Storage technology giant EMC this week debuted its XtremIO all-flash technology storage array, marking the company's entry into a nascent market that until now has largely been the province of small startups such as Violin Memory and Pure Storage.

The unveiling had been anticipated for 18 months, following EMC's 2012 acquisition of XtremeIO, the Israeli developer of the flash technology.

EMC could lose some points for taking so long to bring XtremIO to market. But the vendor is the first top-tier storage vendor to offer an all-flash array and channel partners said the products were worth waiting for, describing XtremIO as a market game-changer that puts EMC ahead of the competition.
