Many times faster than legacy spinning disk arrays, All Flash Arrays (AFA) have been widely adopted for demanding use cases where consistent ultra-high performance storage is needed to service the most demanding workloads. However, despite all their performance advantages, concerns about the cost and enterprise capabilities of early Flash technologies has limited AFAs adoption as primary storage. While past concerns may have been valid, recent innovations in AFAs have outstripped past perceptions.
Some would say that AFAs are no more than a blip in the evolution of storage technologies, while others point to a near term tipping point where the cost of Flash will fall below that of spinning disk making it the de facto standard for both Tier 1 and Tier 2 storage. Join Gigaom Research and our sponsor Kaminario for “All-Flash Arrays for Primary Storage: The time is now” a free analyst webinar on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 at 10 a.m. PST that will seek to clarify the role of AFAs in the data center today and into the future while debunking the myths that are standing in the way of broader adoption.
