Flash Memory is becoming the King of the Clouds for Data Centres

18th July 2016

Cloud computing is everywhere, with research by the International Data Corporation predicting that cloud computing will eat up almost half of the IT infrastructure market by 2019. This doesn’t mean that flash memory will become redundant any time soon.  Flash based storage is now increasingly replacing traditional media for key applications in data centres, with large arrays designed to replace traditional enterprise storage media.

Flash technology is essential for both hybrid and public clouds to ensure high performance, and to process applications quickly. It also plays a vital role in data centres facing enormous data growth and demand for ever more sophisticated requirements.  Clouds need high-performance, low-power, and compact-sized storage to operate more efficiently.

This key topic will feature widely at the forthcoming Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara in August.   This summit is now the world’s largest event featuring the trends, innovations, and influencers driving the adoption of flash memory in enterprise storage applications, as well as in smartphones, tablets, and mobile and embedded systems.

Cardwave, an expert in flash memory, can help storage designers understand the role flash plays and can work with data centres to navigate to the right solution which meets their storage needs now, and in the future.

If your organisation has yet to determine whether flash storage systems are an ideal addition to its data centre, Cardwave can work with you to evaluate your requirements and offer the most cost effective and relevant solution for your needs.

Cardwave is multi-award-winning company working with customers of all sizes across the world, providing specialist expertise to organisations who need to secure and distribute data.  The business provides value-add services, end-to-end project management, and consultancy solutions, and has positioned itself as one of the market leaders.
