Availability and Services
XtremSF 550 GB and 2.2 TB eMLC capacities are currently available globally. EMC expects to make 700 GB and 1.4 TB capacities available on EMC price lists in the second quarter of 2013. EMC will extend the XtremSF family with even higher capacity offerings in the future.
EMC Global Services enables customers to accelerate their XtremSF and XtremSW Cache infrastructure deployments. 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.
Jake Bogie, Vice President IT, SureSource
operates independent online stores for some of the world's most recognized brands—including Hershey's, Budweiser, and Coca Cola. Performance is an absolute requirement for us. Today, we use XtremSW Cache with XtremSF SLC cards with our VNX unified storage to accelerate our mission-critical Microsoft SQL Server application. The performance is astonishing, enabling us to deliver premier customer service. We've seen average overall performance increases of 385% in our annual physical inventory process, 420% in our month-end accounting closure process, and 225% in daily processes. We also recently began testing the new XtremSF MLC cards in our mySQL environment. The read and write IOPS and latencies are incredible under such an intensive workload. The outstanding performance metrics we have achieved from EMC's server Flash technologies reinforces our decision to build out an all-EMC IT infrastructure in the coming years."
Brian Dougherty, Chief Data Warehouse Architect, CMA
"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
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."
