Abstract: 

Flash storage is becoming important factor for both consumers and in the enterprises. Benefits of flash storage are many, but much higher cost of flash storage as compared to traditional storage is making it hard to justify financially buying of the flash storage. What many storage customers don’t necessarily realized that price per megabyte or gigabyte of capacity is outdated model and it does not represent true cost of storage. Many enterprise consumers of storage keep buying more and more hard drives, not to satisfy capacity requirement, but to satisfy performance requirement, but when total cost of ownership is taken into consideration, flash storage becomes very competitive with much smaller footprint, cooling and power requirements. There are also certain workloads, which can benefit tremendously from using flash storage and those will be discussed in this presentation.
