What is Flash Storage?

Any device or system that uses flash memory is described as flash storage. Flash media has powered a consumer revolution in smartphones and a plethora of other devices, as well as in solid-state drives (SSDs) for personal and business computing. Flash memory has transformed enterprise storage in data centers: flash-based enterprise storage offer higher performance, more efficiency, and greater reliability than disk-based storage.

Enterprise-grade storage arrays are purpose-built to take advantage of the unique characteristics of flash. These all-flash arrays (AFAs) are revolutionizing storage by offering cloud-like application consolidation and unprecedented agility – features that serve as catalysts for both IT and business transformation. Pure Storage remains a leader in this market, as highlighted in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant and the Gartner Critical Capabilities reports for Solid-State Arrays.
