SSDs have been used in RAID configurations since the 1990s. But there are problems with this approach when using conventional RAID controllers and 2.5" SSDs.

Although SSD IOPS (and throughput) does scale in arrays - latency is slugged by slow controllers which were originally designed for HDDs. That has inspired the development o alternative data striping methods which are more suited to big arrays of flash - and some of those techniques have also been used in cloud-like HDD arrays too.
