Flash technology proves to be one of the most disruptive forces in the marketplace since virtualization. The technology resulted in a major shift of storage capacity from performance hard disk drives (HDD) to flash-based solutions. 

Flash storage evolved in three unique stages: application-specific performance, virtualization, and primary storage. Initially, flash was used specifically for business critical applications and use cases such as VDI. These initial systems were all provided by start-ups and were very expensive relative to traditional storage arrays. As virtualization expanded, flash use increased as a way to solve the bottleneck of consolidated servers utilizing oversubscribed storage systems. Now, as the price of flash declines, it is being used for tier 1 primary storage. There are multiple deployment options for flash, including server and network-based flash. All-flash systems are network-based, large capacity solutions that can be shared across multiple servers. Today, all primary storage vendors have all-flash storage offerings. This radar report explores the all-flash systems.
