How much of your data is actually hot? How much are you storing on your hottest tier? If you’re relying on traditional storage systems, the difference between those two responses could be major. Enterprises are investing in the fastest, most expensive options available for their storage without fully understanding the nature of each workload. For instance, many storage developers lack access to storage monitoring tools that base insights on hard evidence, but when you consider the breakdown of most enterprise workloads, the amount of wasted resources you may be working with can be surprising.

It’s imperative that some detailed research be conducted on the nature of enterprise workloads and the placement of hot, warm and cold data before a storage system is built. In this session, CTO of ClearSky Data Laz Vekiarides will share some of the questions every storage architect should ask, such as:

Learning Objectives

Is your most expensive data on your most expensive storage tier?
What sorts of latencies are your applications seeing?
What real-world benefits can be derived from virtualized tiering technology? Where does it fail?
