Firstly, to be clear, we’re talking about flash of the hardware variety, not the software behind those annoying animated ads. This is one of those topics that everyone has heard about, most people have opinions on, but in which myths and misunderstanding are rife.
In this webcast we talked through the different forms of flash technology, but also spent some quality time looking at the requirements and scenarios in which you’re most likely to be interested in flash as an enterprise or smaller business, particularly when it come to your data centre.
Along the way, we challenged common misconceptions to do with practical issues such as the cost and lifetime of devices, and contrary to popular opinion, we illustrated how high performance flash-based systems are far from an expensive luxury. Deployed in the right place, in the right manner, there are an increasing number of scenarios in which flash can allow new service level demands to be met for substantially lower costs than traditional spinning disk alternatives.
