Slideshare – The Final Frontier For High Performance Flash

Flash storage is the “go to” option in the modern data center to overcome storage I/O bottlenecks. The problem has been how to get full performance for the flash investment. The zero latent nature of flash exposes bottlenecks throughout the I/O chain. In this slideshare we discuss how the various storage interconnects (SAS/SATA HBA’s and PCIe bus) have incurred a latency penalty. These interconnects have kept flash storage from reaching its full potential. The memory bus is the final frontier in flash performance.

In this slideshare you will learn:

  • How latency is introduced by each flash interconnect
  • What the performance ramifications are of this latency
  • How to reach the full performance potential of flash-based storage by leveraging the memory bus
  • How memory bus based flash changes the game for how flash can be used in the data center

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
