April 5 — LSI will be showcasing their Nytro Portfolio of flash-based application acceleration solutions at the 2013 HPC Linux for Wall Street Conference. Product demonstrations will highlight dramatic performance, efficiency and TCO benefits of server-side flash caching for Hadoop and VDI implementations
LSI Product Demonstrations:
Acceleration of Hadoop performance with the LSI Nytro MegaRAID card
LSI will demonstrate increased Hadoop performance using Nytro MegaRAID and DAS connected storage. The demo will show Hadoop job completion times up to 30 percent faster as well as improved IOPS and bandwidth for various components of the Hadoop shuffle phase.
Acceleration of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with the LSI Nytro MegaRAID card
LSI will highlight VDI acceleration by showing a side-by-side performance comparison of the Nytro MegaRAID card versus an HDD-only storage configuration when simultaneously booting a group of 100 VDI sessions. The demo showcases how LSI Nytro MegaRAID helps to solve the VDI boot and login storm issues.
Acceleration of database performance with the LSI Nytro MegaRAID card
LSI will showcase the Nytro MegaRAID card accelerating enterprise applications in virtual machines (VMs) by caching “hot spots” of VM storage activity on flash storage resident on the card. The demonstration uses an OLTP benchmark to measure the performance of two VMs accessing databases residing on HDDs with the Nytro MegaRAID card as well as a standard RAID adapter. The transaction performance and response time using the two storage configurations will be compared.
Forecast the performance benefits of flash caching using LSI Nytro Predictor
LSI will demonstrate the Nytro Predictor software tool for evaluating the potential application acceleration benefits of caching hot data on flash using the LSI Nytro XD solution and Nytro MegaRAID cards in various user environments.
LSI Speaker Presentation:
Jamon Bowen, technical marketing manager for LSI’s Accelerated Solutions Division, will present “Achieving Persistent Data Latency” as part of a panel session titled “Connecting High Speed Systems in the Race to Zero Latency” taking place at 2:30 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom. The session will focus on flash storage, HPC networks, switches, datacenters, storage virtualization and networking Innovations.
WHEN: Mon., April 8, 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
WHERE: Roosevelt Hotel, East 45th Street and Madison Avenue, Midtown, New York
