Abstract: 

We will examine how use cases for SSDs are affecting both the adoption of SSDs and server architecture. We will discuss whether SSDs will cause a significant shift back to direct attach storage at least for Flash. If so, we must explore how that storage will be shared and replicated and protected. How are SSDs evolving SAN based storage? Will the form factors for SSDs converge or is there a place for the plethora of formfactors that are appearing? We will show new use cases that exploit SSDs and potential ones in the future.
