Increasingly the variety of implementations available from true SSD arrays to Memory Accelerators is more and more mainstream.
From the customers I speak with people are also less hung up on the technical details And are focusing more on the impact to the applications themselves. This can only mean One thing – that the IT industry is finally accepting SSD’s in all their glory are the future of storage. SSD’s not only open the door to massive IO performance but also highlight technologies like Storage Tiering Which SSD is really an enabler for not to mention VDI which seems a sweet spot for the technology. What is clear is Solid State technologies are here to stay, what implementation becomes the market leader... Only time will tell.
