A lot of the time when doing tests like this they want to do connect to their machines and play with some dummy data and see what sort of numbers that you can get. This wasn't the case with Pure Storage, they offered me a unit to rack in my data center so that they could see the numbers that the array was able to handle while running actual production workloads. Here are the findings which I came up with from the Pure Storage array.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/blog/my-results-using-pure-storage-ssd-based-storage-array" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/blog/my-results-using-pure-storage-ssd-based-storage-array#comments Configuration Data Management Database Administration Database backup and recovery Disk drives Fibre Channel Flash memory Hard disk IO Performance tuning SAN SQL Server SQL Server 2008 R2 Storage Storage management Storage Type Troubleshooting SQL Server Storage Problems Tue, 06 Mar 2012 20:28:24 +0000 11753 at http://sqlmag.com Can't I just build my own SAN using commodity hardware? http://sqlmag.com/blog/cant-i-just-build-my-own-san-using-commodity-hardware <div class="node-body blog-body">It really comes down to what you want to spend your money on, managing your systems or building the storage array.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/blog/cant-i-just-build-my-own-san-using-commodity-hardware" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/blog/cant-i-just-build-my-own-san-using-commodity-hardware#comments Storage SQL Server Database Administration Compression Computer storage Computing Configuration Consolidation Data Management EMC IBM Local area networks Microsoft Windows Migration native systems NetApp SAN Server appliance Storage Storage management Technology_Internet Windows Server Windows Server 2003 Windows Storage Server Troubleshooting SQL Server Storage Problems Tue, 15 Nov 2011 14:00:00 +0000 10133 at http://sqlmag.com SQL Server Compression Estimator http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-2008/sql-server-compression-estimator <div class="field-byline"> Kline, Kevin </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Use this free tool to figure out the best compression algorithm for databases that contain many objects.</div> <p><a href="http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-2008/sql-server-compression-estimator" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://sqlmag.com/sql-server-2008/sql-server-compression-estimator#comments SQL Server 2008 Storage SQL Server Database Administration Compression Data Management Database Administration Database Administrator Free Tools Fundamental Intermediate Product SQL Server SQL Server 2008 SQL Server 2008 R2 Storage Thu, 15 Sep 2011 14:00:00 +0000 7096 at http://sqlmag.com Not All Data Compression Is Created Equal http://sqlmag.com/blog/not-all-data-compression-created-equal <div class="node-body blog-body">While we like to say that storage is cheap, the reality is that cheap is relative.
