Everybody knows that solid-state storage runs fast and cool, and uses far less power than hard disk alternatives. And everybody knows that solid state is expensive, too. In this session, we will see where SSD can have the most impact in a storage environment, including looking at the various implementation alternatives. We will discuss the device choices and data placement choices you need to make when considering SSD deployments. We will also crunch the numbers with a financial breakdown of SSD implementation and help you determine if solid state is cost effective for your company, taking into account newer technologies like automated tiering that make solid state a more viable alternative in some cases.
Included in the presentation will be results from various SSD lab tests conducted at the Demartek lab.
