    • How Much FLASH? Used dynamically with FAST Size of FLASH • Data follows a predictable decay in activity Amount of Data being created daily • Older data is constantly being replaced by new highly active data • The amount of FLASH FLASH Capacity required is determined by: – The amount of data created each day, and Number of Days of – The period of time it takes High Data Activity to coolthe competitive edge... © Copyright 2011 EMC Corporation.

    • How Much FLASH? 3 fundamental business questions • How much data is under management today? 50 TBs • How much is your data growing each year? 50% YoY • How long does your data stay hot? 60 daysthe competitive edge... © Copyright 2011 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 14
    • Calculating Net New Data Net new is a function of amount of “starting data” and “growth” 50% growth rate 80 • 50% of 50TB is 25TB 60 25 • The average amount of data 40 generated each day: 50 50 – 25 X 1024 GB / 365 = 20 70 GB per day 0 Start Year 1the competitive edge... © Copyright 2011 EMC Corporation.
