Searching for data storage solutions can be overwhelming. There are numerous disk-based & flash options in the marketplace. And since studies show that one of the wisest investments a company can make is in it’s storage infrastructure, finding the best solution to give your company the strongest competitive advantage is a daunting challenge. Key factors in the decision-making process include cost, performance, and flexibility. When addressing these factors, flash is the ideal solution in satisfying all your data management requirements.
Factor #1 Cost
Budget constraints are a major consideration in the decision making process. Flash is cost-effective on many levels:
• Power efficiency – flash modules use less power than hard drives, thus having lower energy expenses
• Storage installation – flash storage requires less space and is quick to deploy, thus lower expenses on space and management requirements
• Computing resource – flash can support larger workloads with greater speed, thus eliminating overall IT expenses
Factor #2 Performance
Simply put, flash is fast. It uses fewer resources and improves efficiencies by offering data reduction technologies with functions such as pattern removal, deduplication and compression. Flash is able to eliminate storage-related infrastructure bottlenecks to support larger workloads. With flash storage, you get better performance without sacrificing speed or scalability.
Factor #3 Flexibility
Data continues to surge, making storage management an ongoing challenge. With new procurement options, flash allows for cloud-like economics and flexibility in adding storage as needed. Flash installs quickly, minimizes administration, and flexes to meet changing workloads. Planning for the future is difficult with uncertainties; flash allows for flexibility in meeting requirements for today and tomorrow.
