In the last 10 years, the rate of compute and network performance has outpaced storage. Compute nodes with multiple cores, advanced memory technology, high speed bus, and fast network NICs have kept pace with network speeds of 25GbE/40GbE, and even up to 100GbE.
Unfortunately, most storage architectures, even the new clustered scale up/out architectures, are nothing more than derivatives of older legacy designs, and, as a result, storage has become the primary bottleneck for applications.
Read this technical white paper about the Pure Storage FlashBlade petabyte-scale storage system for unstructured and operational data. It is designed with four key innovations to overcome the limitations of conventional clustered NAS systems: high performance storage devices, unified network, distributed storage operating system, and administrative simplicity.
