Why should retailers invest in all-flash storage arrays?

An all-flash array (AFA) is a storage infrastructure that contains only flash memory drives instead of spinning-disk drives. Flash has gone down in price considerably over the years, and boasts many inherent advantages in speed, space-per-capacity, and reliability over conventional hard disk drives. AFAs give retail businesses the data mobility and agility they need to power their own digital transformations.

People also ask:

1. What is NVMe storage?

NVMe (non-volatile memory express) is a transfer protocol for accessing data quickly from flash memory storage devices such as solid-state drives (SSDs) over a computer's high-speed Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) bus. Pure Storage FlashArray//X leverages the increased transfer speeds of NVMe over PCIe to provide a performant all-flash storage array.

2. What is retail analytics?

Retail analytics is data analytics applied to retail data. Online shopping apps, point of sales (PoS) systems, supply chains, customer relationship management (CRM) tools, and supply chain management apps all rely on the insights gained through retail analytics.

For businesses, big data can be a gold mine from which to extract a competitive edge. Unfortunately for most, this data is often locked in legacy silos, warehouses, and data lakes—slowing insights, restricting innovation, and complicating IT operations. Your ability to benefit from retail analytics is tied directly to the data mobility within your IT infrastructure.

3. How can IT leverage Pure technology to streamline their SQL workloads?

Like any Relational Database Management System, Microsoft SQL Server must consume compute and storage resources from the underlying hardware infrastructure upon which it is installed. As the complexity and volume of data needed by your business grows, so too does the strain on your physical IT infrastructure. If you’re still running a data lake filled with legacy storage silos powered by spinning-disk drives, performance bottlenecks are bound to occur.

Pure Storage FlashArray™ brings all the benefits of NVMe storage to the storage area network (SAN), including faster data transfer speeds, higher data throughput, and massive parallelism with over 64K queues for I/O operations. 99.9999% uptime on Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange with Purity ActiveCluster™ on FlashArray.
