Predictions 2018: How GDPR is Forcing Big Changes in Storage

Posted December 15, 2017. Filed under News.

Peter Godman, CTO of Qumulo:

  • SSD won't be cheaper than HDD. “In 2016, every all-flash vendor in the world claimed that solid-state disks are now cheaper than HDD, based on two nonsensical claims that (1) all data is compressible and duplicated and (2) compression and dedupe don't apply to HDDs. Western Digital's MAMR (microwave-assisted magnetic recording) announcement makes it clear that the ratio of NAND flash capacity cost to HDD capacity cost will remain close to 10x for years to come.”
  • “All major cloud vendors will start to build or buy file storage, as they realize that quality, scalable file storage is essential for capturing compute-intensive workloads.”
  • “SATA and SAS SSDs will rapidly disappear as the cost of NVMe (non-volatile memory express) and SATA/SAS converges quickly.”
  • “AMD will make rapid inroads in all-flash storage due to Epyc's enormous PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express)) bandwidth, and ARM will wait on the server sidelines for another year.”
