The Challenges of Cloud Service Providers - Part One - Softlayer
Tuesday, October 04, 2011 posted by Adam Carter
Nathan Day and Duke Skarda of SoftLayer were kind enough to talk with the guys from Silicon Angle/Wikibon.org on the Cube at this years VMworld. During their discussion they touched on a major challenge that many cloud service providers are dealing with today… storage performance. One of the points that was brought up was fine grain control on Quality of Service. They referred to "per volume" or "per account" control as storage nirvana. At SolidFire, our architecture was designed from the ground up with this in mind. The ability to guarantee consistent QoS to thousands of applications and thousands of customers is how SolidFire is making storage nirvana a reality.
