"Flash has permeated enterprise storage in small, medium-sized, and large enterprises as well as among webscale customers like cloud and service providers. It is available in a variety of different system architectures, including internal storage, hyperconverged and converged platforms, and shared storage arrays. Revenue driven by shared storage arrays, of both the hybrid flash array (HFA) and the all-flash array (AFA) type, is much larger than from other segments today and will continue to dominate enterprise storage spend through at least 2020."

The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems. In IDC's view, flash is an absolute requirement for performance reasons in any 3rd Platform computing environment. While most understand the need for flash performance, there is still a subset that does not view the broader use of flash in the enterprise as cost effective

Consolidating to a flash-optimized infrastructure results in 50% to 80% fewer drives being deployed. This, along with the need for high performance and agility, has propelled flash to have one of the highest growth rates within the storage industry. Learn how the combination of flash-optimized architectures and cloud have changed the storage requirements for mixed workloads that are common among most organizations.

As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.

As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two. Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) — it is flash-driven architectures.

All-flash storage is on a strong growth trajectory, but the industry is not swooning naively over the blazing fast I/O speeds. Most IT managers are talking a mature, step-by-step approach to all-flash adoption. Falling per-gigabyte prices are making the technology more commonplace. Solid state drives are no longer just for specialized, high-performing tasks. Before they leap, however, storage professionals want to understand the full business picture as they formulate a winning strategy for putting all-flash storage to use for more workloads. This paper offers insights for business success with all-flash storage based on IT Central Station reviews. Real users weigh in on what it takes to get the most out of the technology. It covers such aspects of flash storage as the need for simplicity and the importance of flexibility. The paper also looks at how to build a business case for all-flash and think through the implications of issues such as integration with existing infrastructure.

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.

Although the cost of flash storage solutions continues to fall, on a per-gigabyte capacity basis, it is still significantly more expensive to acquire than traditional hard drives. However, when the cost per gigabyte is examined in terms of TCO, and the customer looks past the pure acquisition cost and accounts for “soft factors” such as prolonging the life of a data center, lower operating costs (for example, power and cooling), increased flexibility and scalability, or the service levels that a flash solution enables, flash solution costs become increasingly competitive with spinning media.

Database users are increasingly interested in using Flash-based solid-state drives (SSDs) to speed up application performance. For many database administrators (DBAs), increased database performance directly impacts their user experience and bottom lines. Accelerating a single MySQL instance may allow DBAs to avoid painful sharding exercises, with all their attendant administration, application changes, and high capital and ongoing costs. With the wide range of SSDs available today, choosing any one can be difficult. This paper aims to answer the question, “Is it better to use slower SATA SSDs in RAID or a faster PCIe SSD to scale up MySQL database performance?"

The all-flash array (AFA) market has undergone significant maturation over the past two years. A high percentage of customers have already committed to an "all flash for primary storage" strategy, and every customer interviewed for this study was among those. In 2017, AFAs will drive over 80% of all primary storage revenue. All of the established storage vendors have entered this space, and there are several start-ups with over $100 million in revenue. With this level of market maturation, multiple segments have developed within the primary flash array space. There are systems targeted for dedicated application deployment, there are systems specifically for web-scale applications, and there are systems intended for dense mixed workload consolidation. These latter systems are driving most of the AFA revenue, and they aspire to become the primary storage platforms of record for enterprises of all sizes. This study evaluates the suitability of 10 vendors' AFA platforms for dense mixed ent
