Flash-Optimized Virtual Infrastructure
Solutions to Increase VM Performance and Scale

Visit this demo to find out how simply adding SanDisk flash to virtualized servers can increase VM performance and scale – enabling more and larger VMs per server – so that you can virtualize even the most I/O intensive workloads. This solution is also valuable for consolidating servers and applications as a way to reduce software, support and other costs.

Flexible Deployment Options for SQL Server
Flash-Optimized for Performance and Efficiencies

We will showcase the flexibility and simplicity of Flash Optimizing SQL Server with the right flash in the right place to meet your workload needs. Whether adding flash as a performance tier to single server hosting your entire SQL Server database, using flash an in-server read-cache with your SAN, or using flash as shared storage for SQL Server clusters; whether virtualized or bare metal, we will highlight the various SanDisk flash deployment options available to Flash-Optimize your environment.  All of these options help to drive out inefficiencies, lower costs and raise performance.
