PowerStore is an outstanding choice for Arc-enabled SQL MI because it fills all the performance and feature requirements of Arc-enabled SQL MI. Most important is performance. PowerStore all-flash design provides high-speed and sub-millisecond response times which are crucial for Arc-enabled SQL MI performance. Arc-enabled SQL MI deploys as a contained availability group and a shared backup target is a recommended best practice. File storage is a great option for this. PowerStore and its combined block and file capabilities make it one of the few storage appliances that can fulfill this requirement with a single system. Therefore, you can either use a single PowerStore appliance for both high performance block and file or add up to four PowerStore appliances to a single cluster for even greater scalability, capacity, and performance.
The Dynamic Resiliency Engine (DRE) is a software-based approach to data redundancy that is more distributed, automated, and efficient than traditional RAID. DRE ensures that storage is resilient to component failures within the storage appliance and therefore increases availability in mission-critical environments.
Thin provisioning and data reduction features ensure that data is stored in the most efficient manner to optimize space efficiency and make provisioning easier. This allows storage to be generously provisioned at deployment without concern for wasting space.
