Flash. Is this the light on my camera, a plugin for my browser, or a superhero that runs really fast?
If you’re in IT, flash likely refers to something else: flash memory of some sort. But even then, the term is both ubiquitous and vague. The solid-state drive in your laptop; the new memory in your z14; your new “all flash” storage array. These all boast “flash” technology that promises to make everything faster.
Flash technology is not new but reductions in price and advancements in capacity are exploding adoption. There are many compelling arguments for flash – but is it the solution to all storage bottlenecks? Take a stroll with John as we slow down the hype to explore the various implementations of flash technology and which, if any, can best speed up your datacenter. And don’t worry; I won’t be wearing a red, spandex suit.-John Baker-IntelliMagic
