VAST DATA provides bulkstress arrays using the QLC flash connected to NVME.QLC is relatively inexpensive and ideal for sequential I/O, but is the lowest in each flash generation.To avoid durability problems, Vast Data sees the traffic with the "3D Xpoint" layer (18TB per QLC flash 675TB).
According to Vast Data, the economy and used patterns obtained by this configuration will end the HDD and hierarchical storage.The company calls it "a level where the HDD hierarchy is extinct."
Despite the All NVME flash configuration, Vast Data claims that the cost per 1GB is "almost comparable" to the HDD.
