Enterprise storage sitrep: The external array party is over


AFA just External - bit moderised

Paul Havs from HPE herer....

Ummmm, i fail to see why the industry, including el'Reg, doesn't just recognise that the AFA industry is just an evolution of the (yes traditional) external array industry.

For sure, the external array industry is flat to small growth; however virtually ALL of that fleet will be replaced with AFA over next 5 years to be sure - thats a fantastic opportunity for all - customers and vendors.

The reason for this is due to structured data growth being minimal; and unstructured being massive. External shared array storage is best suited for structured data - thats what it is designed for.
