Leap day, February 29th, 2016 represented a Quantum leap in Flash Storage. If you had the opportunity to read the Press Release or watch the live Quantum Leap launch event, you know this was not ordinary event! 2016 is the Year of Flash! DSSD D5, a part of that launch: is 10Milliion IOPS, 100 Microsecond Latency, 100GB/s Bandwidth and 144TB raw Flash in five rack units – Truly a Quantum Leap!

But what does it all mean? I sat down with the Vice President of DSSD Business Development, Will Layton (@WillLayton) at a recent customer briefing to get the latest. Will was more than happy to share some insight not only on the technology, but how it is helping our customers transform their operations to the Modern Data Center.
