Tips For Evaluating Solid State Arrays.
With the introduction of enterprise-grade all-flash arrays, conventional thinking about storage has been turned on its head. For example, a recent Gartner study, found that all-flash storage
pays for itself in just five to six months on average, the result of dramatic improvements in total cost of ownership (TCO)
Gartner reported that operating expenses for administration, power, space, cooling, and maintenance were all significantly reduced. Reductions in software licensing costs
and improvements in IT productivity were also contributors.
Identify some of the key considerations in evaluating all-flash storage infrastructure
for three major use cases: standalone applications, virtualized applications, and next-generation webscale architectures.
This guide will help you understand what’s important and help you evaluate storage options based on the most important selection criteria.
