Tales from EMC World 2016: Building a Modern Data Center

Last year we built a data center as part of our efforts to display our full portfolio of products at EMC World. We would have never imagined the level of interaction and interest we received with hundreds of customers coming through the exhibit every day. Our customers, partners, and internal EMC folks love technology and there is no better way to get a ‘feel’ for it than actually touching it.

This year we decided to do the same thing showcasing some of the most exciting technology advances in years. We organized our live modern data center by 5 key pillars:

Building a modern data center 2

Flash – everyone understands the benefits of Flash from a performance perspective, mainly delivering predictable low response times. But supply-side innovation is allowing us to embed much denser 3D-NAND technologies delivering unprecedented density and lowering CAPEX and OPEX in ways not possible before. All Flash arrays make more sense than ever and we showcased the coolest kids on the block:

  • Unity All Flash systems combining the benefits of flash with unprecedented efficiency and simplicity. Unity is built with end-to-end simplicity in mind bringing innovation like an HTML5-based GUI and a REST API to simplify operations. We also previewed CloudIQ, a cloud-based analytics dashboard to address and manage larger topologies much more proactively.
  • VMAX All Flash combining the benefits of flash with uncontended data services and availability features like SRDF. Through the integration with CloudArray customers can be strategic about their hybrid cloud strategy. Flash where you need it and cloud where you don’t.
  • XtremIO is the uncontended all flash array market leader delivering integrated copy data management capabilities allowing customers to leverage flash in ways they could never before. Being able to deliver copies on demand means better business agility. Being able to do so without tradeoffs around performance and efficiency is the hallmark of the XtremIO architecture and something competitors struggle to match.
  • One interesting addition to our data center this year was DSSD which helps our customers get business outcomes faster than ever before by essentially stripping code out of the IO path while preserving the benefits of shared storage. Server-side flash has often been used but leads to stranded storage and the need to shuffle data around, limited capacity, and no enterprise features to secure the data set. Compare that to DSSD D5, which can provide 144TB capacity, deliver 10MM IOPS at microseconds response times, all in 5U.

Molina Healthcare’s mission is to provide quality health services to financially vulnerable families and individuals covered by government programs. The company has health plans, medical clinics and a health information management solution. No other organization of its kind does all three.

Laboratory

Over the past five years, Molina has experienced rapid growth, moving onto the Fortune 500 list to its current number 201 spot. The company has added over 2.3 million members during the past three years. Today, Molina arranges for the delivery of healthcare services and offers health information management solutions to nearly five million individuals and families who receive their care through Medicaid, Medicare and other government-funded programs in fifteen states.

Supporting this kind of growth demands a scalable, reliable and cost-effective infrastructure. Their IT organization carefully evaluated multiple solutions from different vendors, and decided that the VMAX All Flash with the VCE Vblock 740 is the best platform for their needs.

Through VCE converged infrastructure with all-flash technology, Molina is able to consolidate multiple mission-critical workloads with high performance and reliability needs onto a single platform resulting in significant CapEx and OpEx savings. (more…)

All-flash storage is proving to be an important breakthrough technology for the healthcare industry. The performance and efficiency gains enabled by all-flash arrays are allowing healthcare organizations worldwide to dramatically improve patient outcomes and clinical productivity. All-flash solutions allow IT teams to address the demanding requirements of important initiatives such as evidence-based care, electronic health record (EHR) systems, big data analytics, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), regulatory compliance and more.

With all-flash storage as the foundation of the infrastructure, healthcare organizations can leverage efficiency, compliance, outcomes, engagement and availability in all facets of healthcare delivery. Some of the specific ways in which healthcare organizations are leveraging the benefits of all-flash storage solutions are:

  • Performance: All-flash storage is necessary to enable the delivery of mission-critical healthcare at the speed of now. In healthcare, clinicians are often dealing with large data sets—for X-rays, MRIs, test results, etc., faster access to results at the point of care translates into better patient outcomes.
  • Mixed workloads: All-flash storage supports mixed workload environments and application consolidation. This is particularly valuable in EHR systems, with their stringent SLAs, transactional databases and need for solutions that deliver optimum performance, maximum data reduction and the highest levels of uptime and availability.
  • Analytics and reporting: Eighty percent of healthcare executives say providers who adopt an analytics strategy in the next three years will outpace their peer institutions. All-flash storage enables IT to speed the next generation of predictive analytics with the ability to link and correlate information in new ways for operational efficiencies, patient care delivery, clinical research, population health and security analytics.
  • Virtualized applications: All-flash storage dramatically improves the performance of virtualized applications by eliminating the impact of the IO Blender Effect, which can introduce latency at the point of care. Presenting the right data at the point of care is the mission-critical business of a provider, so any latency is unacceptable.
