Solving Performance Problems in the SAS Environment with Solid State Drives
The continual growth in data volumes creates challenges in our SAS environments. As data volumes grow exponentially reading and writing data, referred to as I/O, is the biggest performance challenge we face. Amadeus observed an average reduction of almost 60% in the elapsed time of SAS jobs running on Microsoft Windows Server servers when we used Fusion-ios ioDrive. The performance improvement was created by maximising I/O allowing greater utilisation of CPU and memory resources.
