All-flash arrays may differ on capacity, drive type, networking options and storage-savings features, but they all improve performance. However, comparing products to each other can be difficult, because vendors use differing configurations, workloads and block sizes to test their products.
Price is also tough to compare. Prices per GB vary among vendors based on their products' configurations and whether or not they factor in data reduction technologies such as deduplication and compression. Prices per IOPS are no easier.
Our all-flash array comparison chart provides an overview of all-flash arrays on a variety of important criteria that will help you decide on the right array for your needs. You will find information on storage architecture, flash type, array capacity, networking technology, warranty/support, and storage-saving and management features.
