Scale-out storage systems are node-based architectures that cluster a group of servers and present the aggregated capacity and performance of that cluster to the attaching application servers. The idea is that a single system can scale almost infinitely to meet the storage demands of the data center. But thanks to flash storage, the need for a scale-out ...
