Flash is quickly emerging as the preferred way to overcome the nagging performance limitations of hard disk ddrives. However, because flash comes at a significant price premium, outright replacement of HDDs with flash only makes sense in situations in which capacity requirements are relatively small and performance requirements are high. Learn how deployment approaches—including hybrid storage arrays, server flash, and all-flash arrays—that combine the performance of flash with the capacity of HDDs can be cost effective for a broad range of performance requirements.
This informative guide represents months of rigorous research that your organization can leverage to kick start its evaluation process. Read on to learn which private cloud array will qualify as best-in-class for your company.
Flash Storage for Dummies, NetApp 2nd Special Edition, describes the many uses and benefits of flash storage technology in the enterprise. From flash-accelerated storage to all-flash arrays, flash technology improves performance and increases reliability in storage infrastructures.
The NetApp EF550 all-flash array provides a robust platform for delivering exceptional performance to mission-critical applications. The EF550 flash array leverages the latest in solid-state disk technologies along with a strong heritage of handling diverse workloads and providing superior business value through the acceleration of latency-sensitive and high-I/O applications.
NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate.
In this White Paper, IDC examines the evolution of storage controllers, from traditional HDD controllers to "hybrid array" (i.e., traditional storage arrays that can accommodate flash drives) controllers capable of optimizing flash media and multi- core CPUs.
This White Paper provides information on how Flash is now rapidly and violently disrupting the disk status quo, and not just, or even mainly, because it is fast. Yes, the early integration of SSDs into a storage strategy was all about accelerating specific workloads, followed by getting a better overall balance of price/performance in external storage arrays.

“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."

Think you can’t afford flash?
Think again. If you’re looking to make a primary storage investment in the near future, you can’t afford not to consider an
all-flash or converged flash array. HPE offers the only architecture on the market that is flash-optimized without being flash-limited—so you won’t have to make business-limiting decisions when it comes to implementing flash, such as inserting a new silo into your environment or undergoing painful hardware rip-and-replace.
Financial institutions need to consider a broad array of key business case components, beyond fraud loss reduction and fraud-management operating costs, when examining the business ramifications of various fraud-prevention technology approaches.
Aberdeen research has shown that when organizatins harneess the power of Flash, they are able to more effectively implement a digital transformation, build hybrid infrastructures,
and gain increased agility and competitive advantage. In this eBook, we’ll explore how leading businesses can better their future with flash arrays that are Predictive, Cloud-Ready, and Timeles..
