I saw a tweet pass by from PernixData and although I already knew the world of datacenter/storage design was changing it just really sank in. Over the last 5 years we have seen the world of storage change significantly. We have seen new types of storage being introduced like all-flash-based storage, hybrid storage (mix of SSD and SATA) and hyper-converged solutions. Examples of these would be Violin Memory (all-flash), Tintri (hybrid) and Nutanix (converged). More recently object-based storage solutions are trending, as Stephen Foskett states in his article on scaling storage it is nothing new but it seems to be more relevant in this new day and age.
