SSD Storage

Is Your All-Flash Array Leaking? - An all-flash array is supposed to be the pinnacle of storage performance but these systems have a secret; they are leaking performance. Proof of this is simple, take the raw IOPS of the drives inside the typical all-flash array and
Why Can’t SDS Be More Like VMware? - VMware fundamentally changed server deployment. Prior to VMware the best practice was “one-server, one-app” which, as Intel processors continued to increase in power, led to a massive waste of compute resources. VMware allowed applications to be safely stacked on those
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
What is Scale-Out NVMe? - The first step for NVMe flash is to use them internally in servers and storage systems. However, there is another aspect of NVMe, NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-F) that promises high-speed communication between devices and also promises a new way to
Storage for Deep Learning - Deep Learning is a machine learning method that uses algorithms to determine a predictable behavior by analyzing seemingly disparate types of data. Use cases include fraud prevention, image classification, speech recognition, and countless others. To deliver a frictionless interaction with
Overcoming the Network Problems of High Capacity Flash in All-Flash Systems - Flash media is getting denser. There have been several announcements promising 50TB plus SSDs within the next six months. The distinct advantage for all-flash systems is they will be able to deliver Petabytes of capacity in just a few rack
Do All-Flash Arrays Have A Failure Domain Problem? - The capacity of all-flash arrays has been on the rise for several years. Many vendors are now claiming petabytes (PB) of capacity in just a few rack units. While these arrays promise to dramatically reduce the footprint of the data
More Than Just Drives – A Complete NVMe All-Flash Solution - All-Flash Arrays bring an unprecedented level of performance to applications in the data center. Most of this performance gain comes from the replacement of hard disk drives with flash as the media of choice. The gain in performance was largely
Will NVMe Over Fabrics Kill DAS? - Many advanced application architectures use Direct Attached Storage (DAS) instead of centralized shared storage for two reasons. First, in most cases sever drives are less expensive than drives found in shared storage systems. Second, storage that is internally accessed has
Flash Portfolio’s Matter – Seagate Flash Memory Summit Briefing Note - Flash storage is evolving on three vectors. Performance continues to be the key vector. Most data centers buy flash because of its performance attributes; high IOPS and low latency. The second vector is density. Flash has the ability to provide
