Hybrid Flash Storage
We see that most organizations compare price/performance when choosing between different systems, thus some solution would be considered too expensive for the type of workload needed to run. Choosing the architecture has until now been a choice of performance/price or price/performance.
With the introduction of Hybrid Flash Solutions (HFS), companies may now benefit from the speed from SSD ($/IOPS) and a cost-effective way to scale from HDD ($/GB).
Top priorities when choosing HFS architecture
- Integration: It is important to understand which tools are accessible for integration as it will help accelerate application performance.
- Capacity: Understanding applications’ future needs for capacity is key to understand if Hybrid Flash is the right way to go. This will allow for a cost-effectively scalability and secure the business case.
- Workloads: Understating the present and future needs for workloads will help identify the different requirements for the workloads.
