Enterprise applications range from high-volume online transaction processing (OLTP) and database applications to Web 2.0 and high-performance computing (HPC) solutions.
Many of these modern applications have become dependent on I/O throughput for application performance. As the number of users and the amount of data stored continue to grow, traditional storage architectures require more and more disk drive spindles to generate enough I/O throughput to keep up with the I/O processing speed of servers.
This white paper provides an overview of hybrid storage pools (HSPs) and how they can help businesses meet the growing demands for storage I/O throughput in today�s data-intensive applications.
