Digital Storage Projections For 2017, Part 1
At the end of last year we did an article looking at digital storage device trends for 2016. We will do a similar three-part piece for 2017… According to high performance storage company, DDN, “flash in more tiers and for more focused usage at multiple levels will dominate flash deployments. The debate will continue about how to take optimal advantage of flash – whether an all-flash array or flash as a software-defined tier is the best approach to accelerate metadata, data, and/or applications.
