Just when we thought there were enough all-flash products on the market, Hitachi (or HDS if you prefer) has released a new line of all-flash systems under the brand name “Hitachi Flash Storage” or HFS.  The Cheetah reference in the title is the project name of the product during its development.  Before digging into technical details, the first thoughts of many people will be whether we need yet another flash product and why bring it to the market now.  Valid questions that this post will explore.
