Not Achieving the SSD Performance You Expected? Latency Outliers May Be the Issue - Delivering new levels of application performance at massive scale is a requirement for modern enterprises and cloud service providers. These organizations are frequently employing hyperscale architectures and solid-state disks (SSDs) to meet modern applications’ aggressive performance requirements. However, performance degradation
How to Avoid the Storage Refresh - IT professionals look forward to storage refreshes as much as the look forward to a trip to the dentist. In fact, the dentist may be preferable. There are certainly times where storage needs to be upgraded but IT should do
Why is Software Defined Storage Failing to Consolidate Storage? - After enterprises decide not to use the storage mainframe described in our last blog they often next investigate software-defined storage (SDS) as a means to consolidate their storage and reduce storage costs. With SDS, consolidation occurs at the storage software
Why Storage is a Virtualization ROI Killer – And How to Fix It - Virtualization brings the advantage of being able to run a multitude of workloads on the same physical infrastructure. In theory, virtualization promises IT professionals better infrastructure utilization and simplified management. The reality that many are finding, however, is in fact
Use Cases for Computational Storage - Previously, Storage Switzerland has discussed the value of computational storage, or adding compute power directly to storage media to enable data to be processed in place, in serving modern workloads – as well as its impact on future forward data
AI Requires a File Storage Overhaul - Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming solidified as an important tool for competitive advantage, used by organizations of all sizes and across industries. Legacy network-attached storage (NAS) systems, however, are not equipped to provide the levels of throughput that these workloads
Impact of Computational Storage on Data Center Design - Previously, Storage Switzerland defined computational storage as an architecture that enables data to be processed within the storage device in lieu of being transported to the host server’s central processing unit (CPU). Computational storage reduces the input/output (I/O) transaction load
Rethinking the SAN for the NVMe Era - Non-volatile memory express (NVMe) flash drives promise new levels of ultra-low latency and fast performance. The media is beginning to find its way into the enterprise storage environments, on the back of the need to serve the growing number of
What is Computational Storage? - Modern workloads such as analytics of data generated at the edge require vast amounts of data to be processed in parallel. As discussed in our previous blog, the advent of solid-state drive (SSD) storage media has caused the interface between
Why Flash Should Be a Part of Your Data Protection Infrastructure - The time has come. Flash should be a part of an organization’s data protection architecture. The rapid recovery features available in most data protection software all claim in some form to be able to instantiate an application’s volume on the
