Flash Storage

Are You an Edge-Now Data Center? - We often think of edge data centers as a remote data center that an organization deploys to process a local data set in order to subsequently send that data set, or not, to a larger, primary data center. An example
For All-Flash Performance, Hardware vs. Media - In recent years the industry has seen the evolution of flash media from Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) based interconnects to Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) based interconnects. And now, PCIe interconnect is standardized around
How to Get Your Application Ready for Computational Storage Architecture - At its most basic, computational storage involves putting processing power where the data resides. In the case of flash storage, a computational storage vendor installs processing power on the flash drive. Imagine an array full of 100 flash drives; now
Meet Application Service Level Agreements (SLAs) Without Breaking Your Storage Budget - Effective application performance management (APM) is fundamental to business success. Businesses are relying on applications for differentiated end customer experiences, smoother internal collaboration, and for innovation. Fundamental to making sure that business critical applications are running smoothly (i.e. they are
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
