Balancing Performance And Cost: Hybrid Flash Arrays

Customers looking to take advantage of the performance boost offered by flash storage while keeping the majority of data on spinning disks are counting on hybrid storage arrays as the answer. Unlike earlier arrays where flash was used as a write cache to improve performance, hybrid storage arrays use a large flash tier as primary storage for part of their live data, and move the data to spinning disks within the same array as it becomes less-often accessed.

CRN, as part of its Storage Week 2015 feature with a focus on all-flash vs. hybrid flash storage arrays, gathered the latest all-flash arrays from 13 vendors ranging from small upstarts to the largest legacy vendors.

For a look at all-flash arrays, see the slide show posted this week that covered 11 offerings.
