MEDIA ADVISORY: Nexsan CEO Philip Black to Present at SNW Fall 2012

How Hybrid Storage Systems Accelerate Virtualization Environments

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) -  Nexsan® CEO Philip Black will be a featured presenter at SNW Fall 2012 which takes place October 16-18 in Santa Clara, CA. Black will discuss the evolution of hybrid storage technologies and how they can be used to accelerate performance in virtualized data center environments. Nexsan, a leading, independent provider of data storage systems, has revolutionized the use of hybrid storage -- the combination of solid state storage with spinning media to provide excellent performance at manageable cost.

Server virtualization environments demand very heavy I/O loads on storage systems. By using innovative software algorithms, covering both read and, importantly, write caching, Black will show how users can gain significant performance increases of up to 10 times the IOPS, if the solution is fully integrated as a single software / hardware system -- known as hybrid storage. Black will also cover caching vs. tiering and an implementation example of hybrid storage using multiple types of memory for caching.

Session Title: How Hybrid Storage Systems Accelerate Virtualization Environments
