Performance or agility? On-prem or cloud? All flash or flash hybrid? In a world of choices, enterprises have been forced to make big trade-offs.
Data growth, demands for data access and IT complexity make it a challenge to choose the right platform for the variety of today’s data. As flash arrays improve on-premises performance and enable fast data access, enterprises are also moving quickly to the cloud. Tough questions remain about the role of flash in the new world of enterprise storage.
Join us on May 19 as we host a Twitter chat about how we expect to see that role develop. The chat, which you can follow using the hashtag #StorageDebate, is a place to share perspectives, questions and arguments about the road ahead for enterprise storage.
Our guest this month will be Howard Marks, DeepStorage founder and industry expert. Howard will be joined by cloud and storage experts and ClearSky founders, Ellen Rubin and Laz Vekiarides, to tackle a question burning for so many enterprises: “Is this the age of the all-flash believer?”
What do you think: Is the future of data storage all about flash or flash-heavy hybrid? Or, neither? #StorageDebate
