Webinar: How to Design a 92TB, 500K IOPS AFA for less than $95,000!

All-Flash Arrays are the model of inefficiency and as flash media increases in density and performance, the cost of this inefficiency becomes more obvious. Enterprise solid-state drives (SSD) deliver 70,000 IOPS per drive but most AFAs need 24 drives or more to achieve 70,000 IOPS. Those same systems also need high-end processors to move IO through them at those speeds. The cost of these systems is hundreds of thousands of dollars when in reality they should cost less than $100,000.

Register Now for Storage Switzerland’s and StorONE’s on demand webinar “How to Design a 92TB, 500K IOPS AFA for less than $95,000.”

In this webinar we discuss why their software bottlenecks current all-flash arrays. We explain how inefficient storage software requires vendors to use more powerful and more expensive CPUs, as well as a greater quantity of flash drives. We also explain why technology advancements like NVMe and increasing flash density will only make the situation worse.

Attendees of the webinar will receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s eBook “Why Does Storage Cost So Much – How to Dramatically Lower the Cost of Storage“.

George Crump is the Chief Marketing Officer at VergeIO, the leader in Ultraconverged Infrastructure. Prior to VergeIO he was Chief Product Strategist at StorONE. Before assuming roles with innovative technology vendors, George spent almost 14 years as the founder and lead analyst at Storage Switzerland. In his spare time, he continues to write blogs on Storage Switzerland to educate IT professionals on all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought-after public speaker. With over 30 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS, SAN, Virtualization, Cloud, and Enterprise Flash. Before founding Storage Switzerland, he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators, where he was in charge of technology testing, integration, and product selection.
