Understanding the Problem of Unification in Most Software-Defined Storage Solutions

The promise of software-defined storage (SDS) aims to unify all of your organization’s storage assets through a single user interface. But that interface is supposed to do more than provide a single pane of glass for monitoring. It is also

When is it Time to Move to NVMe?

Most major storage vendors are now delivering Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) based All-Flash Arrays. Initially, most of these arrays use NVMe drives internally but connect to the storage network via standard network protocols like SCSI over Fibre Channel. A few

Lightboard Video: Analyzing SANs at NVMe Speeds

The enterprise storage industry is undergoing a widespread transformation. Scale-out applications can generate the IO demands needed to justify further investment in storage area network infrastructure. NVMe All-Flash Arrays can deliver millions of IOPS with unprecedented bandwidth. NVMe-oF, and especially,

SlideShare: Flash Storage – Deciding Between High Performance and EXTREME Performance

All-Flash arrays are no longer a one size fits all. There is a clear line of demarcation between standard all-flash and extreme flash, but most suppliers try to squeeze all of an organization’s problems into a single system architecture because

Meet the President of the Fibre Channel Industry Association: Mark Jones

Against the backdrop of Moore’s Law and ultra-low latency non-volatile memory express (NVMe) solid state drives, network speed and total capacity are increasingly the levers that make or break an application’s performance. Fibre Channel (FC) storage networking may be frequently

What is High versus Extreme Performance?

While some applications in the data center require extreme performance, high performance is now a default requirement for all production applications. How performance is measured varies by application (for example, one application might require very high throughput while others might

What is Extreme Performance?

The modern data center has to support many different types of workloads, each of which makes different demands on the storage architecture. Today, standard all-flash arrays (AFA) are the mainstream storage system for the data centers and conventional best practice
