IDC MarketScape: Worldwide All-Flash Array 2017 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study provides an evaluation of 10 vendors that sell all-flash arrays (AFAs) for dense mixed enterprise workload consolidation that includes at least some mission-critical applications.
"All-flash arrays are dominating primary storage spend in the enterprise, driving over 80% of that revenue in 2017," said Eric Burgener, research director, Storage. "Today's leading AFAs offer all the performance, capacity scalability, enterprise-class functionality, and datacenter integration capabilities needed to support dense mixed enterprise workload consolidation. More and more IT shops are recognizing this and committing to 'all flash for primary storage' strategies."
