Making the case for solid-state storage

Interest in solid-state storage is high, and with a variety of solid-state implementations available and newer technologies emerging, it's time to take a serious look at how solid state could enhance your storage environment. Data storage professionals considering solid-state storage have myriad solid-state storage architectures to consider, including systems that use solid-state drives (SSDs) in various form factors, caching implementations and appliances. If that wasn't enough to ponder, those planning on implementing these systems need to decide whether to use a product that mixes solid-state storage and traditional disk drives, or to use SSD-only storage subsystems. But perhaps more important than just choosing the hardware, enterprises need to decide what data to put on solid-state storage or consider using some form of software automation to move the data onto solid-state storage to make the most efficient use of what is still a somewhat expensive resource. Deciding what data to place on solid-state storage and how to put ...
