Why the flash storage is right for you
First, what is flash storage and why is it different than other storage.
Flash storage is a solid-state technology that uses flash memory chips for writing and storing data. As indicated by its name, flash memory can achieve very fast response times (microsecond latency), compared to hard drives with moving components. It uses non-volatile memory, which means that data is not lost when the power is turned off. Flash storage is highly available and uses less energy and physical space than mechanical disk storage.
There are a variety of flash solutions on the market today designed to fit every size of business and budget, from entry-level to enterprise. But managing storage for a modern business environment involves more than just hardware. In fact, strategic storage choices are often more about the software foundation you select.
Look for a software-defined flash solution with an open, end-to-end architecture that can be deployed in any environment. This flexibility will help you modernize today’s workloads and save time and money by reducing complexity of management, monitoring and virtualization.
