SSD Storage

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 Production Workload Modeling for NVMe? - Enterprises are relying on a growing number of applications to run their business. At the same time, these applications carry requirements including performance levels that are simultaneously more divergent and dynamic than ever before. New applications are being spun up
What is Workload Modeling? - Workload modeling is the process of capturing the IO patterns of a workload so that it can be played back later in a different environment. The goal is to provide a very close simulation of how that workload will respond
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
Storage Technology Showcase Coming to Dallas-Fort Worth - The storage industry lacks a multi-vendor conference that focuses more on educating IT professionals than on selling gear. Today, most IT conferences are sponsored by a single vendor (VMworld, Dell Technologies, HPE Discover, NetApp Insight and Hitachi Next) there is
Taking The Load off of Networks with Computational Storage - It used to be that the storage media was the slowest component of the storage infrastructure. Now, thanks to flash, it is the fastest. Long before IO leaves the storage system and traverses the network, bottlenecks begin. In fact, the
Why Hyperconverged Infrastructure 2.0 for the Hybrid Cloud? - Most enterprises have experienced early value and success with deploying hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) for virtualized workloads. In fact, it is the ability to streamline the path to the on-premises private cloud through abstracting the storage controller into the hypervisor and
Using Workload Simulation to Justify the Shift to NVMe - The introduction of the non-volatile memory express (NVMe) storage protocol brings with it a new storage performance tier. Whereas older Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) standards were designed for slower-performing hard disk drive (HDDs) and
Why Hyperconverged Infrastructure 2.0 for Storage-Intensive Workloads? - The volume and business significance of storage-intensive workloads (e.g. high-volume analytics) is rapidly growing. As a result, cumbersome and expensive legacy storage infrastructures are weighing heavily not only on business’ bottom lines, but also on their ability to compete effectively.
Is Your All-Flash Storage Software Block Only? - Accelerating database performance remains a top use case for all-flash arrays, so it makes sense that most all-flash array systems only support block storage. However, only supporting block means that the customer assigns the “raw” volume to a server and
