Enterprise Strategy Group’s Mark Peters speaks on Skyera’s unapologetic breakthrough price per gigabyte for all-flash enterprise storage. ESG research demonstrates, TCO, the total cost of ownership, is categorically the key evaluation criteria used when selecting storage solutions. While sometimes talking about price is sometimes seen as something to be avoided, the truth is that whatever we like to suggest, storage is all about economics. Skyera is aiming to narrow or remove the price delta with its new array. Download ESG Whitepaper – Skyera: The New State of Solid-State?

The Software Behind The Flash Appliance

image description Play video

There is a stack of components that are required to create a SSD or Flash appliance. There is of course the NAND Flash memory itself, the flash controller which handles wear leveling and other flash management functions, the RAID to protect against flash component failure and then there are two services components; system services and data services. Typically the system services component adds functions like deduplication and compression. The data services component focuses on functions like graphical user interface, LUN mapping, clones and snapshots.

The Advantages of a Vertically Integrated Flash Stack

SSD and Flash appliances are made up of a stack of components that are combined together to deliver a single system that the user interacts with. This stack includes the actual NAND flash memory, the flash controller, the RAID engine, the system software (deduplication/compression) and the external software (GUI/Snapshots/LUN management).

The Hidden Cost of Networking SSD – George Crump, Lead Analyst, Storage Switzerland

Solid State Drives (SSD) are best known for two attributes. First they can solve many performance issues and second that performance comes at a significant price premium. As SSD becomes shareable flash systems there is a hidden cost to implementing flash appliances that often goes unnoticed, the cost to design and implement a network that can deliver the performance potential of flash based storage.

SSD Can Achieve HDD Price Parity – George Crump, Lead Analyst, Storage Switzerland

If data centers had the choice they would choose solid-state for 100% of their primary storage needs. The technology is power- and space-efficient and of course, brings unprecedented performance to today’s demanding applications and workloads. In this video George discusses how flash systems will need to achieve true price parity with HDDs to make the all solid-state choice easy for the data center. This price parity will have to come from tighter integration and innovation up and down the technology stack. The more of the stack that the flash system vendor owns, the faster they will be able to bring price parity to the data center.

Your storage requirements are growing both for performance and capacity. You are investing in 15K RPM spinning hard drives to maintain performance. You’re paying a cost per GB for total capacity but only a fraction is actually usable. These characteristics describe an unsustainable model and the problems Skyera exists to solve.
