StorageShort: The Strength of Disk vs. Flash

It seems that some all-flash vendors are quick to write off hard disk drives (HDD) with some even pronouncing HDDs dead. But disks have a role to play in the data center and even for primary storage. HDDs still have a price per TB advantage over flash and HDD do very well for sequentially written data. In this StorageShort join Avere Systems CEO, Ron Bianchini and I as we discuss the role of HDDs in the flash era.

One of the ways to cost effectively create truly an all-flash data center is to leverage the cloud for data that is more appropriate for hard disk use. The key is to manage the movement of data to and from the cloud in a seamless fashion. In our On-Demand webinar Ron and I discuss exactly how to make this happen.
