AFAs that eliminate the previous data reduction limitations

Already Adopted Flash Storage? Get Ready for the Next Generation

Cover

It wasn’t that long ago that many ITDMs longed for the day when all-flash arrays (AFAs) would offer the combination of performance, capacity and economics necessary to support intensive virtualization, analytics, and cloud workloads.

Though recent developments have pushed these AFA capabilities into fruition, the transition from HDDs and even hybrid HDD and flash calls attention to a requirement previously unaddressed by AFAs: data reduction.

This custom article addresses the previous limitations of AFAs, and discusses at length how data reduction techniques have evolved—performed at the app-level instead of the drive-level—so that AFAs can turn off data reduction when it is not needed. Read on to see how AFAs can benefit your organization in this regard.
