Executive Summary

It's no secret that the cloud computing market has been growing rapidly both for public and private deployments. Research from International Data Corporation (IDC) indicates that server sales for public cloud computing will grow to $718 million by 2014 and to $11.8 billion for private clouds during the same time period. IDC also projects public cloud services will grow rapidly at 30 percent per year, which is a 5x higher rate than global IT spending in 2011.2 With this impressive and continuing growth, one of the biggest challenges in cloud computing is how to solve the storage I/O bottleneck that comes with large-scale Virtual Machine (VM) deployments.
