SlideShare: Getting Beyond Flash 101 – Flash 102 Selecting the Right Flash Array

IT professionals are convinced: Flash is the key to solving their storage performance challenges. The next step is selecting what flash makes the most sense for their organization’s specific needs. Do they need maxed-out flash performance for a highly transactional database? Do they need a flash array that is more cost effective and suitable for most of their mainstream workloads? Or do they need a flash array that is extremely cost effective and more suitable for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployment? Or do they need a real-time analytics processing engine where low latency response time is an absolute necessity?

The problem is most all-flash and hybrid vendors only offer one type of flash option, despite the fact that there are multiple use cases.

Join Storage Switzerland and Data Direct Networks (DDN) for this on demand webinar, “Getting Beyond Flash 101 – Flash 102 Selecting the Right Flash Array”. We discuss the different types of flash storage and compare them, why vendors want to replace your SAN instead of enhance it and what you can do to not only protect your current storage investments but also prepare a path to the future.
