Description

Scale-out has come up as the technology to meet the constantly increasing demands to storage capacity. Unlike Scale-up it allows scaling horizontally. But it also has some caveats. In most cases you need to stick with specific hardware with none or limited configuration options, which is cost- and efforts- consuming. You have to follow only one scenario – “compute and storage separated” or hyper-converged one, which essentially kills the idea of flexibility. The entry price is also an issue since most of the vendors sell minimum 3 hosts, even if you just need 2 for your environment.

Watch the webinar to learn to avoid these caveats and benefit from:
  • Scale-out and scale up with NO hardware lock-in
  • Scale-out with ANY hypervisor
  • Support “compute and storage separated” and hyper-converged scenarios simultaneously
  • Asymmetric Scale-out
