Wikibon: The IT Benefits of an All-Flash Data Center

ExecutiveSummaryAllFlashDataCenter-1024x696If you have an all-flash laptop, could you ever accept going back to one with a hard disk? Can you imagine having to remember to save data on your mobile device or all-flash laptop? How irritating is using software designed for hard disks and losing data when you forget to save? Could you, as a consumer, go back to using the magnetic storage used in your cameras, cell phones and music players a decade ago? When new technologies are first introduced, they are initially used to replace existing technologies. The second stage is when advanced users (and very occasionally new vendors) find new ways of using these new technologies to solve new problems never even conceived by the original technologists.

Wikibon has researched in depth the early adoption of flash storage by leading IT organizations, and concluded that best-practice use of flash necessitates a radical change in the way IT systems are organized, developed and architected. These changes will directly increase productivity for IT, the application end-user and the organization. The changes will also enable new business and organizational models and drive significant increases in productivity, value-add and revenue.
