These top enterprise all-flash array companies offer high performance products geared for customers with demanding workloads.
Enterprise Storage Forum’s recent survey revealed that although many respondents are investing in new storage technologies, the majority are not adding IT staff - creating big challenges.
The Enterprise Storage Forum survey uncovered the biggest challenges storage professionals have with their existing storage infrastructure: aging gear, lack of capacity, high operations cost, security, maintenance burden. We’ll discuss which storage technologies available or coming soon might serve to ease those pain points.
The Enterprise Storage Survey results show that the biggest storage budget line item is cloud storage, although HDDs still hold more data. We explore why cloud is inevitably winning, and when the actual tipping point might come about.
The results of the Data Storage Trends 2018 survey have implications for both IT and business units, as companies of all sizes struggle to strategically plan storage purchases in a fast-changing tech landscape.
The IBM FlashSystem 9100 combines flash and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) with IBM FlashCore in 2.5-inch SSDs, and IBM Spectrum Virtualize in a 2U storage system.
Pure Storage FlashBlade is scale-out storage for infrastructure that disaggregates compute, networking, and data storage. A broad range of data-intensive applications leverage this deployment model, from data recovery and data warehouse workloads to Spark and AI.
The IntelliFlash N Series flash array is a unified, NVMe storage system that accelerates applications. By incorporating non-volatile, solid state memory and NVMe interconnect components into its IntelliFlash storage systems, it delivers enterprise storage at near memory speeds.
NetApp's all-flash array line can be clustered to as much as 70 PB, which makes it a leader in its class. It is favored by companies that want storage volume with high performance and a breadth of data services.
Virtual Storage Platform a flash-powered solution for mission-critical applications. The scalability of the VSP F series goes to 34 PB of raw flash capacity and 4.8 million random read IOPS.
When buying enterprise flash, it's important to consider capacity, performance, availability and durability, among other factors.
The Dell EMC PowerMax, a flagship offering, is a new product that comes with rich NVMe features and top performance, at a price premium. Based on performance figures, those requiring the very highest in IOPS and throughput should look no further.
