Principled Technologies Compares VM Migration Between Intel Processor-Based Servers and Between Servers Based on Different Processor Architectures

Durham, NC, March 18, 2019 –(PR.com)– For businesses that rely on various types of cloud environments to run their applications, the ability to move VMs to one server to another offers flexibility that supports business agility. Technologies such as VMware vSphere vMotion enable live migration of VMs with zero downtime, as long as the servers share the same underlying architecture. When migrating between servers powered by processors with different architectures, the only option is to shut down the VM before migrating it.

In hands-on testing, PT migrated VMs in a homogeneous environment of servers powered by current and older Intel Xeon processors and in a heterogeneous environment consisting of both Intel Xeon processor- and AMD EPYC processor-based servers. Live migration of VMs in the former environment was seamless with no service interruption, while “cold migration” of VMs in the mixed CPU environment incurred downtime, which would require planning and place a burden on administrators.

According to the report, “If your company selected servers powered by the AMD EPYC processor, you would not be able to carry out live migrations between existing servers powered by Intel processors and the AMD processor-based servers. The data center would, in effect, have two separate pools of servers and the mobility of VMs would remain limited for the life of those servers.”

Principled Technologies Publishes Results from Hands-on Testing of the Dell EMC Unity 550F All-Flash Array and the Array of a Competitor

Durham, NC, March 15, 2019 –(PR.com)– In the midmarket space, IT teams often find themselves treading water just to stay afloat. In a new study released by Principled Technologies, engineers compared the storage performance, data reduction capabilities, and platform resiliency of a Dell EMC Unity 550F All-Flash array and the array of a competitor (“Vendor A”). This third-party evaluation can be useful for SMBs or departments that are operating storage stretched to its limits and looking for an option that will help them maximize storage capabilities.

According to the report, “The Dell EMC Unity array processed 40 percent more
input/output operations per second (IOPS), reduced 29 percent more data, and recovered from a simulated controller failure 36 percent faster than its competitor. It also carried out common management tasks faster, cutting deployment steps in half and completing bulk storage provisioning in 94 percent less time than the Vendor A array.”

Forget treading water – check out the all-flash storage array comparison report, infographic, or video to learn how the Dell EMC Unity 550F can help businesses continue moving forward: http://facts.pt/1mmyay4, http://facts.pt/yz4c18y, and http://facts.pt/q8xhz9g.
