Leveraging EMC's assessment and implementation, customers can identify the server-centric applications and workloads that will most benefit from EMC Flash, and create XtremSF and XtremSW Cache deployment strategies that deliver the greatest performance benefit and return for their environment.

"At CMA, our mainline businesses are highly dependent on exemplary performance and reliability from our Oracle data warehouse environments. Using XtremIO we are able to engineer our Oracle RAC systems to be faster, more scalable, and handle more concurrent users, while at the same time requiring only 20% of the previous footprint in our data center. We've identified immediate storage cost savings of nearly $500K by leveraging XtremIO and will achieve similar savings by reducing our Oracle CPU core license requirements since XtremIO nearly eliminates I/O wait time. But perhaps the best part is the simplicity of the XtremIO system. It was installed and running in a couple of hours and is very easy to configure and manage."
