Everyone in IT storage gets excited about the prospect of flash storage. It doesn’t matter whether or not it is part of a hybrid storage array (HSA) or an all-flash array (AFA) they get excited. That excitement has tilted the conventional wisdom (usually touted in trade publications) into the belief that all or at least most IT organizations have already implemented flash storage systems.
