Datrium DVX with Flash End-to-End Review

Datrium delivers "open convergence," which is what they call the next generation of converged infrastructure. There may be as many riffs on convergence as there are vendors in the enterprise IT space, and for their part, Datrium isn't shy about promoting their vision of what infrastructure can look like. Datrium's view sees compute, primary storage, secondary storage and cloud coming together in a highly resilient configuration that is scalable and easy to manage without a silo for each class of storage. Furthermore, because most data calls will hit compute nodes with on-board flash cache, Datrium can deliver tremendous performance without having to go to the data nodes in nearly all cases. This translates to 200GB/s and 16GB/s in peak 32K read and write bandwidth and 18M IOPS 4K random read.
