Flash storage. It has been hailed as the new game-changing technology. By all accounts, flash replaced the hype of virtualization from 2007. Similar to the way virtual servers financially outperformed physical boxes, flash’s speed is unparalleled because it outpaces legacy spinning-disk drives exponentially. If spinning disk and flash arrays were to race, it would be like setting up a competition between a tortoise and a jet engine.
An inefficient storage environment can be the cause of many headaches, both inside and outside of IT departments. It disrupts the productivity of your entire company by slowing processing and data access.
A storage upgrade can be very complex, and there are a sea of options that lay before companies of all sizes. The goal is to hit that perfect-fit system. This system should fulfill your needs today, of course, but it should also have the ability to grow with your business.
