Dell EMC are proud of their all flash offerings, understandably so as they are the unquestionable market leader in All Flash Array offerings with the widest portfolio of All Flash products groupings.
In recent times the interest in All Flash Storage has been significant, but is it just hype? Performance figures suggest not. Tests by Dell EMC show application response time improvements from 20 milliseconds to 2 or 3 milliseconds after moving to flash. In tests on Oracle databases, Dell EMC showed user i/o wait times decrease from 11milliseconds to 1 millisecond.
Sounds impressive, but what does this mean for your business?
The technical performance of flash translates into tangible and significant business benefits that contribute to a company’s bottom line. The “speeds and feeds” quoted above actually deliver impact that can increase revenue, such as more customer transactions per second, higher employee to customer interactions and improved insight and decisions derived from big data analytics.
Most companies are currently going through their own digital transformation. In short this means that their business is becoming data driven and built on digital platforms. This in turn means that customer experience is based on response time they get from the applications that become the electronic customer facing end of your business. Flash is not only critical to powering applications that consistently and reliably deliver response times that meet customer expectations. Flash alo powers agile and speedy development environments that enable digital based business to constantly evolve and improve. Digital business that remains static dies, it must evolve quickly in response to customer feedback. Flash delivers data at speed to enable this to happen.
We are living in an age of Digital transformation where IT is no longer enabling the business, instead IT has become the business. Dell EMC surveyed 4000 executives and found that due to digital transformation 48% have no idea what their industry will look like three years from now and 92% see digital business initiatives as critical to their success.
