DCIG is pleased to announce the November 17 release of the DCIG 2015-16 Sub-250TB All-Flash Array Buyer’s Guide that weights, scores and ranks more than 100 features of nineteen (19) arrays from ten (10) different storage providers. Using ranking categories of Best-in-Class, Recommended, Excellent, Good and Basic this 49 page Buyer’s Guide offers all of the information an organization should need to make a highly informed decision as to which all-flash arrays will suit their needs.
This snapshot of the AFA marketplace focuses in on arrays with a maximum scale-up or scale-out capacity of less than 250TB. The AFA’s in this guide have lower maximum capacities than some AFA’s, but small capacity does not equate to low performance. In fact, most of the arrays in this Buyer’s Guide are from the flash storage startups and are focused on exploiting the low latency possibilities of flash for maximum acceleration of critical workloads.
DCIG’s succinct analysis provides insight into the state of the all-flash array (AFA) marketplace, identifies the significant benefits organizations should look to achieve through an AFA implementation, identifies key features organizations should be aware of as they evaluate AFA’s and provides brief observations about the distinctive features of each array. Ranking tables enable end users to get an “at-a-glance” overview of the AFA marketplace; and DCIG’s standardized one-page data sheets facilitate side-by-side comparisons that enable organizations to quickly get to a short list of products that may meet their requirements.
Registration to access this report via the DCIG Analysis Portal also includes access to the DCIG Interactive Buyer’s Guides (IBG). The IBG enables organizations take the next step in the product selection process by generating custom reports, including comprehensive side-by-side feature comparisons of the arrays in which the organization is most interested.
