IT managers want it and we have it. One of the reasons for outsourcing the operations of your Microsoft Dynamics environment is get access to best in class technology that increases operational performance. Ask an IT manager how to increase performance and most will tell you to reduce the time it takes to read and write data from a disk. Spinning disk hard-drives are slower than solid state drives but they happen to be less expensive. Why not get the best of both worlds with a hybrid storage solution?
At WatServ we use Nimble’s best in class CS-Series Storage Array. This is a hybrid array that has a solid state tier for performance coupled with spinning disks for capacity. This is further enhanced by proprietary software that increases efficiency when writing data to the array.
Instead of writing to the spinning disk as it happens, the Nimble software manages those write operations in the solid state tier and then writes them to the spinning disk in a stream to take advantage of the physical operation of the disk. In managing write operations in this manner our customers can see a speed increase of up to 100 times faster than traditional disk-based storage.
As a WatServ customer you probably aren’t interested in knowing exactly how we deliver our increased performance. All you will notice is that the performance of our system is unlike any Microsoft Dynamics environment you have ever used.
