IT leaders are required to deliver improved performance and increase efficiencies while maintaining an enterprise-class infrastructure for their customer’s database environments. A complete portfolio consisting of flash in the storage controller, flash in disk shelves, and all-flash arrays is the best way to solve complex database performance requirements at multiple levels in your environment. The NetApp flash portfolio is capable of solving database performance and I/O latency problems encountered by many database deployments.
In this ESG white paper, the capabilities and common characteristics of flash implementations are categorized as “bronze”-, “silver”-, and “gold”-type approaches, depending on the degree to which they enable fully featured storage systems. It evaluates how HP’s storage delivers the basics and follows with a series of flash-specific optimizations and advances that we’ll call “gold standard” flash capabilities, after which it hints at HP’s vision of the future for their flash storage architecture. Throughout the paper, the importance of both IT architecture and business implications is emphasized.
