KPIT Technologies has deployed EMC’s XtremIO all-flash scale- out enterprise storage array to deliver massive I/O (input/output) performance for its virtual desktops. By installing XtremeIO, KPIT can now provide 10 times the performance of its previous infrastructure on a small data center footprint, in turn improving the performance of the company’s applications. By reducing the response time for both office-based and mobile users, KPIT’s workforce has increased its flexibility and overall productivity, resulting in a positive impact on customer service levels. The scale-out architecture of XtremIO would enable KPIT to double the number of virtual desktops in the next 12 months.
KPIT is the first enterprise in India to implement EMC’s Vblock architecture for its private cloud and rolled out 1,500 virtual desktops in 2010. EMC has enabled KPIT to further expand this number— with XtremIO—which provides millions of IOPS from a very small footprint. KPIT’s virtual desktop environment will now run exclusively on XtremIO while the Vblock and EMC VSPEX will support mission-critical applications. EMC’s XtremeIO’s revolutionary internal architecture completely eliminates complex setup and tuning setup, while inherently delivering maximum performance. With the capability of getting the job done with less flash capacity, XtremeIO arrays are surprisingly cost effective and, therefore, an ideal solution for server virtualization, Data Base and Analytics.
With savings in data center space being a top priority, the inline data deduplication and compression built into the EMC XtremIO enables KPIT to optimize its space more efficiently, while gaining greater usable capacity. XtremeIO’s powerful array-based snapshot and cloning technology not only creates perfectly instantaneous and space efficient volume copies, but also allows limitless leverage. With XtremIO, KPIT no longer needs to analyze the trade-offs of capacity, performance, and data center space.
