Making Flash Storage Work
April 5, 2017
In November, we sat down with our resident tech expert, Jim Griffiths, to get his insights on flash storage. Now, we’re revisiting flash storage to dig a little bit deeper into how it can benefit your business.
No matter how you slice it, many businesses are intimidated by the often high costs of investing in flash storage. However, taking advantage of the latest developments in data storage requires longevity of thinking. Flash storage has the potential to reduce the overall cost of data ownership. If you’re considering implementing flash storage into your business’s data storage model, here are a few things to consider:
- Faster data retrieval: flash storage offers much faster data retrieval than traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs). For operations in your business where accessing data quickly is important, flash storage can add up to time (and money) saved.
- Reduced latency spikes: Data latency refers to the length of time required for a business to retrieve data from its storage site (whether this storage is offsite or cloud-based).
- Hybrid solutions: Flash storage, like many developments in IT, does not have to be an all-or-nothing solution! Flash storage can be implemented for high-speed operations, while any existing HDDs in your business can handle large capacity data storage where speed is not crucial. Regardless of a business’s needs, a hybridized solution can be custom-tailored to fit.
