During last week’s HP Discover, I spent 15 minutes discussing all-flash arrays with Calvin Zito (HP’s Storage Guy) and Chris Wahl, from Wahl Network. The conclusion of our discussion is that it’s all about requirements for the customer rather than placing products into contrived categories. The idea of the “all-flash array” or AFA has been useful as a reference point until now, however as previously discussed, the market is maturing and rigidly defined product definitions don’t really make sense.
