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

StorageShort: What are the Use Cases for Composable Storage?

A composable storage system can be virtually subdivided into independent arrays that provide more specific control over the allocation of performance and capacity. As opposed to quality of service (QoS), which tries to make sure certain applications get the performance
