Morphlabs (previous CloudAve coverage), the company offering converged infrastructure solutions to enterprises, today announced that they are using Dell Technology to offer fully Solid State Drive technology based cloud solution. Morphlabs’ mCloud Data Center Unit (DCU) will be powered by the Dell PowerEdge C portfolio, the hyperscale server line developed by the Dell Data Center Solutions (DCS) team. Seeing the rising trend in using SSDs for the enterprise infrastructure needs, this is a logical move by Morphlabs.
As we move into a world dominated by big data and cloud, network latency and I/O bottlenecks are going to be critical issues. SSDs are coming out to be an attractive solutions for solving the I/O bottleneck problems. We are even seeing public cloud providers embracing SSDs as a way to attract enterprise customers into their fold. Along with the usual cloud and web 2.0 use cases, SSDs are going to help significantly in HPC and Big Data needs as they offer high performance, energy efficient solutions at a dramatically lower costs.
According to Morphlabs,
The mCloud DCU is delivered in the breakthrough mCloud Service Provider or Enterprise Rack, the most price performant converged private cloud platform for delivering and managing IT resources via on-premises or hosted private cloud. With support from Dell, Morphlabs brings to market the first all-SSD converged infrastructure platform, enabling enterprises to deploy and launch applications significantly faster. Already optimized by the sophisticated orchestration capabilities of mCloud’s technology, the mCloud platform’s innovative use of SSD technology allows for exponentially higher performance with an increase in input/output operations per second (IOPs) of up to 10 times. The mCloud Rack’s revolutionary modular architecture makes SAN-speed, durable-storage affordable with a significantly lower power footprint.
SSD in enterprise is getting more and more interesting and with further adoption of big data strategies in the enterprise, this is only going to improve.
