All-Flash Array Strategies and Benefits in the Datacenter
This IDC Survey Spotlight looks at what percentage of customers have committed to an "all flash for primary storage" strategy and one of the key drivers of all-flash array (AFA) purchases — the impact of AFA purchase on storage bottlenecks and administrative productivity. IDC recently conducted primary research asking customers about their use of all-flash arrays. In 2018, IDC expects AFAs to generate over 75% of all primary external storage revenue as enterprise customers replace their aging, hard disk drive (HDD)-based general-purpose primary storage platforms with them.
