In the current 3rd Platform computing era, enterprises of all sizes are being asked to continue to support legacy applications while providing support for next-generation applications (NGAs) in mobile computing, social media, big data/analytics, and cloud environments. At the same time, most information technology (IT) organizations are consolidating around virtual infrastructure for both legacy and new applications. This has significantly changed the I/O profiles that storage infrastructure has to deal with, and it has become clear that for most primary storage workloads, and even now for some secondary workloads, hard disk drives (HDDs) no longer adequately meet requirements. As a result, we are seeing overall enterprise storage revenue shift away from HDD-based designs toward newer flash-based designs.
