Flash Is the Present, Not the Future, of Enterprise Storage

Upstarts may have pioneered the use of flash memory in enterprise storage arrays, but the incumbents are in an excellent position to exploit the technology with updated architectures. Established storage vendors, including HDS, EMC, and IBM, have all recently made significant investments in flash technology, either through internal development or through acquisition. Last year, HDS announced it had developed its own flash storage module for its Virtual Storage Platform, claiming it would deliver better performance, energy efficiency, and capacity and lower costs per bit. EMC, meanwhile, snapped up flash memory startup XtremeIO and has also redesigned its VNX product line with flash. A year after acquiring veteran PCIe-based solid-state disk maker Texas Memory, IBM laid out its roadmap for flash, which includes developing a controller for its storage arrays that are optimiz...
