Data center efficiency challenges are on the rise. With advances in digital technology, everything from medical records, advanced weather modeling, videos, movies are being digitized. Massive amounts of unstructured data (aka “Big Data”) is forcing IT managers to rethink how they manage and store information.
A full 17 percent of IT budgets are devoted to storage, and power and cooling costs represent as much as 40 percent of operational expenses. Corporate data is expected to increase by 650 percent from 2009 to 2015.
As enterprise storage continues to grow at a staggering rate, businesses can no longer meet their capacity needs by simply adding more storage to their traditional, siloed data center infrastructure.
Enterprise storage solutions based on Intel Technology can evolve storage architecture into dynamic, flexible environments that enable IT to scale capacity and implement efficient capabilities to keep up with explosive data growth.
Intel® Xeon® Technology provides the energy-efficient performance, added data protection and scalability that powers innovative storage solutions for tomorrow’s data centers. It is time to evolve your storage architecture, retire legacy storage sub-systems and prepare for emergent deployment models, such as the cloud
ECBFI & Intel Innovative Storage Capabilities for Data Center Efficiency
Today's storage infrastructure is too costly and inefficient. In traditional storage architecture, storage capacity is provisioned per application and for long-term needs. IT can no longer afford this model. Tackling the data center’s toughest efficiency challenges are new storage optimization capabilities.
These intelligent storage workloads demand the energy-efficient compute power of Intel technology. The Intel® Xeon® processor’s unique combination of compute and bandwidth dramatically improve the performance of capabilities such as thin provisioning; enable the automation of storage tiering and reduce price per TeraByte through data de-duplication.
The Intel ECBFI provides an APIs to a number of utilities for consuming the services with the bare minimum source code so not only is it quick and easy to implement, it also runs fast. Cloud Services SDK is flexible, providing several methods to use the services, either independently or in combination.
Start playing with some code snippets, the best way to get in touch with the APIs.
