Due to the demands of business applications and workloads, flash storage has seen a rapid increase in adoption by leading businesses. This is evident in cloud storage as well as local storage. Today’s all-flash storage systems help enterprises improve both the economics and performance of their workloads. They deliver significant improvement in input/output (I/O) performance.
One of the top flash designs recommended is the NetApp® FlashRay™ system. FlashRay improves the economics and performance of flash technology. It also delivers efficiency, protection, and data management. This is all-flash storage that provides more value for the storage dollar.
Here are four key benefits of the innovative NetApp® FlashRay™ system:
• Accelerate multiple types of workloads with adaptable performance architecture. Increase effective capacity up to 20X without decreasing performance.
• Satisfy variable workloads with consistent sub-millisecond latency, high IOPS, and massive throughput.
• Leverage patented ‘always-on’ inline data efficiency features—such as inline deduplication, inline compression, and thin provisioning—increase effective capacity with no performance impact.
• Enable byte-granular compression and predictable performance across different I/O sizes with variable-length block layout. Realize maximum savings through byte-granular compression.
Documentation and GUI are localized in six languages. This allows data to be managed with ease internationally using the localized GUI, familiar CLI, and REST API.
Flash will become the standard for enterprises as long-term IT strategies evolve. Get to know flash and get ready to rock your data center with a foundation that will enable integration and the ability to leverage future solid-state technologies and drive down the cost of storage.
