The global All-Flash Array (AFA) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.23% during the period 2018-2022.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend gaining momentum in this market is the growing focus on enhancing customer experience and expectations. Vendors are focusing on offering differentiated products and related services to increase their market share and remain competitive. This is to enhance the customer experience by providing flexible business models such as Evergreen. The Evergreen storage business model, which is offered by Pure Storage, has a cloud-based-like approach to on-premise storage. It provides customers a subscription-based storage experience. It takes a different approach to provide upgrades to software and hardware. The Evergreen storage business model ensures end-users that no TB of storage is re-purchased.
According to the report, one driver influencing this market is the growing use of AFA in data centers. The deployment of AFAs in data centers improves the efficiency of primary storage workloads and high-performance computing. Hence, the demand for AFAs is increasing in data centers. Some AFAs used in data centers are FlashArray//M, which is offered by Pure Storage, and the DELL EMC SC series, which is offered by Dell EMC.
Further, the report states that one challenge affecting this market is the issues related to reliability of AFAs. Flash storages have limited write cycles. They go through many program-erase (P/E) cycles during their lifetime. During each P/E cycle, high electric fields are applied to the tunnel oxide, which increases stress. The tunnel oxide is a thin oxide that causes other effects such as erratic bits and over-programming, which can lead to read errors.
