The enterprise storage industry has passed from the hard disk era through hybrid to all-flash, but what comes next? In this sponsored episode, Moshe Twitto of Pliops joins Enrico Signoretti, Chris Evans, and Stephen Foskett to discuss the end of the SSD era. Considering the durability issues of NAND flash, the limited value add of most SSDs, and the emergence of disaggregated infrastructure, the industry is on the cusp of a radical transformation. While disks and flash SSDs will still exist, these will have less relevance architecturally as intelligence moves closer to the storage media. The next architectural step is to develop flexible solid state key-value store devices rather than continuing with block storage.
