Hybrid Storage

What is Hybrid Storage?

Hybrid Storage describes storage systems that are designed with a blend of flash-based solid-state disk and mechanical disk drives in an effort to provide high performance at an affordable price.  However concerns about hybrid storage include access speed and latency, as well as fears around security, compliance and data portability. 

Pure Storage offers lower costs and higher performance, capacity, and agility than hybrid storage. All-flash arrays (AFAs) are not only revolutionizing storage with cloud-like application consolidation and agility, they are usually the more economical choice.
