|Editor:- May 12, 2015 - What percentage of the
capacity in virtualized SDS environments is already flash?|
interesting picture is given in a recently published survey
State of SDS (pdf) by DataCore - which
includes results from 477 IT professionals who are currently using or
evaluating SDS technology. Among the findings:-
- Less than 9% said that flash already acccounts for 40% or
more of their storage. And nearly half of all participants said that flash is
less than 10% of their storage capacity.
- Over 70% have flash in their budget in 2015.
- 16% of those who had used flash felt they hadn't got the apps
acceleration they expected.
comments:- You can interpret these results

future market for enterprise flash compared to what has already been
- 19% said that storage failures had caused unforeseen outages.
