The storage technology landscape has evolved dramatically over the past few years. Data centers once dominated by SAN and NAS arrays now include all-flash arrays, software-defined storage, and even hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology.

And these shifts may just be the early signs of the revolution in storage, as it moves away from multiple isolated technologies each with its own expert to fewer, more powerful, and automated technologies.
