  • All-flash vs. hybrid flash storage arrays: Which is right for you?

In those cases, an all-flash array may be overkill. However, hybrid arrays may not satisfy the performance demands of every organization. Because of this, interest in all-flash arrays is growing.

    Today's all-flash arrays offer the functionality that storage managers have come to expect of enterprise storage products, such as deduplication, replication and thin provisioning. As the price of all-flash arrays continues to drop, it is likely that many shops will consider them a valid option.
