This Lab Validation Report documents the results of recent hands-on testing of Dell EMC Isilon All-Flash storage. Testing focused on the platform’s performance and scalability and how it enables organizations to support more applications and workloads with flash based on their ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data.
FlashBlade fabric modules implement a unified network that connects all blades to each other and to the data center network. With full connectivity, all blades can serve as client connection endpoints, as authorities that process client requests, and as storage managers that transfer data to and from flash and NVRAM.
The tremendous growth of unstructured data is creating huge opportunities for organizations. But it is also creating significant challenges for the storage infrastructure. Many application environments that have the potential to maximize unstructured data have been restricted by the limitations of legacy storage systems. For the past several years—at least—users have expressed a need for storage solutions that can deliver extreme performance along with simple manageability, density, high availability and cost efficiency.
There’s no question about it: purpose-built all-flash storage is an exceptional catalyst for improving data center operations and supporting the transition to the cloud operating model. AFAs’ highly strategic role in both IT and business underscores the need to move storage purchase discussions and decisions beyond the storage team. IT leaders who want to see their organizations reap AFAs’ benefits—performance improvement, productivity gains, and cost savings, among others—should actively define their AFA strategies and oversee storage-related decision making, thus treating storage like the newly strategic asset it has become.

Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage —driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation.
Pure Storage all-flash storage arrays provide enterprise customers with a safe, secure and smooth path to the all-flash cloud. You can take the journey in stages, starting small with a single application or two, and then adding more applications through consolidation and virtualization. You can also implement multiple stages at once.
Opportunities to truly innovate are rare. Yet today, flash technology has created the opportunity to not only deliver massive I/O performance, but to transform ease-of-use, array capabilities, and business value. Welcome to the all-flash storage array from EMC XtremIO - where unimaginable performance is only the start.
This IDC study provides detailed insights into the rapidly growing market for enterprise storage systems that leverage flash storage media. This study segments this market into the following two technology segments: AFAs and HFAs. Insights into these two market segments are provided historically. Market shares and IDC analysis are provided for each of the top vendors in these two segments along with detailed market-level analysis.

Flash Storage for Dummies, NetApp 2nd Special Edition, describes the many uses and benefits of flash storage technology in the enterprise. From flash-accelerated storage to all-flash arrays, flash technology improves performance and increases reliability in storage infrastructures.
This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.
This white paper focuses on the increasing importance of high availability as enterprises continue to build out a 3rd Platform–based computing infrastructure. As more mission-critical applications requiring extremely high availability are deployed on virtual infrastructure, enterprises must respond using the right storage solutions. The document identifies critical features in the storage infrastructure necessary to meet these requirements for availability and explores how one vendor, NetApp, meets them with its EF-Series AFA solutions portfolio.
In the current landscape of modern data centers, IT professionals are stretched too thin. Triage situations are the norm and tend to reduce the time spent on strategic business objectives.
