Storage Performance Affects App Performance
A new report from flash storage provider Kaminario reveals that 90 percent of all application performance issues are tired directly to excessive storage use.
The study, which collected data from over two-hundred organizations over two years, found that companies experienced difficulty with OLTP (Online Transaction Processing) and OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) tied to latency and/or bandwidth – in both physical and virtual environs.
The issues were particularly typical due to the "high demand on storage to random read/write not optimized by legacy HDD arrays" said Kaminario. That high demand ultimately leads to slower response times for batch and ETL processing which can hinder the activity of users.
"If a company's database applications are accessing data from slow storage it will have an adverse impact on their business SLAs, ultimately resulting in lost revenue," said Dani Golan, CEO, Kaminario. "Customers understand that to remain competitive means they need resilient, high performing storage. The results of this study validate the industry's rapid growth in all-flash storage solutions, and underscore the requirement for consistent 3D performance across IOPS, bandwidth and latency. It's not just about IOPS in today's data centers."
