New Report – Reducing Storage Latency by putting Flash on the Memory Bus

Application performance is increasingly affected by the performance of the underlying storage, and storage performance is inextricably tied to latency. For this reason reducing latency and increasing its predictability has become the ‘holy grail’ of high-performance storage designs. And while flash is clearly the storage medium of choice, where it is placed in the storage infrastructure is now the focus.

In this report Storage Switzerland’s Senior Analyst, Eric Slack discusses how moving flash into the server was a good first step, and putting flash onto PCIe cards was another. But there is potential to reduce latency even further by placing it on the memory bus. The paper defines latency and examines steps that flash suppliers have taken to cut that latency.
