Flash Storage

Why Data Movement Breaks Data Management and How to Fix It - The primary goal of a data management strategy is to reduce storage costs. Achieving that goal requires that at some point data will have to move from primary storage to a less expensive secondary storage. The movement of data between
The Data Management Imperative vs. IT Reality - Data management is hard, and with the massive growth of data this task is becoming even more difficult. But, data growth is also making data management an imperative. Organizations need to figure out a way to better manage their data
What is the Value of Hybrid Flash in an All-Flash Era? - When flash storage first became viable for the enterprise, it was also very expensive. Early devices where low in capacity as well. Hybrid systems overcame these two shortcomings by mixing hard disk and flash technologies. These systems added the capability
The Storage Problems That HCI Creates - Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCI), as they scale, start to experience several storage challenges. HCI deals with any scaling requirement with a single move, adding a node. This additional node comes with CPU and Memory to meet the compute demand, flash storage
Cloud NAS vs. Large Files – How Cloud NAS can Win - Many Cloud NAS solutions leverage a local cache to get around the latency problem when retrieving data from the cloud. If the requested file is on the local cache the user will notice no performance difference than before they had
How to Get On-Premises NAS Performance with Cloud Storage - Unstructured data is a big problem for IT professionals. They have to wrestle with serving, storing, protecting and retaining all the information within that unstructured data set. Legacy NAS solutions simply can’t keep up. Cloud storage seems like an ideal
New Whitepaper: Understanding Cloud NAS Architectures - When organizations first start to leverage cloud resources they typically try to use the cloud to solve their biggest problems first; data protection and unstructured data management. The rapid and unprecedented growth of unstructured data has made both of these
Where Would We Be Without NVMe? - The purpose of the NVMe standard is to replace SCSI-based protocols, like SAS, so memory-based storage systems, like all-flash arrays, can live up to their full potential. Data centers may not need the performance potential of NVMe all-flash systems. But
Are Hybrid Arrays the New Secondary Storage - Before all-flash hybrid arrays existed, systems made up of flash, and high performance hard disk drives were the go-to option for organizations looking to solve performance problems. However, hybrid systems’ dominance was short lived as all-flash arrays came to market
What is End to End NVMe? - NVMe is a storage protocol designed specifically for flash-based storage. It is PCIe-based and provides more commands per IO queue and more IO queues. The NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-F) extension gives IP and Fibre Channel (FC) networks the ability to
