In this white paper, IDC examines EMC's FLASH 1st strategy - Find out how organisations that leverage such solutions will benefit from an efficient, agile, easy-to-manage, and scalable storage infrastructure.

Designing a storage environment to scale for both capacity and performance used to be somewhat mutually exclusive. Armed with new discoveries on data life cycle, including a phenomenon known as "data decay," storage vendors such as EMC are tackling this problem head-on. At their disposal are newer generations of optimisation and automated tiering technologies that leverage Flash/SSDs.
