Flash & Data Service Platforms

Description

Customers are facing ever-increasing challenges to deliver more value at lower costs from their IT infrastructure while providing technologies that can enable new and emerging application types. The latest enterprise applications, driven by the need for faster I/O and lower latency response times, require the ultimate service level while keeping costs controlled. Flash technologies promise to bridge the I/O performance gap by providing exceptional I/O at consistent low latency by eliminating problems like drive seek times.

Market Insights

The market for all-flash systems almost reached $1.6 billion in 2014, two years earlier than IDC had predicted. As a result, the research firm is now projecting 2018 sales of $13.5 billion. Analysts initially anticipated a slower uptake, but prices have declined more rapidly than projected, while customers are also seeing benefits from faster performance and lower administrative costs.

"The No. 1 reason why customers are adopting it is because of performance," said Arun Chandrasekaran, an analyst at Gartner Inc. "The second reason is ease of use and management. The products are inherently fast and easy to manage."

EMC market share grew from 12% in 2013 to 31% in 2014, and EMC expects to get $3.5 billion in sales from all-flash machines in 2016.
