Dell EMC XtremIO




Dell EMC XtremIO is a flash-based (SSD) storage solution, designed to push data to applications at higher speeds. As customers scale their infrastructure, storage can often be seen as the bottleneck when there is no insight into how applications are consuming resources—be it storage, compute, or network. By integrating Turbonomic with storage solutions, the platform is able to understand exactly how mission-critical workloads are consuming storage, as well as compute and network.

XtremIO’s building blocks are SAN appliances called X-Bricks. A deployment is organized into clusters of X-Bricks, and the clusters are managed by the XtremIO Management Server (XMS). Turbonomic connects to X-Bricks through the XMS. The XMS presents a unified view of each connected X-Brick cluster, rather than exposing the individual X-Bricks within each cluster. Within Turbonomic, each X-Brick cluster displays as a single storage controller with an associated disk array.

With it’s complete understanding of the application stack—from the logical to the physical—Turbonomic is able to then generate the right resourcing actions to ensure that mission-critical workloads get exactly the storage resources they need to perform. Every resource decision is made with an understanding of the full picture, not just one resource or layer of the application stack.
