• Changing market dynamics are driving many IT organizations to adopt an “all flash for primary storage” strategy. IDC discusses 4 ways All-Flash significantly lowers TCO to justify your move to transform IT with All-Flash.

  • 1

    Reduced hardware requirements

    Support workloads with 60–90% fewer SSDs compared to HDDs. A 200,000 IOPS system requires 10 SSDs versus 1,000 HDDs. Drive desired application performance with 5–30% fewer servers by moving workloads from HDD to All-Flash. Redeploy freed-up servers in other areas or buy fewer servers in greenfield deployments.

  • 2

    Lower software licensing costs

    Cutting the number of servers you need to buy is a huge benefit, but the real savings come from not having to license expensive software on those servers. All-Flash also offers a generous bundling approach that includes array software with the purchase price of the system.

  • 3

    Decreased energy and floor space requirements

    Less hardware equals big power, energy and space savings. All-Flash power savings over a four-to five-year lifecycle can be $50,000–$100,000+ for HDD-based systems requiring at least 80TB of provisioned storage capacity. All-Flash configurations also typically require less than half a rack versus several full racks for an HDD-based system.

  • 4

    Lower administration costs

    Reduce the time your storage administrators spend fielding performance complaints and tuning systems, from 20% of their time to as low as 0%. All-Flash automates common administrative tasks for ease-of-use. It’s vital to understand the impact these soft costs have on administrative productivity, span of control and response time to users to optimize your TCO
