451 Research: The Business Value of Simplicity


All-Flash Storage Benefits are Transformative

451 Research surveyed 253 enterprise IT decision-makers responsible for storage technology decisions in order to quantify the business impact that Tier 1 storage had on organizations. In the study, they found that a majority of the companies surveyed (52% of respondents) had to cancel IT projects due to problems associated with their Tier 1 SAN-based storage arrays. IT organizations that were impacted by poor performance faced a number of key issues, including customer loss, transaction loss and damage to their organization’s reputation. 

This research note concludes that high performance provided by all-flash arrays and their ability to deliver consistent performance without requiring time-consuming maintenance and tuning operations should be emphasized when making the case for an all-flash array deployment.
