Five Observations from the Front Seat of Flash Disruption by Pure Storage
Matt Kixmoeller of Pure Storage outlines five observations about solid state storage:
1) Flash is disrupting every segment of storage
2) It’s all about the dedupe
3) Tiering is a compromise

Time to Plug In Yer Hybrid with Tegile
Tegile VP of Marketing Rob Commins presents the case for hybrid storage arrays. Commins discusses hybrid clouds, the “I/O Blender”, VM density, and various approaches to storage array design. He dismisses all-disk arrays, SSD as a tier, and all-flash arrays and suggests instead using DRAM and SSD caching, deduplication and compression, and unified storage in a hybrid array.
