REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 11, 2015 –Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, joined a group of industry experts on a panel discussion on topics related to flash storage networking. Executives from Avago, Chelsio, Mellanox, and Samsung Semiconductor also participated in the panel.
“With flash memory taking a growing percentage of the storage industry, networking technologies that are optimized for flash are working their way into the architectures for mainstream storage”, said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group responsible for research on Storage Systems. “As cloud service provider purchasing of storage systems has become a greater percentage of the total market, it is impacting business models of incumbent storage vendors, as well as the architecture of new systems designs—thereby creating market opportunity for flash”, added DePuy.
Discussion about external array ports shipment trends, flash and overall capacity shipment trends, and the effect of white box shipment trends are among the topics of the panelists.
