  16. 16. 2015 Flash Memory Summit 16 IT Strategy
  17. 17. 2015 Flash Memory Summit My company's storage strategy for frequently- accessed data from our core business applications is: 17 All data is stored in our own data center(s), managed by a managed service provider. Some data is stored in our own data center(s), managed by a managed service provider -- some is stored in the cloud. Some data is stored in our own data center(s), managed by our IT organization -- some is stored in the cloud. All data is stored in our own data center(s), managed by our IT organization
  18. 18. 2015 Flash Memory Summit My organization uses the following SSD strategies (select all that apply): 18 Other (don't know) Server-based flash because our software defined storage software uses only server-based storage. Use server based SSD because it is closest to the processor thus offering the absolute best performance Use disk-based storage because SSD is too expensive Use SAN based SSD arrays because the performance is much better than disk-based SAN arrays and it can be shared by all servers Add SSD to disk arrays because we trust our disk array products and vendors, and we are familiar with how to deploy and manage them 2015 2014 2013 2012
  19. 19. 2015 Flash Memory Summit My organization plans to completely replace HDDs and deploy SSD as primary storage: 19 Not sure/don't know Other Never. It will always be more expensive than HDD and be used only for applications which can justify the added cost When SSDs are the same $/GB of HDDs When SSDs are within 10% of the $/GB of HDDs When SSDs are within 20% of the $/GB of HDDs When SSDs are within 30% of the $/GB of HDDs When SSDs are within 40% of the $/GB of HDDs When SSDs are within 50% of the $/GB of HDDs 2015 2014 2013 2012

  27. 27. 2015 Flash Memory Summit 27 IT Preferences
  28. 28. 2015 Flash Memory Summit The most strategic (irreplaceable) component of a complete SSD storage solution is the: 28 Other SSD driver and device management software The SSD controller within the hardware system. Storage management applications such as auto-tiering, de-duplication and thin provisioning. SSD hardware system System availability applications such as snap-shot, replication and path management (failover). 2015 2014 2013
  29. 29. 2015 Flash Memory Summit The following type of server most driving the adoption of SSD in my environment is: 29 Other VoIP servers eCommerce app servers Video servers Email servers Analytic app servers Web Servers File servers Virtual Desktop Servers Virtualized servers with an aggregation of I/O from multiple VMs/applications Database servers 2015 2014 2013 2012
  30. 30. 2015 Flash Memory Summit When I purchase HDD and SSD storage, I factor in compression, de-duplication and thin-provisioning to calculate my price per "usable" gigabyte: 30 Other Never, I just compare basic price per gigabyte Absolutely, every time Sometimes, if I'm comparing systems with and without 2015 2014 2013
  31. 31. 2015 Flash Memory Summit The most important feature of an SSD for my environment is: 31 The type of NAND Flash (MLC or SLC) The brand of SSD Controller (Intel, LSI/SandForce, etc.) Other The same brand as my existing storage systems The cost per IOP The endurance in terms of number of writes Interoperability with existing storage systems and software Cost per gigabyte Performance (IOPs) 2015 2014 2013 2012
  32. 32. 2015 Flash Memory Summit My organization's strategy for SSDs vs. High RPM Drives: 32 Other Not sure/don't know Continue to use high RPM drives for I/O intensive workloads Completely replace high RPM drives with SSD for I/O intensive workloads Replace high RPM drives with SSD for select workloads 2015 2014 2013
  33. 33. 2015 Flash Memory Summit SSDs with the following type of NAND Flash are best suited for my environment: 33 Other Triple-level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND for higher capacity and lowest cost Don’t know Single-Level Cell (SLC) for highest performance and write endurance Multi-Level Cell (MLC) for lower cost 2015 2014 2013 2012
  34. 34. 2015 Flash Memory Summit My experience with SSD so far (all that apply): 34 So far my SSD systems have been less reliable than my HDD-based storage. Other Managing an SSD is just as much hassle, if not more, than managing HDD-based storage I've had in the past. My SSD has not performed as well as they said it would. I have no experience with SSD I estimate the total cost of ownership of my SSD is actually less than my HDD-based storage. Managing an SSD is less hassle than managing HDD-based storage I've had in the past. I estimate the total cost of ownership of my SSD is more than my HDD-based storage. So far my SSD systems have been as reliable or more reliable than my HDD-based storage. My SSD performs just like they said it would. 2015 2014 2013
