Primary Flash Market Evolving to Next-Generation Architectures

Thumb original idc for next gen arch en 2017

As the information technology (IT) industry enters the cloud era, where hybrid IT is the dominant deployment model in organizations of all sizes, the capabilities of primary all-flash arrays (AFAs) will need to evolve to handle cloud scale and agility. Datacenters of all types and sizes will be using AFAs as general-purpose storage platforms more and more and will be increasing the workload densities that these systems must support. A key challenge is that current-generation AFAs have fundamental bottlenecks that both limit their consolidation and cloud-scale capabilities and create architectural risk as future memory technologies emerge. A next generation of AFAs — what could be called cloud-era flash arrays — will be best positioned to meet these requirements cost-effectively, will employ flash- driven rather than flash-optimized architectures, and will have NVMe rather than SCSI technology at the heart of their designs. This Technology Spotlight examines the evolving primary flash array market with a particular emphasis on what next-generation flash-driven enterprise storage architectures will look like. It also looks at the role Pure Storage, with its FlashArray//X, plays in this strategically important market.

UK Smart Government 2019 Data-Driven Transformation

Modern governments across Europe must orchestrate an evolving array of services and functions required to support millions of people, often with a pressure to “do more with less” and under the glare of public scrutiny.

The pressure to harness technology to transform is as evident in government as it is in any modern organisation, although the complexity and reach of government is arguably more significant. Ongoing uncertainties around Brexit are likely adding to the challenge of transforming operational models and efficiency.

UK Smart Government 2019 Data-Driven Transformation - Research Report

Transitioning to citizen-centric service delivery, Brexit planning, implementing new digital services and adopting an evidence-based policy development are all transformational undertakings for the UK government and its departments. Thankfully, they all have one critical success factor in common: data. It is the fuel of digital transformation and without fast, always-on access to data, everything will stall. By everything, we mean all data-driven ambitions from the development of new models of service delivery that improve the quality of public ...

Determining the Total Cost of Ownership: Comparing Serverless and Server-based Technologies

The popularity of a serverless strategy is growing because it provides the opportunity for faster time to market by dynamically and automatically allocating compute and memory based on user requests. It also provides cost savings through hands-off infrastructure management, which enables organizations to redirect IT budget and development resources from operations to innovation.In 2019, we introduced a framework for comparing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for both serverless and server-based applications, factoring in infrastructure, develo ...
