For example, he said, multiple hard drives could be replaced by a single solid-state offering. Currently, "data you don't need that often is on slower drives, and needed data is on faster drives," Handy said. A company could replace those hard drives with a single solid-state one, which would provide a strong return on investment, he said.
Handy noted that some IT departments "short-stroke" hard drives by placing data only on the outer edges of large-capacity disk drives to ensure fast access. In those cases, users are spending money for a significant amount of unused storage capacity. A solid-state drive offers top performance even when it's filled to capacity, he said.

Handy noted that some IT departments "short-stroke" hard drives by placing data only on the outer edges of large-capacity disk drives to ensure fast access.


The answer is in the sentence: 'to ensure fast access'

The origin of the phrase us probably from an engine.  A short stroke engine has a short conrod and a conrod is the bar that holds the piston which goes up and down.  The short conrod makes for faster speed of the engine revolution.  So, it is quicker.

In the sentence the data is only placed close to the access point and therefore retrival is a much quicker than if the data were all the way across the disk to its centre.
