True Hybrid Flash Storage Can Save Costs Overall for High-Performance Databases

Hybrid flash/disk storage systems, in which data is written first to a flash cache in the server and then later peculated to a traditional storage array, can provide significant direct savings in environments supporting more than 700 IOPs per Tbyte. And hybrid arrays can benefit SMBs as well as large enterprises. Those are the primary conclusions of an in-depth Wikibon research project into performance differences between true hybrid storage and traditional arrays with read-only cache, presented in David Floyer’s latest report, “Hybrid Storage Poised to Disrupt Traditional Arrays.”
