General purpose, primary storage solutions, cannot handle VM specific I/O workload effectively. Having VM-centric storage in a virtualized environment is a MUST since 90% of applications are virtualized today.
"IO Blender" Effect is totally eliminated by StarWind Log-Structuring technology which converts multiple small random writes into a single sequential writes stream. As a result, the primary storage system hits outstanding performance numbers with VM-specific workload type and improved ability to use Flash, so as the parity and striped RAIDs. Also, The MLC flash short life cycle problem is no longer an issue with StarWind’s improved deduplication technology and log structuring that significantly decreases the quantity of erase cycles and re-write operations so as the result there is no spot burned.
