How to buy a Flash Array below 20K

November 19, 2015

IBM

Flash Storage is the best solution for bottlenecks around Oracle workloads, applications, and databases.

A primary cause for inefficient databases is that they process information only as quickly as a storage solution can retrieve and digest it. As a result, inefficient storage can be a bottleneck, directly affecting business applications, performance and their ability to stay competitive. To solve this problem flash arrays and other flash storage solutions come into the picture.

Flash arrays and flash storage solutions support read and write-intensive environments, allowing more data to be processed faster for different tasks that are underway at the same time.

Now comes the hard part. Does my customer have the budget for a new flash array or other flash storage solution such as XtremeIO, PureStorage, IBM Flash or Netapp all Flash array?

What if we tell you below the line flash array and flash storage solutions can be purchased refurbished and originally IBM pre-owned for less than 30K for 24TB and 20K for 12TB?

9831-AE2 IBM FlashSystem 820
1x AF04 8 Gb FC 4 Port Ext Int
1x AF0F 24TB eMLC RAID 0 (12-pack)
1x AF0K RAID 5 Protection

1x AF04 8 Gb FC 4 Port Ext Int
1x AF0E 12TB eMLC RAID 0 (12-pack)
1x AF0K RAID 5 Protection

Give Infradax a call if you are interested in the above or other inexpensive refurbished flash array and flash storage configurations.
