Flash begets Flash

Solid-state storage continues to be adopted across IT, delivering not only performance benefits, but also other key data centre benefits such as reliability and longevity. In terms of the overall storage environment, however, flash still has room to grow, as storage decision makers currently perceive that solid-state-level performance is only required by a subset of their workloads. These findings are amongst the results of a recent survey by the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), an integrated IT research, analyst, strategy, and validation firm.


VMware 'elevates' the Hybrid Cloud experience
