Flash durability in action: 16TB cache for faster write response

By 2020, Gartner projected that 50% of data centers will use only solid state arrays for primary data, instead of hybrid arrays—up from less than 1% a year ago. Why?

The low latency, high availability, and improved IOPS of all-flash is an attractive option for those who need reliability and performance at scale.

This convenient resource breaks down the technical features of VMAX All Flash. Download now to use all-flash for your workloads to gain:

  • Up to 4PB of total effective capacity
  • 16TB cache for faster write response and increased flash durability
  • 350 microsecond sustained response time
  • Active/active replication for transparent RTO/RPO and instant failover
  • And more
