Solid-state storage systems are now being deployed for tier-1 applications, particularly in virtual application environments.

A pre-selection proof of concept or on-site vendor comparison can be a valuable tool as part of the selection process. However, it is critical to all parties involved that the POC is setup and run correctly and efficiently.

This session will review our recommendations after recently running a POC and reviews from several POC validations for solid-state storage in virtual application environments. We talk specifically about the tools and technologies required to perform a meaningful and valid POC efficiently.

Learning Objectives

POC Process - How to avoid alienating your CIO or your vendors
POC Technologies - Choosing the tools, technologies and tests to utilize
POC Evaluation - Communicating valid and meaningful conclusions from your POC
