ESG have just released a new validation paper about how well the XtremIO X2 platform behaves in a virtualized environment.

Abstract

This ESG Lab Review documents testing of the Dell EMC XtremIO X2 array with a focus on high performance and advanced features for today’s modern, virtualized environments.

The Challenges

There are more technology options than ever before, promising levels of functionality that will truly transform business. But while the vision is exciting, actually delivering is not so easy. The consumerization of IT has led to newly empowered users (as well as senior management) driving functionality requests, believing that anything is possible. This often leaves IT struggling to deliver in reality what the vision promises. It is not surprising, then, that in ESG research, more than two-thirds (68%) of senior IT decision makers believe their organizations’ IT environments are more complex today than two years ago.1 For today’s organizations that focus on virtual servers and desktops, private cloud, and hybrid clouds, this complexity can confound even the best intentions for high performance, simple management, and high availability.
