Businesses that are evaluating hyperconverged solutions, whether as a replacement for or in addition to their existing traditional storage solution, must ensure that the new technology meets all of their environmental requirements, including but not limited to:
- Simple to deploy and manage
- Scale to meet growing needs
- Lower CAPEX and OPEX
- Provide enterprise-class features
- Meet performance requirements
This document provides a validated configuration of Maxta Hyperconvergence Software running on Intel servers, processors, and PCIe (NVMe) SSDs. This solution has been optimized to provide the best performance for a typical virtualized environment, all while reducing deployment complexity, improving storage efficiency, and maintaining low cost. Flexible I/O (FIO) synthetic benchmark was utilized to simulate a typical workload found in a modern virtualized data center consisting of databases, email servers, virtual desktop infrastructure, file servers, print servers, and other applications.
