Data Center Tech Blog

SanDisk will be highlighting its HP partnership and portfolio of Flash-Optimized HP solutions at HP Discover 2015 which begins next week.

Join SanDisk® in Booth #2636

SanDisk® is touting its partnership with HP as a Gold Sponsor and showcasing a series of HP solution demos in our booth. Be sure to visit us in booth #2636 which is located along the center aisle to talk with our experts about the advantages of flash-optimized data center infrastructure.

Flash Optimized HP Solution Demo Showcase

Come see our flash-optimized HP solutions demos to learn how SanDisk Enterprise flash from HP 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.

Virtualized or non-virtualized, blade or rack server – 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 HP’s all-flash 3PAR StoreServ 7450 storage, the solutions demonstrate how the power of SanDisk flash from HP can transform your data center.

Flash-Optimized SQL Server Data Warehouse

Microsoft Validated Solutions for Faster Analytics

Our collaboration with HP has resulted in 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 HP branded Workload Accelerators.

Flash-Optimized Bare Metal and Virtualized Infrastructure

Solutions to Accelerate Transactional and VM Performance

Adding SanDisk Fusion ioMemory-based HP Workload Accelerators as PCIe flash mezzanines (capacities up to 1.6TB) to HP server blades, or as PCIe flash devices (capacities to 6.4TB) to HP rack servers is a cost-effective way to optimize application infrastructure.   The proven benefits are compelling: new levels of technical and cost 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 costs, just to name a few.

Demos will include some new HP blade-based virtualized database solutions as well as in-memory database solutions with flash configured as the log tier.

Flash-Optimized MySQL with SanDisk NVMFS

SanDisk Innovation Drives Levels of MySQL Performance

One area SanDisk is innovating with enterprise flash is the development of a file system – Non-Volatile Memory File System (NVMFS) and native-flash interfaces that run on Fusion ioMemory. MySQL is the first to benefit with dramatically new levels of performance. The demo highlights how NVMFS unlocks transactional performance while also extending flash utilization through Atomic Writes and Compression.

All-Flash HP StoreServ 3PAR Storage

Cost-effective Performance, Convergence and Scalability

To showcase our long history of collaboration with HP, we will feature an All-Flash HP 3PAR Storage demo that leverages SanDisk SAS SSD flash products.

SanDisk Flash-Enabled HP Laptops

Cost-Effective Performance and Reliability

Talk with SanDisk experts about how we are collaborating with HP for HP Zbook Ultrabook, Spectre and other laptop products. We will showcase our cost-effective, high performing flash drives, their innovative design and detail associated benefits.
