Re: Golf cart for your commute, anyone?

Hmm, some were seeing the end of tape with the introduction of HDDs.........

I dont doubt that HDDs will be pushed further and further down the pecking order but I just cant see SSD/Flash become as dense and as cost effective per gb against HDDs for some time and certainly not in two year's time.

For workloads other than the very top tier where all flash makes sense and can be justified, the hybrid players such as Nimble have got the right balance, for now, where they can give massive performance but not at the same high cost as the all flash players. The best of both worlds, if you like.
