Adam Leventhal about the storage business in the light of the HSP
Adam Leventhal wrote an really insightful piece about the potential effect of the Hybrid Storage Pool to the storage business in “Casting the shadow of the Hybrid Storage Pool”:
What we have today though integrates flash in a way that changes the landscape of storage economics and delivers cost efficiencies that haven't been seen before. If the drives manufacturers don't already, it can't be long until they hear the death knell for 15K RPM drives loud and clear
When the performance of a storage architecture is ensured by SSD there isn´t really a need for low capacity 15k discs … 7200 rpm (or even lower) drives with high capacity are more than enough.
