White Paper: INFINIDAT
The extensive benefits of digital technology are clear, but the risk associated can be alarming, as massive cyber attacks and data breaches affecting the well-known organizations continue to make headlines.
The issue of security is explicitly important when it comes to all-flash arrays, because external solid-state drives are more vulnerable to file-recovery attacks compared to internal drives. While most AFAs offer disk-level encryption, that is the only level of encryption they allow. If data is encrypted anywhere else, the AFAs cannot perform data reduction and the entire economics of AFAs break. AFAs have to rely on data reduction (in a ratio between 3:1 and 6:1) to minimize the price premium to a point where it is affordable.
This white paper explores how choosing a storage array that relies heavily on data reduction limits the organization’s ability to protect its data and prevent data breaches.
