Improved TCO
•
Better $/GB, IOPS/$, GBs/$, floor
space, cooling, admin, etc..
High Performance Virtualization
Vendor A = 450k IOPS
= 8 VMs
Vendor B = 1.25M IOPS
= 25 VMs
3x more infrastructure required
to address same number of VMs
* Assumption: High-performance VM requires 50K IOPS
20
Streaming HD Video
2x more infrastructure required
to address same number of streams
Vendor A = 2.8 GB/s
= ~9 HD Stream
21
HD Stream 24-bit @ 1080p @ 60 fps:
24× 1920x1080*60=2.99 Gbit/s
Vendor B = 7.2 GB/s
= ~20 HD Stream
2017/18 Awards
