Ask us if all-flash arrays are right for you!

Flash systems, contrary to popular opinion, are not a storage cure-all. In fact, it can be a tricky balance deciding whether or not your business will actually benefit from an all-flash array, or whether it will simply be a waste of money.

Use this expert-guide to figure out if your workloads are right for flash storage, as well as explore 5 additional factors to consider before adopting a flash solution.

  • Storage Buyer's Checklist: Solid-State Storage Arrays

    Solid-state storage in arrays has changed from an impractical, high-end feature to a performance-boosting option that's widely available. As such, there are more options on the market - so, more opportunities for confusion or a misinformed purchase.

    Check out this exclusive SearchSolidStateStorage.com Essential Guide to get an expert, hype-free explanation of solid-state storage arrays - including key purchasing considerations, architectures and deployment options, and a buyer's feature checklist.

     

  • All-flash data center for tier 0/1 workloads: Evaluating AFAs

    The waves of all-flash array (AFA) innovation are three-fold: the first was all about raw app performance; the second, evolving the economic appeal.

    Now, in the third wave, the focus switches to adapting ecosystem support to enable AFAs on all tier 0/1 workloads for the all-flash data center. But what about the temporary shortage inflating prices?  

    In this report, the Taneja Group deconstructs one of the leading AFAs on the market— HPE 3PAR StoreServ—which includes multi-controller scalability, a highly-virtualized data layer with three levels of abstraction, and adaptive data protection.

    Read on to delve into these features and more, and learn how and why this AFA promises to accelerate the final wave of the much-anticipated all-flash data center for tier 0/1 workloads (despite the flash shortage).
