Logicalis US IDs Six Ways Flash is Changing the Storage Landscape
by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2014

NEW YORK, July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ In situations where the fastest possible access to data is required trading floors, for example CIOs have traditionally turned to flash-based storage systems. No one disputes the performance advantages of flash over traditional disk or tape storage methods, but cost has always been a barrier to a wider adoption.

To help CIOs determine if flash might be the right solution for their companies, Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), has created a free, downloadable white paper, 'Changing the Speed of Business,' and has outlined six key reasons flash storage makes sense for fast access to mission-critical data in mainstream applications.
