Just before the HP Discover Blogger Lounge was packed up, I did a podcast with Chris Wahl and Chris Evans.  I introduce them in the podcast so I won't do it here.  The reason I did this podcast with them is they both had written blog posts addressing their views on All Flash Arrays (AFAs).  The blog posts were:

 The podcast with the two Chrises was a great conversation where we all agreed that customers need to focus on requirements.  Check it out here.  You can also download it if you want to listen to it later. 

 

 

I'm kicking myself now as I wish I had also asked Robin Harris (who was with us at HP Discover) to join our podcast because he also had a recent blog post looking at AFAs titled, "The top 5 alternatives to XtremIO".  Apologies Robin for not thinking to pull you into this discussion.  

 

You can see all of the ATSB blog posts focused on all flash arrays.
