The most important metric may actually be latency. The elimination of latency has become a top concern for customers and flash vendors. That has led to solutions that move flash performance into the server and on to faster buses like PCIe and now as we will discuss in our webinar, the memory bus itself. The purpose of this article is to clarify the difference between latency and IOPS.
