NEW REPORT DETAILS PERFORMANCE NEEDS FROM IT MANAGER SURVEY
Do you really need the performance of an SSD? How much should a performance SSD cost? What have other IT managers found to be the right balance of performance and cost? Many find it difficult to determine which SSD or flash array to buy or even whether they can get the speed they need from standard HDDs.
Modern storage systems offer a dizzying rage of IOPS (from hundreds to millions), latencies, and capacities. This report probes these questions to yield considerable insight into these issues. By surveying over 180 IT managers and end users, Coughlin Associates and Objective Analysis have gained a deep understanding of the performance, capacity, and cost requirements of various applications including IOPS and latency, all of which are all spelled out graphically in this thorough report.
The results of this ongoing survey are revealing. Some applications have more rigid requirements than others, with needs varying according to the type of application. Since the survey is ongoing, this report will be updated in the future.