  35. 35. 2015 Flash Memory Summit What I value most from SSDs is: 35 Management is simplified because I don’t need to load balance HDDs Other Management is simplified because I don’t need to configure LUNs with different quantities of HDDs needed to accumulate the IOs needed. Service is simplified because SSDs don’t fail as often like HDDs do Management is simplified because I don’t need to configure HDDs with different speeds. System availability is higher because SSDs don’t fail as often as HDDs do Deployment is simplified when I meet my I/O performance needs with one SSD versus many HDDs 2015 2014 2013 2012
  36. 36. 2015 Flash Memory Summit A substantially longer warranty period for SSD storage systems is a strong indicator that SSD technology is more reliable than HDD storage systems. I believe this is: 36 Other Absolutely true Somewhat true Not true 2015 2014 2013
  37. 37. 2015 Flash Memory Summit I believe the warranty periods for all-flash arrays are: 37 Other Don't know Shorter than the warranty period for disk arrays Longer than the warranty period for disk arrays The same as the warranty period for disk arrays
  38. 38. 2015 Flash Memory Summit 38 New Technology
  39. 39. 2015 Flash Memory Summit This best describes where I'm at with adoption of these new flash storage related technologies: 39 Memory Channel 3D NAND/TLC DSSD Hyperconverged systems Software defined storage NVM Express (NVMe) I have not heard of it. _% _% _% _% _% _% I am aware of it, but I have no interest. _% _% _% _% _% _% I have heard of it, but I have not investigated. _% _% _% _% _% _% I plan on evaluating it / products using it. _% _% _% _% _% _% I am evaluating it / products using it. _% _% _% _% _% _%
  40. 40. 2015 Flash Memory Summit I see Software Defined Storage as a technology that: 40 Other Is an inseparable feature of an enterprise storage "solution" Not sure/don't know Will emerge as a class of storage virtualization software separate from the storage hardware--and more important than the commodity storage hardware. 2015 2014 2013
  41. 41. 2015 Flash Memory Summit Some SSD products are "programmable" so they fit into a software defined storage environment. Other SSD products have most functions embedded in the controller hardware. What is best for my organization in the future is: 41 Other Programmable SSD for flexible software defined storage -- and we will do the programming Programmable SSD for flexible software defined storage -- but we want vendors to do the programming in their apps Controller hardware based SSD for a more plug-and- play storage. 2015 2014 2013
  42. 42. 2015 Flash Memory Summit There are different types of Flash Memory (MLC, SLC, TLC, etc.) with new characteristics that define how it works in the data center (wear leveling, write endurance, etc.): 42 Other I don't want to know that much about flash memory technology -- but I feel I need to do a deep dive to understand what I'm buying in the future I don't want to know that much about flash memory technology -- and I will rely on my storage vendor to have a deep understanding of the technology. I have already done a deep dive into flash memory technology and am very familiar with it. I want to know about flash memory technology and intend to do a deep dive into the technology. 2015 2014 2013
  43. 43. 2015 Flash Memory Summit There are different types of Flash Storage systems (All Flash Arrays, Hybrid Arrays, PCIe cards, etc.) with new characteristics that define how they work in the data center (software defined vs. plug-and-play SSD, captive PCIe vs. shared PCIe SSD, permanent storage vs. cache, etc.). storage vs. cache, etc.). I: 43 Other Don't want to know that much about flash storage systems -- and I will rely on my storage vendor to have a deep understanding of the right system for the application. Don't want to know that much about flash storage systems -- but I feel I need to do a deep dive to understand what I'm buying in the future. Have already done a deep dive into flash storage systems and am very familiar with them. Want to know about flash storage systems and intend to do a deep dive into their architectures. 2015 2014 2013
