Momentum as Demand for Hybrid and All
Flash Storage Solutions Fuels Record
Growth of 500%
Customers Across Education, Energy, Finance, Government, Healthcare, Manufacturing and
Retail Speak Out on the Benefits and Value of StorTrends Flash Storage Arrays
NORCROSS, Ga, January 06, 2015 /PressReleasePing/ - StorTrends® today announced the close of a record breaking year as sales for its storage appliances grew by 500% with the introduction of the StorTrends Hybrid (HFA) and All Flash Arrays (AFA).

StorTrends 3500i flash storage delivers the first and only storage area network (SAN) to combine solid-state drive (SSD) caching and SSD tiering into a single storage appliance.
Optimized to support VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix and RHEV enterprises of all sizes, the StorTrends 3500i is available as a hybrid or full flash array, and delivers dramatic enterprise performance and reliability at an extremely affordable price point.

“The flash-based storage market, which includes both AFAs and HFAs, is on fire. In the first half of 2014, the combined markets grew at noticeably higher rates than what IDC had forecast it to grow with previous projections. Individually, each market segment also outgrew our 2013 forecast projections,” said Eric Burgener, Research Director, Storage, IDC. “End users are learning that flash storage provides improved performance, higher reliability, longer endurance and compelling TCO when deployed at scale, as well as enterprise-class data services. Clearly, if you are an end user, you should be considering flash-based arrays when the time has come to retire your existing enterprise storage platforms.”
