This white paper focuses on the increasing importance of high availability as enterprises continue to build out a 3rd Platform–based computing infrastructure. As more mission-critical applications requiring extremely high availability are deployed on virtual infrastructure, enterprises must respond using the right storage solutions. The document identifies critical features in the storage infrastructure necessary to meet these requirements for availability and explores how one vendor, NetApp, meets them with its EF-Series AFA solutions portfolio.
This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.
NetApp has acquired SolidFire, and combined the performance and economics of all-flash storage with a webscale architecture that radically simplifies data center operations and enables rapid deployments of new applications. Hear IDC's view about the NetApp Flash Portfolio and the integration of SolidFire technology.
Flash success demands that critical questions be asked when choosing the right solution. Simplify your purchase cycle, lower costs and reduce the risk of technology acquisition. Download the Gartner report today.
“Are solid-state arrays (SSAs) worth the extra cost? This independent survey of SSA users found that their deployments provided a positive ROI after only 5.4 months, significantly faster than hard-disk drive (HDD) storage systems. Discover why Gartner strongly advises that SSAs be considered whenever HDD-based storage systems need to be replaced. Read the report: Solid-State Array TCO Reality Check.”
"Gartner: Moving Toward the All Solid-State Storage Data Center
Are you only using solid-state arrays for your primary data? If so, you’re missing out on the benefits flash can deliver to other applications, such as active archives, data lakes, and big data infrastructures. In this independent report, Gartner finds that progressive I&O leaders are already moving toward an all solid-state data center and predicts that others will soon follow. Read the report here."
