FlashBlade: Putting File- and Object-Based Storage Vendors En Garde

This IDC Flash Report provides a closer look at FlashBlade, a new cloud-scale data platform from one of the industry's leading all-flash storage vendors.  Announced in March 2016, FlashBlade is targeted at file- and object-based storage (FOBS) environments and exhibits some very different architecture and technology from the FlashArray.  The report also provides a future outlook on the storage market, which IDC expects will grow to $32.8 billion by 2019.
