"Flash has yet to reach its full potential," said Duplessie. "Even at this relatively early stage in its development, flash clearly has what it takes to shake up the data center, and as it continues to advance, I predict that more and more enterprises will abandon spinning disk. In next week's live event, Matt and I will flag the technology's current limitations and talk about whether flash is ready to replace disk in the enterprise. Anyone considering making the switch to flash storage solutions should tune in!"
