Achieving $1/GB All-Flash Price Point

Choosing the right all-­‐flash architecture is becoming increasingly difficult in an expanding and mature market. At the outset of the availability of all-­‐flash systems, purchases were justified on application performance requirements that couldn’t be achieved using traditional HDD-­‐based systems. The market has moved on and reached a point where choosing all-­‐flash for all production applications is a viable proposition and that means being able to reach a price per GB ($/GB) figure that makes wide-­‐scale adoption of the technology financially acceptable.

Chris Evans from Langton Blue Consulting looks at the economics of all-flash storage and explores how Kaminario K2 can cross the $1/GB threshold for many enterprise applications.
