Data demands are pushing HDDs to performance limits, requiring IT decision makers (ITDMs) to find optimized alternatives.
All-Flash Arrays (AFA) consist of multiple flash memory drives to offer a better price-to-performance ratio.
As a result, data centers can move beyond their current limitations.
From SSDs to ecosystems
Save time and costs by adopting the Samsung AFA Reference Design. Samsung provides SSD optimization expertise for a faster design, validation and qualification process, in collaboration with original design manufacturing (ODMs) partners and independent software vendors (ISVs).
Samsung’s commitment reaches beyond supplying world-class SSDs. Our goal is to build a strong AFA ecosystem for ITDMs and partners.
Adopting SSDs for AFA storage systems over HDDs can significantly reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) with less capital expenditure(CapEx) and operating expense(OpEx).
