Abstract: 

All-Flash Arrays have to overcome two key obstacles when trying to gain acceptance as storage systems which can be utilized across a wide number of use cases in the data center. First, they must be durable and secondly, they must be cost effective. The challenge is that one of the most common methods for increasing durability, overprovisioning, actually increases the cost of the All-Flash Array. While valuable, this technique needs to be used sparingly so the All-Flash Array can achieve price parity with the hard disk-based enterprise solid state storage systems they are hoping to replace.

Learning Objective

This presentation delineates how Software Defined Storage is evolving, the role of open computing and interplay with software defined datacenters and the impact of software defined storage on future architectures in enterprise data centers and cloud mega-data centers
