Innovation Over Integration Yields Unprecedented Storage Efficiency
We live in an age of tremendous storage hardware innovation. Solid-state drives (SSDs) that are capable of delivering more than 100,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) in raw performance have hit the market. The reality, though, is that customers are not getting the full benefits of these innovations. They are only able to obtain a fraction of these levels of performance from their storage arrays, because the storage array is bogged down by wildly inefficient legacy storage software algorithms.
