All-Flash Array Strategies and Benefits in the Datacenter

By: Eric BurgenerResearch Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group

On-line Presentation


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.
