Sponsored by Dell, Inc.

Making your storage perform to the very best of its ability is an age-old problem with a long list of ways to approach it. But how should you start to fine-tune a storage system and what do you need to know to get started?

This handbook covers a range of storage performance management issues and workarounds, from storage tiering and data archiving, to solid-state drive placement and reconsidering the role of tape. We'll explore all the aspects of storage performance -- RAID types, I/O loads, cache sizes -- and compare them so data storage professionals can access helpful information on a variety of performance topics depending on the size of -- and unique demands on -- their data center.
