The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.

Are solid-state arrays (SSAs) worth the extra cost? This independent survey of SSA users found that their deployments provided a positive ROI after only 5.4 months, significantly faster than hard-disk drive (HDD) storage systems. Discover why Gartner strongly advises that SSAs be considered whenever HDD-based storage systems need to be replaced. Read the report: Solid-State Array TCO Reality Check.

The technical and financial advantages of solid state drives are driving a rapid transition from hard disk-drive (HDD) and hybrid-flash array (HFA) storage systems to all-flash arrays (AFAs). The white paper identifies some of the key considerations for evaluating all-flash storage infrastructure for three major uses cases: standalone applications, virtualized applications, and next-generation cloud services.

NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate.

This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.

Database users are increasingly interested in using Flash-based solid-state drives (SSDs) to speed up application performance. For many database administrators (DBAs), increased database performance directly impacts their user experience and bottom lines. Accelerating a single MySQL instance may allow DBAs to avoid painful sharding exercises, with all their attendant administration, application changes, and high capital and ongoing costs. With the wide range of SSDs available today, choosing any one can be difficult. This paper aims to answer the question, “Is it better to use slower SATA SSDs in RAID or a faster PCIe SSD to scale up MySQL database performance?"

Solid state storage is increasingly deployed in all sizes of datacenters, from the small and medium business to the large enterprise. It comes in many forms including hybrid arrays, direct attached drives, PCIe flash and accelerators that fit somewhere in between servers and storage. With the price of flash continuing to drop, hybrid storage is becoming more compelling to the small and medium business for critical computing applications such as databases and day-to-day operational computing.
