Join SanDisk® in Booth #230

SanDisk® is a Gold Sponsor this year at Discover 2015 in London and will be showcasing a series of flash-optimized HPE solution demos in our booth. Be sure to visit us in booth #230 to talk with our experts about how to benefit from flash-optimized data centre infrastructure. In addition to the demos, we will host a series of 10 minute presentations running each 30 minutes in the booth.

Flash Optimized HPE Solution Demo Showcase

Come see our flash-optimized HPE solutions demos to learn how SanDisk enterprise flash from Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a game changer for virtually every database and application with which it is used. Whether used locally, for tiered storage, or as all-flash arrays, SanDisk flash is turning what was considered IT best practice on its head – with new economics and performance.

Rack or blade server, virtualised or non-virtualised,– adding flash is becoming a standard practice by many for optimizing not only performance, but scalability, reliability and availability. Whether configured as an in-server performance tier or used in HPE’s all-flash 3PAR StoreServ Storage, including the 8000 Series and 20000 Series, SanDisk flash is helping customers drive new levels of technical and financial efficiencies in their data centres resulting in higher business productivity and service levels.

  • Solution Demo 1: Flash Optimizing Your Database Infrastructure
    New Levels of Performance and Efficiencies
  • Solution Demo 2: Flash-Optimized Virtualised Infrastructure
    Solutions to Accelerate Transactional and VM Performance
  • Solution Demo 3: Flash-Optimized SQL Server 2014 Data Warehouse
    Microsoft Validated Solutions for Faster Analytics

Taking advantage of PCIe Workload Accelerators

Adding SanDisk Fusion ioMemory-based HPE Workload Accelerators as PCIe flash mezzanines (capacities up to 1.6TB) to HPE server blades, or as PCIe flash devices (capacities to 6.4TB) to HPE rack servers is a cost-effective way to optimize your application infrastructure.

Many organizations, for example, are flash-optimizing their virtualized servers as a platform for server and workload consolidation, achieving dramatically more work per server. The proven benefits are compelling: new levels of efficiencies drive application transaction performance acceleration and scale – resulting in more transactions, faster; more queries, faster; faster start-up, higher SLAs, higher VM performance densities, reduced complexity, lower software license and other costs, just to name a few.

SanDisk collaborated with HPE and Microsoft to produce three single-server Microsoft validated SQL 2014 Data Warehouse Fast Track Reference Architectures (FTRA) solutions. For data warehouses from 28TB to 90TB, with throughput performance up to 10.1GB/s, each solution is designed with SanDisk Fusion ioMemory-based HPE branded Workload Accelerators.

HPE Live Demos in Booth #6989

HPE will be featuring a live demonstration of their new Virtual SAN (VSAN) hyper-converged Solution for VDI using the latest HPE PCIe Workload Accelerators. The solution is a three-node cluster configured with HPE ProLiant DL360 Gen9 servers and VMware software.

In addition, HPE will be featuring a 3PAR StoreServ 20850 Storage demo that leverages SanDisk flash, highlighting convergence, consolidation and scalability.
