Your data center struggles with competing requirements from your lines of business and the finance, security and IT departments. While some executives want to lower cost and increase efficiency, others want business growth and responsiveness.
But today, most data center teams are just trying to keep up with application service levels, complex workflows, and sprawling infrastructure and support costs. These processes are anything but agile, often requiring:
- Up to 10x the storage footprint to support a single application across its production and non-production lifecycles
- Hours or days to generate analytics on what you need to know now
- Long development and testing cycles where only partial data sets and user loads are used in order to contain costs
If this seems familiar to you, data storage is likely a bottleneck in your business. There’s a solution. With XtremIO all- flash arrays (AFAs), you can have a dynamic data services platform.
What’s an Agile data center?
One that moves as fast as your business.
In IT circles, agility is a common but elusive goal, especially when you are managing initiatives such as private/ hybrid cloud, Database-as-a-Service, VDI or broad consolidation for Oracle, SAP and Microsoft applications. To be agile in a complex environment, your storage must be able to:
- Consolidate workloads to get the performance and scale to run everything on a single array with headroom for tomorrow’s application demands.
- Eliminate storage “sprawl” through advanced copy data management features, and deliver all-flash performance across entire workflows, not just for production.
- Automate storage and application processes so you can quickly and easily create copies, map them to appropriate servers and refresh development and test instances at will – all instantly and without a hiccup in performance.
Only XtremIO offers these capabilities in an all-flash array. And with them comes a new world of possibilities that have never been attainable until now.

Solution Spotlight Transform:
Transform your analytics and database workloads
Case study: Baillie Gifford consolidates its oracle workloads for breakthrough results
The leading UK investment management firm consolidated all of its workloads into an agile all-flash data center for 54% TCO savings
Databases are the heart of your business, but it’s hard to keep up with their growth and SLAs. Even worse, copy operations across the database lifecycle, analytics and other downstream applications are incredibly slow, painful and wasteful, usually requiring hours or days to create brute-force copies.
The result? Too many limitations and a static environment that’s difficult to change and grow. With the combination of XtremIO’s unique scale-out all-flash architecture, data reduction and copy services, you get the IOPS, bandwidth and effective capacity required to safely consolidate all the database and analytics workloads across your data center, with consistent sub-millisecond latencies to meet all SLAs.
And that’s just the beginning. With these powerful copy services, your teams can deploy as many copies as frequently as they want, with on-demand reporting and ETLs for real-time analytics. The result is not only dramatically simplified infrastructure at much lower cost, but true workflow agility across the entire database lifecycle and all the downstream applications that rely on it.
Transform private clouds and application-as-a-service.
Even for the most sophisticated private cloud operations, legacy storage keeps your application and infrastructure teams in reactive mode. XtremIO’s flexible private cloud platform allows you to consolidate applications and data, providing consistent and predictable scale-out performance for all workloads and all end users.
XtremIO supercharges virtualization and DevOps initiatives. We bring new capabilities to your software platforms, such as rapid VM cloning and recycling, and deliver optimal, dynamically responsive programmable and automated Continuous Development processes. In addition, Database-as-a-Service, SAP-as-a-Service, and all Applicationas-a-Service workflows are easier and more scalable, agile and cost-effective than you ever thought possible.
Case study: first national technology solutions (fnts) provisions integrated clouds built on XtremIO
A leading Midwest managed services provider enables clients to manage their cloud storage assets as easily as on-premise and achieve unprecedented value.
In recent industry research, Gartner named XtremIO the top selling all-flash array vendor and also positioned the company as a Magic Quadrant Leader. Wikibon highlights the major differences across the architectural generations of AFAs, with XtremIO recognized as the most comprehensive fourth-generation array on the market. XtremIO delivers not just the fastest, most reliable AFA in the industry, but also offers patented technology that delivers three revolutionary storage breakthroughs:
The Industry’s Only Linear Scale-Out Architecture
Earlier-generation AFAs can scale up, but with decreasing efficiency. Only XtremIO can scale out to multiple n-way active controllers with linear increases in IOPS, bandwidth, and of course capacity— all with the same consistent sub-millisecond latency. How? With XtremIO’s patented Intelligent Content Engine™, which uses a data fingerprinting process that inherently keeps the array balanced. So you don’t have to.
Inline, Always-on Data Services
XtremIO applies the principles of in-memory computing to the storage layer so that thin provisioning, deduplication, compression, data protection, encryption and copy services occur in real time at any scale, with no performance penalty. Only XtremIO’s unique in-memory metadata architecture can accomplish this feat. Now you can finally forget about risking your SLAs with post-processed data services, system-level garbage collection and outdated snapshot technologies that hinder performance.
Copy Data Services Fully Integrated at the Storage Layer
Only XtremIO can manage copy data in memory, inside an AFA. XtremIO instantly creates full size, full performance, yet entirely spaceefficient volume copies. Now your entire environment, including production and non-production instances, can be efficiently managed on a single array with amazing economics. Give your application and infrastructure teams breakthrough workflow and business process agility by eliminating time-wasting, performance-sapping, and capacity hungry brute-force copying techniques. Now they can work on more value-added projects and innovation.
The Xtremio X-factor: world-class data center services
In addition to offering the industry’s most advanced all-flash array, XtremIO uniquely offers the best-of-breed data center services for application and infrastructure management, business continuity, and converged infrastructure. When you consolidate multiple Tier- 1 workloads for your agile data center, these services will enable you to meet the highest enterprise standards.
With native integrations across EMC’s portfolio, XtremIO data center services can be managed at the infrastructure, hypervisor or application layer, and are protected with the richest business continuity offerings in the market.
Only XtremIO and EMC enable you to transition from a siloed storage management approach to deeply integrated and automated workflow processes. And these are available through traditional deployments or as a private or hybrid cloud. XtremIO transforms your application workflows, saving critical amounts of time and money and even enabling application admin selfservices for your agile data center.
Application & Infrastructure Management
Over 40% of the fortune 100 and 25% of the fortune 1000 trust Xtremio to transform their workloads. So should you
Flash storage is much more than just accelerating a siloed workload. It’s about consolidating many applications throughout their production and nonproduction lifecycles in the most agile and efficient storage infrastructure model ever. And with the ability to expand your scale-out array on-demand, with no application downtime, you can multiply your workloads organically and consolidate additional workflows as they arise. At last, there is a truly future-proof storage option that doubles the storage lifecycle.
To remain agile while maintaining consistent performance, you need XtremIO. Let us show you how our unique architecture and inline-all-the-time data services deliver data-center-driven innovation, cost effective capacity, and enterprise availability to enable your agile data center.
