SlideShare: 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 latest eBook “Why Does Storage Cost So Much – How to Dramatically Lower the Cost of Storage“.

    Many professionals are losing jobs due to cloud computing when once server/storage/NW card prices slashes (example 20TB/250GB Memory/16Gbs network card @ 1K$) then all firms will buy to create private cloud in house to create lot of jobs. When your data infront of you server nothing like that it is well protected and secured. The focus how to create lot of jobs employment using private could in house.
