Flash Storage

Embracing Cloud Storage Services for Data Durability and Availability - Legacy storage architectures are notoriously expensive and complex. Factor in the blazing pace at which data growth is accelerating, alongside rising pressure from the business for ubiquitous and always-on data availability, and a new nightmare is brewing for IT –
Does Your All-Flash Array Support Hard Disk Drives? - Technically, if an All-Flash Array (AFA) supports hard disk drives, it is no longer an AFA. What if however, the system could start as an AFA and then later, to save costs, move older data to inexpensive, high capacity hard
Busting the NVMe Flash Myths - NVMe is the next wave of all-flash systems coming to market. These systems are fast, dense and scalable. They promise to fundamentally change the way IT designs storage architectures in support of existing applications, and they open up new possibilities
Rethink Your Storage Strategy to Enable the Software-defined Data Center - It’s nearly impossible to turn anywhere without hearing about “IT modernization.” The term may be overused, but it is hard to overstate its importance. At its core, the concept of IT modernization means adopting a software-defined data center architecture that
Can The Data Center Provide Database as a Service? - For companies considering a cloud first strategy, migrating database applications is high on the priority list. Organizations are growing tired of provisioning new servers and buying new storage systems to keep up with database application rollout. They are also tired
Does Your All-Flash Software Provide Data Protection? - Most primary storage systems and software provide some form of data protection. That protection comes in the form of protection from media failure (typically RAID), snapshots and clones. All-Flash Arrays (AFA) seem to provide a better than average level of
Orchestration is Key to Cloud Disaster Recovery - The cloud is an ideal location from which to execute a disaster recovery. It eliminates the need for a secondary DR site and the processing power required by recovered applications because the organization purchases cloud storage and compute at the
Scale-Out Storage: The Advantages of Replication vs. Erasure Coding - Scale-out storage systems tend to protect data from media failure in one of two ways; they either use replication or erasure coding. Replication creates a user-defined number of copies of data, typically a minimum of three, as it is created
What to Look For in a Modern Storage Network - Legacy storage network architectures can’t keep up with the scale and performance requirements of modern data sets and workloads such as the Internet of Things (IoT) analytics, creating the need for transformation to support new business demands. Fibre Channel is
Dashboarding Diverse Storage Infrastructures - The previous blog in this series outlined the advantages of a diverse storage infrastructure; flexibility, workload specific performance, and hard-cost savings. The challenge with a diverse storage infrastructure is how to manage it. In prior blogs, we’ve looked at several
