Automatic Data Recovery Policy: Stabilizing Application Performance While Accelerating Data Recovery

As far as we know, the ultimate performance of a distributed storage cluster is physically decided by its hardware configuration. However, if unexpectable problems such as hard disk and node failures happen and trigger the data recovery during business rush hours, users may find themselves facing a hard choice: which should be the priority, accelerating data recovery or optimizing business performance?

Unprecedented Scalability: Explore SmartX HCI’s Flexible Scale-out Options

Due to the limitation of centralized storage, it’s usually difficult and risky for the IT infrastructure based on legacy virtualization architecture to scale out. Hyperconvergence, on the contrary, enables flexible expansion and on-demand investment as it streamlines the architecture by converging compute virtualization and distributed storage. This is one of the most critical reasons why more enterprises are turning to HCI.

How to achieve seamless and zero-downtime upgrade of IT infrastructure software and hardware?

As anyone who has worked as an IT infrastructure administrator knows, upgrades of software, hardware, and patches can always be nightmares. This is because IT infrastructure upgrades may incur unexpected problems and cause system outages, which can be a catastrophe to critical business — with a massive loss not limited to revenue and reputation. So most companies would avoid upgrading their IT infrastructure too often. 

Outperforming Peer Products, IOMesh Takes Cloud Native Storage to the Next Level

Preview version of IOMesh, a cloud-native storage product specifically designed and developed for Kubernetes, was released today. Committed to accelerating the containerization journey of stateful applications such as databases, IOMesh possesses cloud-native characteristics including containerized deployment, automatic operation, declarative APIs, and demonstrates excellent performance: in TPC-C MySQL test under the same hardware conditions and test parameters, IOMesh achieved TPS 2.81 times that of Portworx.
