ChalkTalk Video: The SSD Matters

Consumer and Enterprise SSDs, from outward appearances, all look the same. As a result, organizations are sometimes tempted to use consumer SSDs in enterprise use cases or get the least expensive SSD possible.

In this ChalkTalk Video, Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst George Crump and Kingston Technology’s Cameron Crandall explain not all SSDs are created equal. Watch to learn what causes unpredictable latency spikes and inconsistent IO delivery. Then watch as they discuss how vendors can reduce the impact of these problems upfront through proper design and testing.

George Crump is the Chief Marketing Officer at VergeIO, the leader in Ultraconverged Infrastructure. Prior to VergeIO he was Chief Product Strategist at StorONE. Before assuming roles with innovative technology vendors, George spent almost 14 years as the founder and lead analyst at Storage Switzerland. In his spare time, he continues to write blogs on Storage Switzerland to educate IT professionals on all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought-after public speaker. With over 30 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS, SAN, Virtualization, Cloud, and Enterprise Flash. Before 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.
