Using Flash-Based Storage Without Compromising Transactions (or Performance)

Everyone wants fast write access, high performance, a smaller footprint, green IT solutions, and the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO). For these reasons, many organizations use solid state drives (SSDs) or other forms of flash memory instead of the traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). Flash-based storage is designed to provide extremely high volumes of input/output (I/O) with very low latency. The typical use cases for flash-based storage are virtual desktop infrastructures (VDIs), which require high I/O speeds when booting up, and databases, which need fast read access.
