Re: @AC

The article is about enterprise storage. Your comment was in its entirety about personal laptops. While both essentially store data they are very different scenarios. Would you be happy if all your banking details were just stored on a laptop of one of your banks employees?

You didn't "mention" putting an SSD in your laptop. Your entire comment was about that. However, I do see your point that SSDs have made a personal difference to you in the context of your laptop and perhaps that difference could be extended to the value they lend to enterprise-class systems. In reply I was merely stating that the latter is a complicated beast and economies of scale suggest that while flash storage cannot replace legacy hard drives they are a valuable tool available to the storage architect.

You clearly took it personally so apologies for that. Have a nice week.
