Goodbye Arrays. Hello Software.

 Formation wants to once and for all uncouple storage hardware from storage software. Hardware will always be too expensive to compete with software. You don't need a smart box to store your data. You need an ordinary, industry-standard box. And incredibly smart software. So say goodbye to complicated, expensive, single-purpose arrays and join the software-defined storage movement today.
