Flash Storage Feeds Need For Speed
If you are a solution provider whose customers need to squeeze every bit of performance out of their data center infrastructures, boy, do storage vendors have something for you.
SSD and all-flash storage array development has blossomed over the past couple of years, culminating in several major breakthroughs in the first half of 2015. These range from new 6-TB capacity points or NVMe performance for SSDs to major vendors like Hewlett-Packard and NetApp going head to head on price with their startup competitors. The past six months have also seen the introduction of software to turn mundane x86-based servers into all-flash arrays, as well as all-flash hyper-converged appliances.
CRN has been watching the developments carefully. Turn the page, and take a look at some of the coolest of those developments so far in 2015.
