Flash Storage

How Do I Prepare for PCIe Gen 4? - 2019 will be the year that new CPUs and motherboards supporting the fourth generation of the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) interface (PCIe 4.0) will come to market – meaning that new storage systems using the interface are also on
The ROI of Extreme Performance - In our recent webinar, “Flash Storage – Deciding Between High Performance and EXTREME Performance”, Storage Switzerland and Violin Systems discussed the use cases that demand extreme performance over high performance. Extreme performance is for applications that can benefit from consistent
Does the Storage Media Matter Anymore? - It used to be that the storage media was the determining factor of an application’s performance. However, with non-volatile memory express (NVMe) solid-state drives (SSDs) now having reached price parity with Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) SSDs, the potential to achieve hundreds
Is Your Application Performance Too Slow? Consider Computational Storage - The modern workload set has fundamentally changed the nature of and also how we handle data sets. Previously, critical business applications were typically driven by the processing of large, monolithic databases that were comprised of large files. Today, more and
New eBook: Taking The Load off Networks with Computational Storage - The data center is a series of networks. There are networks that connect servers to users and networks that connect storage to servers. Even within servers and storage there are networks to connect CPU to IO devices like flash drives
Has NVMe Really Reached Price Parity with SAS? - Several NVMe flash vendors are claiming that NVMe Flash has reached price parity with Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) based flash. The claim is true or pretty close to true in most situations. Vendors are selling their NVMe flash drives for
How Can I Cut Storage Costs? - Cutting storage costs is not a straightforward equation. There are many variable factors that impact the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a storage infrastructure. In this blog, we will provide a few things that IT professionals can do to
Why Workload Modeling and Monitoring for NVMe-oF? - When migrating to new technology, it is always important to conduct a careful cost/benefit analysis, to understand what the return on the new investment will be. It is also necessary to be sure that the investment will provide desired outcomes
Solving the New Storage Performance Problem - NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) flash drives thrust storage media from the position of the worst performing component of the data center to the best. The technology’s low latency however, exposes other bottlenecks that went previously undetected. The new storage performance
What is High versus Extreme Performance? - While some applications in the data center require extreme performance, high performance is now a default requirement for all production applications. How performance is measured varies by application (for example, one application might require very high throughput while others might
