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

Does All-Flash Array Software Improve Performance?

The raw performance of a single enterprise flash drive is often higher than 70,000 IOPS. Most all-flash arrays, even though vendors fill them with 12 to 24 flash drives, deliver only a few hundred thousand IOPS. The cause of the

SlideShare: Data Center vs. Cloud: Advantages of On-Premise Storage

A compelling reason to move applications to the cloud is how easy providers make storage management. To the users, cloud storage seems frictionless. They just “order-up” the capacity and performance they need, and the cloud gives it to them. Behind
