EMC ScaleIO for Databases
Commonly run in a cluster, databases require a parallel processing environment. Database applications are business-critical and must be highly available, highly performing, resilient, and scalable.
In addition, databases require a storage foundation that provides parallel I/O processing, fault tolerance, and linearly scalable performance. EMC ScaleIO for Databases is the ideal storage system for these requirements.
ScaleIO is based on a scale-out architecture in which each node in the cluster is a compute/storage converged machine. The machines themselves are the same servers that run applications in the data center. Because ScaleIO has minimal central processing unit (CPU) requirements while providing high-performance data services, no additional hardware infrastructure is needed.
ScaleIO features enterprise-grade resilience, linearly scalable performance, and the ability to elastically change the size and structure of the cluster with no impact or downtime on key business applications. Massively parallel I/O processing allows high-performance databases to fully manifest their real time performance.
