projects we’re planning to tackle in the future.”

Comtec powers its production environment for IaaS customers with Infinio

Posted by Julita Kussmaul on Jan 12, 2016 1:19:00 PM

Comtec Enterprises, a UK-based provider of IT infrastructure, data center and communications solutions since 1994, has a stellar reputation based on an outstanding industry knowledge and an understanding of both the challenges that face enterprises and the vast array of technologies available to them. So when increasing storage latencies threatened to slow down its fast growing infrastructure-as-a-service hosting business, Comtec considered many options, including hybrid arrays, hyper-converged technologies, software-defined solutions and adding solid state disks to its servers. But based on its ease of use, non-disruptive operation and an unbeatable cost efficiency, Comtec deployed Infinio Accelerator, a software-based, server-side solution designed to increase storage performance in VMware environments with no additional hardware at a fraction of the cost of alternative designs. Read Comtec’s case study here.
