CloudSigma Chief Enterprise Solutions Officer Micheal Higgins to Provide Solutions for Storage Challenges in SNW Spring Session: “Beating Storage Bottlenecks in the Cloud”
PALO ALTO, CA – March 26, 2013 – CloudSigma, an international, customer-centric, pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, today announced that its Chief Enterprise Solutions Officer Micheal Higgins will be speaking at Storage Networking World Spring 2013 in the industry perspective session Beating Storage Bottlenecks in the Cloud, being held Thursday, April 4 at 4:50 p.m. ET.
Storage bottlenecks are among the top challenges in the cloud, often resulting from traditional, magnetic-based solutions’ inability to handle the randomized profile of I/O operations that result from the multi-tenant access of public clouds. By using solid-state drive (SSD) storage solutions, optimized networking and other optimizations in public cloud IaaS environments, such challenges can be directly addressed. These technologies, when correctly combined, have the ability to better handle the high volume random I/O operations that occur with server virtualization.

“High latency is a serious threat to storage capacity, performance and data access in public clouds,” said Higgins. “It’s detrimental to a business’ bottom line and also limits performance of other resources such as CPU and RAM. Successful use of SSD storage solutions in a correctly optimized IaaS environment eliminates these costly storage bottlenecks and inconsistent performance in the cloud. This delivers a platform for critical systems and applications that can then be backed by powerful SLAs. Overall, SSD storage and other technologies are now making cloud storage more practical and reliable, leading to greater performance levels and less performance variability.”
