Still Thinking about Flash Storage?

Why Now Is the Time to Make the Move

by Jason Rivard | Thursday, September 29, 2016

By now, you probably know the big benefits of flash storage and solid state drives—faster, more reliable performance and quicker access to important data. But maybe your organization thinks it doesn’t really need that extra performance. Things are probably rolling along just fine in your old server closet.

Administrators are not looking though a single pane of glass, but rather through a kaleidoscope.
