SSG report: Solid state storage use cases
Enterprise Use Cases for Solid State Storage/Flash Memory
Enterprise solid state storage differs from consumer-grade storage in several ways. Flash storage can produce high speed operations at much lower power consumption than HDDs and in a much smaller data center footprint, reducing operating costs accordingly.
Read this whitepaper for some use cases where solid state storage provides performance advantages and can produce reduced costs due to performance or enable applications that you can’t using HDD technology.
