Running applications in the storage array


This is definitely an interesting question, but it's hard to predict how this evolves. As the previous poster points out, there is an historical pendulum in system designs that swings between integrated and modular. For some applications, such as Hadoop, this could be the answer, but there are many applications that don't have the same requirements profile for performance, capacity, and cost. A big challenge in all this will be in orchestrating applications and infrastructure to ensure that compute and data are at the right place at the right time in the right ratios. Applications change and grow constantly, and we need systems that can dynamically adapt.
