Welcome to the SolidFire Infrastructure
Consumption Continuum

Your step-by-step guide to choosing your next generation infrastructure

STEP 1
Use the Infrastructure Consumption Continuum
Selecting your next infrastructure is never simple. What tradeoffs are you okay making and what does that mean for your future infrastructure? We call this situation the Infrastructure Consumption Continuum.

Find out which infrastructure model is best suited for your needs by clicking your two most important priorities below.

Click two of the five priority boxes below (Ease of Implementation, etc.). Your first click will eliminate — grey out — two infrastructure models that do not meet your needs. Your second click will reveal the two models best suited for you. Start over after two clicks by clicking a new priority.

Please visit the Infrastructure Consumption Tool from your desktop to experience the full functionality of the tool.
