Welcome to the Octorber edition of the Storage magazine e-Newsletter, which has a very technology-oriented focus while still being all about business. We feature a detailed breakdown of the arguments for and against the use of SSD in a SAN environment, where OCZ’s Joost van Leeuwen says: "By eliminating storage bottlenecks in an enterprise environment through the use of flash-based SSD technology, IT managers can achieve an increase in server utilisation, as well as a reduction in both SAN and maintenance costs. Cost-effective HDD commodity storage can be deployed for capacity, with the desired I/O performance and storage virtualisation enabled by SSD resources." Read his article and see if you agree.

We also take a close look at the growing demand for real-time analytics in business: how can emerging storage technologies help? Violin Memory's Michael Bradley explains: "Analysing Big Data is essential for many organisations, but in the financial sector there is another mission-critical dimension: timing. Rapid interpretation of data, which is ever-growing in volume, the speed it is generated at and its types, requires new levels of performance unattainable with legacy technologies."
