EDITOR'S NOTE
There are many changes afoot for IT in 2015, and they all add up to a need for greater storage performance. In this month’s feature, "Flash Delivers Storage Performance for an Impatient World," NetApp Vice President of Product and Solutions Marketing, Lee Caswell, explains how flash storage pays for itself in server and software licensing savings.

Our second article, "Accelerating Database Performance with All-Flash Storage," focuses on storage for high-performance databases and demonstrates why the EF560 all-flash array is an excellent choice. Our third article, "Deploying E-Series for Enterprise Applications," helps you determine if E-Series is the right choice for your enterprise application storage needs.

We’ll be digging deeper into more performance use cases over the next few months. Stay tuned!
