Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research webinar titled “Performance and Beyond: An Objective Comparison of Enterprise All-Flash Platforms,” featuring Jim Miller, senior analyst of storage management at EMA.
Flash technology proves to be one of the most disruptive forces in the marketplace since virtualization. The technology resulted in a major shift of storage capacity from performance hard disk drives (HDD) to flash-based solutions. Although the primary value proposition of delivering high performance with flash is often what is first considered for flash solutions, there are several secondary benefits outside of application performance, especially now that the use of flash has expanded into primary storage. It is essential to understand how vendors compare to each other relative to performance and these secondary benefits.
In response to this need, Miller performed a side-by-side comparison of the following 11 all-flash platforms:
- Dell SC9000
- EMC XtremIO
- HDS VSP F
- HPE 3PAR StoreServ
- IBM A9000R
- Kaminario K2
- Pivot3 N5-3000
- PureStorage FlashArray//m
- SolidFire by NetApp
- Tegile T3800
The webinar is Thursday, September 8 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Those who wish to attend can register at: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/14609/220357
