Webinar – Hyper-scale Nightmare -The Potential Consequences of using Consumer-grade Flash in the Data Center

Hyper-scale data centers (and many enterprises as well) face relentless pressure to contain costs. One way to lower those costs is to use consumer-grade solid-state drives in their scale-out server architectures, instead of the enterprise-class SSDs that are routinely used in these environments. This strategy can lower the initial cost for flash drives, but can have other undesirable consequences that cause real, long-term problems. In these high drive-count infrastructures, deploying the wrong flash can cause a nightmare scenario of:

  • Inconsistent Performance of non-enterprise drives
  • Poor Reliability of non-enterprise drives
  • Replacement of failed drives – adds cost, disruption
  • Management of mixed drive environment – can be complex
  • High Cost – of abandoning alternative SSDs altogether

Protect yourself and watch our on webinar “Hyper-scale Nightmare -The Potential Consequences of using Consumer-grade Flash in the Data Center” featuring Storage Switzerland Founder, George Crump and Shawn Worsell, Director of Product Management at OCZ/Toshiba.
