Solid-state storage or memory is becoming
an increasingly common storage offering, providing many advantages in the areas of performance and reliability through quick response times and high rates
of input/output operations per second (IOPS). This paper investigates the deployment models of solid-state storage, and explains how the FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) SAN Accelerator solution enhances this technology to deliver additional value through application-specific and global SAN acceleration.

The performance of an organization’s IT infrastructure has a direct impact on the success of the business. The faster employees and systems can process orders, check inventory, and respond to customer requests, the more competitive that organization will be.

As organizations deploy more powerful servers and higher speed networks, they need to improve the performance of their storage infrastructure to keep up with the demands of the new components. Traditionally, organizations have dealt with storage performance bottlenecks in one of two ways: by upgrading their storage infrastructures with high-performance disk resources such as Fibre Channel (FC) or SAS drives, or by installing additional disk spindles on existing drives to match the profiles of the most I/O-intensive applications.

The introduction of solid-state storage allows organizations to rethink the way they approach performance bottlenecks. However, hosting whole applications on high IOPS, low-latency solid-state disk can be very cost-prohibitive. Organizations need an innovative way of deploying solid-state storage and reaping its benefits without the high price tag.
