200+ user needing all flash???!!!
200+ user environments needing all flash? For what kind of user? Power, knowledge or task workers? For someone that requires 25-100 IOPS on their desktop, would they even let you replace their laptop/desktop equipped with 8 cores & 8GB of memory? VDI is not the answer for all users/all use cases, the key is to have central management of the corporate image + data + access to applications for ALL use cases (people that have to have their own device/laptop, people that are knowledge workers that only use specific apps, contractors that come in and out). Care to elaborate more on complementing an all flash array with a traditional HDD one for IO intensive applications (in addition to svmotion migrate the critical apps to a flash datastore)? Apps that need intensive level of IOPS are most likely biz critical apps - for such apps, data protection and business continuity are also key. What are your suggestions for data protection & business continuity? Also, can you highlight what are important factors to consider in an all flash solution, to address write amplification effect on flash? Please don't just say write leveling by the controllers - that's not sufficient.
