  • Flash technology debate: All-flash or hybrid?

    It didn't take long for a handful of startups to roll out all-solid-state storage arrays. Falling flash prices, and space-saving techs like dedupe and compression, let those vendors compete with traditional storage systems. As more vendors offer all-flash products, a debate is brewing over whether all-flash is too much flash technology and if hybrid arrays that mix flash with spinning disk storage can deliver more bang for the buck.

    Backup is still job No. 1, and verifying how well a backup ran is still a challenge. Our second feature discusses how data protection management apps offer a detailed look at a backup environment with success/failure reports that reveal unprotected data.
