There have always been certain workloads and applications that stretch the boundaries of storage technologies. While this is nothing new, the number of these workloads is poised to expand dramatically, fueled by the growth of initiatives such as big data analytics, mobility, cloud computing, social media and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The common challenge among these workloads is the requirement for huge data sets to be processed quickly, efficiently and—most important—concurrently. The storage infrastructure must not only deliver extreme performance in terms of bandwidth, IOPS, low latency and high availability, but do so while dealing with potentially huge multi-petabyte data sets.
