Mark your calendars for Wikibon's next Peer Incite ... Tue, December 18th!
Recorded video / audio from the Peer Incite:
In order to be competitive and maximize market opportunities, providers of cloud and managed-hosting services must be able to leverage multi-tenancy, while guaranteeing service levels. Multi-tenancy, lowers cost, enabling hosters to deliver cost-effective services, while making a profit, but services delivered from a shared infrastructure can be impacted by “noisy neighbors” that compete for shared resources. This has lead hosting providers to be cautious regarding the service levels they will guarantee and the types of workloads they pursue. Tier-1 applications may be the holy grail for both hosting providers and their customers, but getting there without the hosting provider allocating dedicated resources has been a challenge.
ViaWest is a leading, privately-held hosting and managed services provider, operating 24 data centers in the U.S. As the company continues to grow, it is seeing significant demand for Tier-1 application support. These applications have both low-latency and a high degree of intraday and interday variability. Until recently, ViaWest could only meet the requirements of I/O-bound Tier-1 applications by using dedicated hardware, be that SAN, DAS, or dedicated shelves, each of which had drawbacks ranging from cost to scalability.
- What are the limitations of traditional storage arrays in multi-tenant environments?
- Can hosting providers avoid dedicating specific devices to specific customers?
- Can IOPS be provisioned like capacity?
- Can cloud-hosting providers cost-effectively deliver guaranteed IOPS in a multi-tenant environment?
- What are the benefits and risks associated with moving Tier-1 applications to managed hosting providers
