Flash storage is accelerating time-to-information while also playing a key role in IT infrastructure transformations. These capabilities are key because today’s IT organizations face huge challenges—ever-increasing applications, virtualization, the cloud, and the rising value of stored information. The combined effect of these factors places pressure on IT infrastructures to increase performance and operate more efficiently while reducing costs.
As an emerging technology, flash storage is helping business and technology leaders address these issues by making their IT infrastructures more operationally efficient and speeding up end-user and customer-facing business processes. In comparison to conventional spinning disks, flash storage systems deliver remarkable performance when used where the business can benefit from improved application response times, accelerated access to information and increased power efficiency.
Flash storage deployed in solid state drives can also help businesses shrink their IT infrastructures. As few as 10 solid state drives can deliver storage performance equivalent to several hundred hard disk drives! This reduces storage footprints, power consumption and cooling needs. Beyond boosting performance and shrinking footprints, flash storage is also powerful enough to support an organization’s most demanding virtualized cloud environments—along with online transaction processing, client virtualization and business analytic applications.
