MUMBAI, INDIA: The holidays are approaching. Here in India, houses are getting decorated for the upcoming Dusshera and Diwali; the wish lists have been prepared and the shopping craze for gifts has begun.

Similarly, in IT, there’s always plenty of room for improvement. So if your data center were to write a wish list, and asked for some improvements in the coming year, I’m pretty sure Flash would be it.

Here are a few reasons why:
•    Get more from existing hardware: You don’t need a new data center to get steep performance improvements. Flash-based hardware and software work with your existing infrastructure.

•    Its greener: You need far fewer SSDs than HDDs to meet your performance requirements.

That means far fewer racks and systems. Beyond that, SSDs consume a fraction of the power that HDDs require and they generate much less heat. That means your data center can be energy efficient requiring less space, electricity and cooling.

•    Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (WS03) end of life: Moving to newer versions of Windows server software means you need to inspect your infrastructure for an entirely new set of applications and workloads.

Any technology refresh should deliver better performance, simplicity, scale and reliability – and to do that in a more cost-effective and flexible environment flash is your most powerful choice!

•    Sleep better knowing your data is safe: Your data center wants reliable hardware that keeps data intact.

Say goodbye to unpredictable mechanical failures of spinning hard drives and say hello to enhanced endurance and data reliability with enterprise flash technology.

•    Because your virtualization manager will thank you: If your virtualization manager is contending with response times during boot storms and antivirus scanning, the I/O blender effect or other high-latency events, Flash is here to the rescue.

With an array of hardware and software options you can make your virtualization manager’s holiday season better with blazingly fast performance and greater densities to support many more simultaneous VMs. Thus your users will thank you, too.

With all these good tidings I wish you and your data center a great holiday season filled with Flash!!!
