Ray Lucchesi of RayOnStorage comments:
Read an article the other day on Google Cloud tests out fast, high I/O SSD drives. I suppose it was only a matter of time before cloud services included SSDs in their I/O mix.
Yet, it doesn’t seem to me to be as simple as adding SSDs to the storage catalog. Enterprise storage vendors have had SSDs arguably since January of 2008 (see my EMC introduced SSDs to DMX dispatch). And although there are certainly a class of applications that can take advantage of SSD low latency/high IOPs, the vast majority of applications don’t seem to require these services.
SSD storage backing cloud platforms is going to drive a large amount of development. When storage is no longer constrained, everyone wins.
