The classic criteria for data storage have been capacity and reliability – space for now and for the foreseeable future, and automatic back-up, not a manual method that can be neglected, but complete protection against hard-drive failure or malfunction. We need it set-and-forget, and we need to trust it.

But as standards have progressed and file sizes have risen, speed has become ever more important: speed of writing when we’re dumping the contents from a card of 4K video; speed of reading when we’re searching and playing back. For real-time viewing of final content – videos and movies in particular – we need the ability to serve that data to the point of consumption without the constrictions that lead to buffering.
