Flash - Does size matter (performance)

Question asked by Keith Thuerk on Jun 16, 2016

Spoke to a SE friend at another Storage Vendor (guess which one)


He claimed that running several smaller Flash drives was more efficient than running a few large Flash drives. (For the sake of this discussion lets assume its flash vs flash not ssd vs flash or any other variant!)

His rational was overrunning the channel(s) support the flash offering.

I always approached the Flash discussion w/ concern for overrunning the controllers (Hybrid storage array) more so than the individual channels.


Any other thoughts on this I should consider? Or chalk it up as FUD and a sinkhole for time?
