Is the all-flash data centre just a tantalising dream?

Depending on your environment, it is quite possible that in the region of half of your storage requirements are for backups. If you are backing up to disk, then the cost for flash is likely to be pretty high when compared to a disk based solution. Space savings are minimal if you are looking at high density disk arrays, and in many cases the flash equivalent will actually need more physical space.
