The Future of Enterprise Flash in 2015

TLC Flash, 3D NAND, NVM and Hybrid Memory Arrays are the four big changes coming to memory based storage in 2015 that enterprises need to be prepared for. The technologies promise to dramatically reduce the cost of flash storage while at the same time increase the performance of the storage infrastructure. Join Storage Switzerland founder, George Crump and Tegile System’s Chief Marketing Officer, Narayan Venkat for this on demand webinar. By listening to the webinar you will learn about the future of flash technology, how it will help the data center meet user demands and most important how you should use current flash technology right now.

Watch On Demand

TLC Flash and 3D NAND promise to bring down the cost of flash so that it is more suitable for secondary data and potentially even archives. But these technologies will be vulnerable to durability issues. In the webinar we will discuss what these technologies are, how vendors will address the wear out issue and how current enterprise flash vendors will deploy them.

NVM (Non-volatile memory) storage is the DRAM answer to Flash. Flash was made popular because of its ability to continue to store data after a power outage vs. traditional DRAM that losses that memory. But DRAM is substantially faster than Flash, especially on writes. NVM is the industries attempt to solve cross the bridge by delivering a storage technology that is as fast as DRAM and as persistent as flash.

Storage Switzerland believes that these three technologies will lead to a fourth technology, a Hybrid Memory Array, that is able to store a combination of different memory technologies as well as potentially hard disk technology. In the webinar we will discuss how this array would need to be designed.

While understanding the future trends in storage is important, knowing what to do next is even more so. We will conclude our webinar with a detailed plan for how to best take advantage of flash storage in 2015.
