All -flash arrays are increasingly popular for enterprise workloads. With high performance rotating media, customers typically buy enough STORAGE DEVICES to ensure they can achieve their required IOPS, and the resulting capacity is almost always more than sufficient. However, flash-based STORAGE DEVICES exhibit the opposite economics. Capacity is expensive, and once the array has sufficient capacity the all-flash media often has far more performance than the customers require. For this reason, customers are motivated to trade off some performance for increased capacity efficiency.
This extension allows arrays to demonstrate they are capable of enterprise-grade data reduction.
