All-Flash-Arrays (AFA) are performance-based solutions, providing users with access to block and file storage on a shared platform. They are ideal for virtual environments, as well as organisations or Data Centres demanding high throughput and high IOPS.
By using flash storage, with no moving components, All-Flash-Arrays can present data to users faster, showing 3 to 10 times faster performance than tradition disk-based solutions. As the cost vs. capacity trade-off or flash storage subsides, these solutions are becoming more accessible and viable for a wider market than before.
With the demand for secure, fast and cost-effective data storage, the all flash array market has continued to grow at a rate of 48% in Q1 2017. It now has a predicted value of over $1.3 billion and this will continue to increase. This in turn has seen an impact on the worldwide flash memory market which is currently valued at $128 billion.
