ESG Brief: Flash Storage: Growth, Acceptance, and the Rise of NVMe
ESG Brief
Solid-state storage (that’s invariably flash today) continues to be adopted across IT, delivering not only performance benefits, but also other key data center benefits such as reliability, cost per I/O, and TCO savings. In terms of the overall storage environment, however, flash still has room to grow, as storage decision makers currently perceive that solid-state-level performance is only required by a subset of their workloads. Looking ahead, the industry is anticipating NVMe-based solid-state implementations, with the expectation that these new storage offerings will overtake not only the more traditional solid-state…but possibly even the larger storage networks themselves.
