  • In a report published Friday, UBS analyst Steven Milunovich discussed a growing shift in enterprise storage – a move to all-flash storage.

The surge in demand may stem from the fact that AFAs are cost effective, as $3.2 million of hybrid arrays can be replaced with $400,000 in all-flash arrays.
