Moving The Bar On Flash Storage
While 2012 and 2013 were all about introducing a variety of flash storage hardware, 2014 was characterized by a gradual move to give flash storage the kind of maturity enjoyed by spinning disk storage, including adding utility pay-as-you-go pricing schemes and advanced enterprise storage software capabilities.
