Enterprise Flash Array Storage Software Overview
What is Enterprise Flash Array Storage Software?
Enterprise flash array storage software, also known as a solid-state storage disk system, uses only flash media for persistent storage. Flash memory is an alternative to the traditional spinning hard disk drives that were the core technology of older networked storage systems. Flash storage is much faster than traditional disk storage, and it uses less power. It also takes up less physical space, is less prone to mechanical failure and is significantly quieter.

Flash array storage pricing has been falling in recent years. It is now nearing parity with hard disk drives. The traditional way to compare storage pricing is $/KB, or the cost of storing a single GB of data. However, real cost for the enterprise is much higher due to variability in platform hardware and software costs. This is still a useful place to begin as it provides a basic comparison metric. However, keep in mind that this is just a starting point, and that there is a range of available features that can greatly affect the overall price.
