Evolving Workloads Driving the Emergence of New Storage Platforms

IDC White Paper - Flash Optimized

Are you ready for data at scale? Requirements for performance, scalability, reliability and availability are evolving, necessitating newer storage architectures that are both cost effective and more efficient. In this report, IDC analyst, Eric Burgener, reveals what IT leaders should know about storage for evolving workloads and introduces the new enterprise storage workhorse -- a flash-optimized storage platform -- designed for managing data at scale without breaking the bank.

  • Flash-optimized storage architectures will quickly take over from legacy platforms that were originally designed only around HDDs
  • Hybrid-flash arrays are the better option for customers that want to effectively consolidate both primary and secondary applications on a single storage platform
  • Infinidat's InfiniBox is a good example of the type of newer storage architecture that will become the enterprise storage workhorse of record for consolidated (i.e., primary and secondary) environments
