Besides traditional spinning hard drives, flash technology has gained broad acceptance as a storage medium since 2013. The reasons for this are the fast read and write rates, compact size and low energy consumption. The use of this type of storage media is particularly recommended for CPU-intensive, big-data applications with a relatively low data volume, as it satisfies the needs of employees and management alike. Nevertheless, the rule is: The entire construct must be considered for the use of SAP Hana and in-memory technology. For this reason, companies, such as HDS, offer converged infrastructures – servers, storage, network and management in one unit. The smooth interaction of the components and complete automation are more important than a pure flash memory installation.
