All Flash Arrays Capacity Optimized Performance Optimized Hybrid Arrays Caching SW PCIe Flash Cards/SSD Enterprise Disk Arrays PCIe card deployment will require advanced caching in combination with some form of capacity optimized disk array in order to replicate benefits of shared storage. Most legacy storage vendors now support standard form factor SSDs within disk arrays as Tier-1 performance optimized capacity and could be considered “hybrid” arrays.
