Solving the Billion Files Problem - Most file system management tools – whether they are for reporting, governance, backup, archiving, migration, cloud bursting, or content classification – start developing performance problems when the total number of files and directories exceeds a hundred million. The performance challenges
How to Manage All Your Flash Options - Today’s data center storage infrastructure has to support an unprecedented number of workloads, ranging from virtualized workloads to artificial intelligence and machine learning. Each of these workloads can benefit from all-flash storage systems and it seems like there is a
Flash Memory Summit 2019 – Day 1 - Storage Switzerland is at the 2019 edition of the Flash Memory Summit (FMS). Each day of the summit, we will be providing a quick summary of our meetings. Day 1 was a busy day for StorageSwiss as we raced from
The Value of Fine Tuned Flash Drives – Burlywood Briefing Note - What differentiates one flash drive from another? For the most part, the NAND is very similar. The key differentiator is the controller. The problem is each vendor does its unique optimizations and then releases the combined (controller and NAND) product.
Democratizing In-Memory Computing - The speed and low latency of dynamic access memory (DRAM) are why so many organizations are looking at developing new applications to take advantage of the in-memory computing concept. The problem is that rewriting and migrating to a new application
You Need a Multi-Flash Storage Strategy - The two big trends in flash technology are Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) flash and QLC (quad-level cell) but they are at opposite ends of the spectrum from a use case perspective. NVMe flash is designed for extremely high performance and
Multi-Cloud versus the Five Requirements of Data – Datrium Briefing Note - Organizations need to meet five core requirements of the data they store; encryption, mobility, performance, retention and disaster recovery. To deliver these elements, IT is often forced to use five or more products just for on-premises data, let alone the
Customizable and More Efficient Computational Storage - ScaleFlux Briefing Note Data-driven, processing-intensive workloads like database processing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and content delivery networks (CDN) require new levels of storage performance, which today is coming to mean deployment on a non-volatile memory express (NVMe)
Dell Technologies World – The Dell Technologies Data Protection Strategy - Dell Technologies is evolving its data protection strategy to emphasize data management. As it does so, it is focusing its portfolio on being both “software-defined” (in that solutions may be deployed on-premises as stand-alone software or pre-integrated into an appliance),
Bringing the Cloud Model to On-Premises Flash Storage – StorPool Briefing Note - Legacy storage-area network (SAN) architectures are notoriously expensive and complex, leading many enterprises to consider migrating workloads off-premises. However, the public cloud model carries recurring costs that add up over time; with the growing petabytes of data that need to
