Flash storage offers dramatic performance increases over traditional spinning drives, removing rotational delay and seek time. Additionally, flash can be easily added to and takes up a smaller storage footprint.
Hybrid array technology combines hard disk drives (HDDs) with solid state drives (SSDs) to improve I/O speed. With the ever increasing price-performance gap between HDDs and DRAM, hybrid storage arrays aim to add a non-volatile flash level to the memory hierarchy, providing a more cost-effective solution than solely using SSDs for storage.
We can advise you on how best to structure your storage depending on whether you simply need one SSD cache for some standard PCs, or whether you need to configure an entire enterprise storage solution.
