In this white paper, IDC lays out the huge gap between the performance and cost capabilities provided by HDDs and that provided by SSDs. This gap can be served by a new storage category, which IDC calls Big Data Flash. IDC assesses InfiniFlash, the first storage system in the category.
This white paper shows how InfiniFlash presents significant performance improvements over standard HDDs, and a choice of flash-accelerated solution architectures to resolve many scale-related issues related to traditional HDD-based deploymnet models for Hadoop.
