AFAs ensure storage is an infrastructure bottleneck no more

As businesses develop their infrastructure and applications, they find that storage is frequently the main bottleneck affecting the customer experience. Traditional storage input/output (I/O) is insufficient for the fast processors and networks being deployed.

Because storage needs are ever increasing, systems have to step up their breadth of capabilities—even flash.

In this 12-page buyer’s guide, Computer Weekly experts address your capacity concerns and look at:

  • The race to develop memory products to meet rocketing data processing needs
  • New approaches to storage as all-flash arrays face ever-rising demand
  • How to maximize your storage investment
  • Key performance attributes of storage media, and how IT leaders can get the best out of it
  • And more

  • All-Flash: The Essential Guide

    Computer Weekly keeps its finger on the pulse in the world of data storage, with regular news, features and practical articles. This guide offers a comprehensive survey of the all-flash array market. We look at all-flash products from the big six storage vendors and the startups and specialists. Plus, we give the lowdown on all-flash vs hybrid flash arrays and all-flash vs server-side PCIe SSD. Finally, we look at the shortcomings of measuring the value of flash by metrics designed for spinning disk and suggest practical alternatives.

  • Focus: PCIe SSD, NVMe and flash

    PCIe SSD cards fit straight into PCIe slots in servers and array hardware and often brings much higher performance than traditional HDD-format flash drives. A key use case is to provide fast access storage in the server, with the shortest possible route and therefore low latency for important data. That’s still a key workload for PCIe flash, especially with NVMe now offering huge performance gains over existing SAS and SATA drive protocols, with some vendors now also building arrays with PCIe format drives that use NVMe.
