Re: The last stand for arrays
Fazal Majid talks of high latency SAN but mine is consistently sub-1ms. This is more than rocket fast for all the applications most mortals run. Real time trading platforms might need more but not most things. The speed potential in things like the NVMe fabrics is interesting, but irrelevant for 99% of use cases. SANs will be with us for a while yet, switching to all flash for most production data over the next 18 months or so, but they will still be with us in 2, 3, 4 and more years.
