Flash Storage

An Alternative Path to Storage Modernization – Coraid Briefing Note - Disruption is the hallmark of today’s storage industry. The steady maturation of new delivery models (cloud services), media (flash) and access protocols (NVMe) evidence the fact that legacy storage architectures are no longer sufficient. Businesses are turning to ever-growing data
Is All-NVMe Worth Your Money? – WorkloadWisdom 6.2 Virtual Instruments Briefing Note - All-Flash Arrays (AFA), the goto high performance storage system for the past few years, is being replaced by All-NVMe. NVMe flash promises to improve performance by reducing latency and increasing bandwidth to flash based media. NVMe is PCIe based instead
Delivering Storage for Web-Scale IT in the Enterprise – Excelero Briefing Note - A web-scale data center needs to scale to support thousands if not millions of users. Web-scale application use cases range from traditional transactional IT to modern data analytics and machine learning workloads. It also includes new advanced video applications and
Starting Small with Object Storage – Caringo Briefing Note - Organizations of all sizes are dealing with explosive growth in unstructured data.

These Tier 1 systems are also typically well equipped with enterprise features like snapshots, replication and
Solving the Software Defined Storage Bottleneck – Mellanox Briefing Note - Software Defined Storage (SDS) abstracts commodity storage hardware so that it can be used in a scale-out architecture, but this can create a bottleneck between the CPU and the storage media. In many cases, the latency of hard disk drives
Simpler is Better – Solving Rack Scale Storage Problems – DriveScale Briefing Note - The storage infrastructure for multi-rack scale applications like Hadoop Spark, Cassandra, and CouchBase, are typically built using directly attached flash-based storage instead of a shared flash array. The motivation for using direct-attached storage (DAS) is simple. Media inside a server
Dealing with the AI and Analytics Data Explosion – MapR Briefing Note - Accuracy and response time defines the success or failure of an AI or analytics project.
