VMblog Expert Interview: Navigating Data Store Challenges in 2023

Insights from Hao Zhong, CEO of ScaleFlux

Data center sustainability requirements drive storage innovation.

As enterprises evaluate the total costs of their infrastructure, there is an increased focus on improving sustainability along with price and performance. We see enterprises adding environmental footprint calculations to their infrastructure decision-making. Newer and more efficient data centers have the edge over aging facilities, and storage is an obvious resource to examine closely in this pursuit. In write-intensive environments, improvements in the lifespan of SSDs reduce waste and carbon footprint. Additional savings in power can be made by reducing unnecessary processing on the CPU, delivering on the performance and cost demands in the modern data center. […]
