Death & taxes. The laws of physics can’t be broken. Money goes to money. Some things are a given in this world and simply need time and pressure to evolve.
In the past months – especially this week in particular – we have seen almost a half a billion dollars of investment injected into the world of solid-state. If nothing else, this infusion of cash is the “red sky at night” forbearing for the vendors who live in and push the development of this ecosystem.
Traditional storage is exiting stage left (with the world of virtualization swinging the “Gong Show” mallet) for critical use-cases such as high IO applications like VDI and databases. Solid-state is the natural, evolutionary step for the transference of data. Buckle up, it’s going to be wild ride.
