I recently recorded an interview with PernixData where he discusses some of the largest challenges with virtualized databases, and talks about how we leverage PernixData’s FVP product to bring the in-memory data discussion to a layer below the database to boost performance while simplifying the entire environment. Check it out!
In-memory computing is gaining widespread acceptance as a way to speed database performance by moving hot data into main memory. But, in-memory solutions tend to be limited in functionality, lack scalability without major application changes, are cumbersome to deploy and configure, and are extremely expensive.
PernixData FVP solves these challenges by turning in-memory computing into an infrastructure layer solution that benefits all virtualized applications.
If you have virtual SQL Servers and storage performance matters to you, check out this webinar! RSVP here today for this free webinar!
Today I’d like to announce that I have been selected as a PernixPro for 2015! It’s a program similar to VMware’s vExpert, Microsoft’s MVP, and other community awards for those that help spread the word about PernixData. I’m very proud to be a part of this program!
For those new to PernixData, the FVP product is a great means to boost storage performance underneath virtual machines. It can leverage local host-based SSDs for I/O read and write caching. It can also leverage host memory for I/O caching as well. Redundancy capabilities include synchronous mirroring of cached data to other hosts so that if a host fails, no data is lost. This platform is incredible, and Gareth wrote about this too but i have been using it to boost I/O performance underneath virtual SQL Servers for quite some time now. I look forward to some research soon showing some performance features once the home lab is back online soon!
