The Reality of the All Flash Datacenter (AFDC)


This content is over 24 months old. While the research and opinions expressed by Neuralytix was valid when published, readers should not rely on the applicability of the content in the context of today’s market.

On March 16, 2016, Neuralytix published an Insight called “I love being proved wrong”. The Insight has moved Neuralytix to put forward a prediction of the adoption of the All Flash Datacenter (AFDC) as we approach 2020. Our current estimate is that 30% of all “greenfield” (as yet unimplemented projects) will adopt AFDC, while existing infrastructure will lag behind, but not by much – our estimate is 25% of all full storage refresh will result in the AFDC.

This bodes well for flash companies, and those offering a completely line of flash systems including, but not limited to, Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM, Pure Storage, NetApp, Nimble, Tegile and most other established storage companies.
