Standard hard disk drives (HDDs) are spinning disks, and their mechanical actions can create a delay in data retrieval. More recently, solid-state disks (SSDs) have brought about an exciting improvement in disk technology - made of silicon memory chips, with no moving parts, SSDs have no rotational delay and near-zero seek time - dramatically reducing overall response times. Today, another evolution in storage is on the horizon that can bring even further benefits to your data center: automated tiering.

Check out this white paper for a brief technical introduction to storage tiering and its implementation. You'll learn exactly how tiered storage works, and how to determine if it's the right strategy for your organization. Finally, you'll receive recommendations on how to evaluate available tiered solutions and determine which will best meet your needs. Read on to learn more.
