When IT implements flash, especially all-flash, there is a general sigh of relief. They think the installation will solve all of their problems. But at least one problem remains…humans!
Users and even IT professionals (also human) occasionally make a mistake that puts data at risk. And flash systems need protection from that eventuality. As Storage Switzerland’s W. Curtis Preston shows us in the below video, the good news is all-flash arrays also enable new data protection capabilities.
At the heart of the problem is all-flash arrays raise user expectations. They start to get instant response time and assume that every part of IT should be that fast. Recovery, as Curtis points out, is a prime example. But meeting these new expectations also means that IT must become more proactive and be able to predict failure before it even happens. After all, the fastest recovery is the one that IT eliminates long before it ever occurs.
