IDC Technology Spotlight: Managing the I/O Explosion Without Additional Hardware

Optimizing IO Performance to Enable More Efficient and Cost Effective Information Management (January 15, 2013)
DMN Newswire--2013-1-15--

In a new Technology Spotlight by IDC, the market research firm summarizes that organizations can gain more from information by addressing IO bottlenecks. Read the full report at http://bit.ly/RCu5DM

According to IDC, the digital economy has put greater value on information as a competitive advantage. The megatrends of virtualization, cloud computing, and bring-your-own device (BYOD) and the increased use and generation of large digital files are all adding to the mix as enterprises must access, manage, store, analyze, and recover information to increase revenue. This Technology Spotlight discusses the unexpected input/output (I/O) explosion -- the direct by-product of virtualization in a digital economy trying to extract value from this compounding data. The document offers guidance to organizations that are looking to eliminate I/O bottlenecks without incurring the cost of extra storage hardware to keep up with application demand. It also examines software optimization technologies such as Condusiv Technologies' V-locity VM Accelerator, which optimizes I/O at the server level to prevent unnecessary I/O operations from getting into the network or shared storage.

Virtualization ? Promise Unrealized


Applications, mobile devices, and embedded systems are creating tremendous amounts of data, with information generated increasing by a factor of 50 and the number of files a datacenter must manage growing by a factor of 75 or more over the next 10 years. To address this data explosion and extract value from it, organizations are implementing virtualization. While virtualization provides enterprises with the agility, scalability, and cost savings required to meet these increasing business and data challenges, it is creating an I/O explosion. Left unanswered, this I/O explosion forces enterprises topurchase ever-increasing amounts of hardware and hire IT staff with expertise in virtualization to manage it all. The combination of hardware and highly skilled people increases investment costs ? robbing organizations of the full value of their virtualization investments.

The Information-Based Economy and the Growth of Data

The amount of data generated by the digital universe continues to outpace the capacity to  cost-effectively process, analyze, and store the information. The volume of digital data created, stored, and replicated annually now regularly surpasses the zettabyte level (1 sextillion bytes). The vast majority of the information, 75%, is generated by individuals in this age of personal mobile devices. However, enterprises are liable (wholly or in part) for an estimated 80% of this data at some point in its life. Adding to this load is the BYOD phenomenon, in which mobile workers are using their own  smartphones, tablets, and related technologies to generate more information. Because much of this data is unstructured, there must be tools to create data about data ? metadata ? to help enterprises use the information to their advantage, further adding to the growth and stressing already overwhelmed IT infrastructures.
