Ultimate Software is a leading cloud provider of comprehensive human capital management (HCM) solutions in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model to more than 2,800 customers with employees in 150 countries. “Storage has always been Ultimate’s biggest technology challenge" according to Senior Director of Cloud Operations, Steven May. The company’s storage goals revolve around managing growth while combining the economics of leveraging shared resources on demand with the performance and predictability of dedicated infrastructure. Seeking high IOPS performance, fault tolerance, and scalability, along with a high availability solution that supports both VMware and OpenStack, Ultimate's search led them to SolidFire.
Forward-looking organizations are looking to next-generation all-flash storage platforms to eliminate storage cost and performance barriers. Advancements in all-flash technology have led to remarkable priceperformance improvements in recent years. The latest all-flash solutions from HPE deliver breakthrough economics, speed and simplicity, while improving availability and data durability. All-flash storage can help you reduce TCO and boost the performance of traditional applications as well as accelerate the rollout of new initiatives like IoT, big data and analytics. But moving data to a new storage architecture introduces a variety of organizational and technical challenges.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.

Scalability has always been an important characteristic of enterprise storage systems, maybe the most important, since the rationale of consolidating storage assumes that the system can easily grow with aggregate demand.
Your IT team is struggling with aging, inflexible, and complex infrastructure and processes that make it difficult to support new business needs or take advantage of cloud. Learn how you can transform your data infrastructure using flash storage to meet service level performance and availability, enabling your team to focus on the delivery of new applications and services.
This document provides an overview of EMC’s XtremIO architecture as it compares to SolidFire. Not intended to be exhaustive, this overview covers select elements where the solutions differ and presents their impact to overall suitability for data center needs.
So you’ve chosen OpenStack for your cloud infrastructure. Now another big decision needs to be made: Block storage or object storage? OpenStack has sub-projects that deliver both block (Cinder) and object (Swift) storage. A variety of performance-focused primary storage and optimized secondary storage solutions are on the market, and they provide flexible, highly scalable storage services for OpenStack.
Quality of service (QoS) is a critical enabling technology for enterprises and service providers wanting to deliver consistent primary storage performance to business-critical applications in a multi-tenant or enterprise infrastructure. The type of applications that require primary storage services typically demand greater levels of performance than what is readily available from traditional storage infrastructures today. However, simply providing raw performance is often not the only objective in these use cases. For a broad range of business-critical applications, consistent and predictable performance are the more important metrics. Unfortunately, neither is easily achievable within traditional storage arrays.
