SSD technology is currently the star of the storage world, dazzling the marketplace with its astonishingly high performance. For the majority of storage environments, the cost/benefit profile of SSD solutions just does not make economic sense.

Sophistication of hybrid storage technology allows organizations to leverage the speed of SSD that would never merit the daunting cost of an all-SSD solution…or even the premium prices commanded by some primary HDD storage.
