The evolution of computing hardware has delivered a new era of enhanced exploration productivity. New workflows are now computationally and economically feasible, and old ones can become much more efficient and deliver better results using more or higher-quality data. Just buying the latest hardware, however, rarely delivers the full potential of the latest technology advances. Many systems are designed and configured for generic workloads. Operating systems and file systems default and are configured for the limited capabilities of legacy hard disk drives. Furthermore, the rapid evolution in computing technologies—including more efficient multi-core processors and the application of GP-GPUs—has shifted workload bottlenecks to more time waiting on I/O to storage.
This webinar will explore the interfaces, server appliances, integration and configuration of flash storage, consider the advantages and limitations of PCIe, SAS and SATA, and show how SSD’s reliability, performance, data integrity and direct application access break the I/O bottleneck for massive performance and productivity gains over HDD.
Application use models will demonstrate how SSDs boost:Seismic acquisition, interpretation and processing accelerationDatabase accelerationVirtualized server and VDI environmentsBig data and analytics solutionsWindows Server 2012 and Nexenta Storage Appliance solutions
