Why Israel is a hotbed for flash storage innovation

Lucas Mearian | May 18, 2012
Israel is where the USB flash drive was invented and where innovative companies such as Anobit and XtremIO are drawing American companies to their shores in droves

More importantly, EMC was not looking for just another flash hardware product, Peters said. It wanted XtremIO's flash management intellectual property -- the software.

In remarks after the purchase, EMC spokesman Dave Farmer did not refer to XtremIO's product as a flash array but as "an architecture."

"EMC, whatever else you may think of them, doesn't do a lot of stupid things," Peters said. "For the next few years, the industry will be focused on storage management and not flash technology."
