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.
The key to buying the right all-flash array for your needs is to know what your needs are and to ask the AFA vendor the right questions so you’ll get accurate answers. Before you make your flash buying decision, ask your sales rep these twelve key questions.
