IDC: All-Flash "Shines" in EMEA External Storage

IDC: All-Flash

The EMEA enterprise external storage market continues to decline in Q1 2017, IDC reports-- revenue is down by -3.9% Y-o-Y, even as the all-flash market exceeds expectations with 100.7% growth.

All-flash is particularly popular in W. Europe and MEA, where it sees "accelerated" growth. On the other hand, the traditional HDD segment is down by -34.7% in Q1 2017.

"Brexit uncertainty, unfavorable exchange rates, major vendors' internal reorganisations, and increased component costs for SSD have weighed down on EMEA performance once again, making Q1 2017 the 9th quarter of uninterrupted decline for the region," the analyst says. "However, as enterprises progress in their digital transformation paths, sales of all-flash array systems, standalone or converged, see no crisis in sight, doubling their sales compared to the same period a year ago and reaching a quarter of total sales."

Cloud-Inspired 3D NAND SSDs for the Datacentre

Intel presents a pair of 3D NAND SSDs for datacentres-- the DC P4500 series and DC P4600 series, both ideal for cloud storage solutions, software defined storage and converged infrastructure.

Both drive series carry triple level cell (TLC) 3D NAND for "industry-leading density," together with a new Intel-developed controller, "unique" firmware innovations and connectivity via PCIe and NVMe. The DC P4500 series is optimised for reads, and as such promises "more value out of servers" as well as more data storage. Meanwhile the DC 4600 series is designed for mixed workloads, with accelerated caching enabling more workloads per server.
