Expects All Solid State Storage Systems to dominate primary storage purchases in the next three years

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 24, 2014. Solid State Technology has become an integral part of addressing storage needs for IT Enterprises. There are a wide variety of architectural implementations for Solid State Storage Systems, which can cause confusion over their value and performance in different environments. To help reduce this confusion, Evaluator Group has expanded its Solid State Systems coverage to now include Product Analyses of major and leading start-up vendors. Product Analyses are deep-dives into product architecture and advanced features with commentary from Evaluator Group on perceived strengths and weaknesses. The IBM FlashSystem Product Analysis is available for free with registration.

“Over the next three years Evaluator Group expects Solid State Storage Systems to be the architecture adopted for primary storage,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Partner & Analyst at Evaluator Group. “Performance to reduce latency and improve consistency, along with reliability and efficiency functionality will drive this change. It is important IT end users understand the trade-offs of design and technical implementation to best suit their needs.”
