Success Story: VCUHS
VCUHS IT management felt it imperative to standardize on a single vendor. "By then, IBM XIV was available," Johnson recalls. "We realized that it was either the best stuff since sliced bread or just smoke and mirrors. Our need was great, so we gave it a try. During the proof of concept, we tried every possible stress test we could think of, and in a mixed workload environment. The XIV system either matched or beat the performance on our existing arrays every time."
