What is Data Management?

A smart and holistic data management platform is the linchpin to enterprise competitiveness, but at this point in time, it remains largely a nirvana that storage managers are chasing. In this article, Storage Switzerland explains what constitutes data management, how

Are Storage Infrastructures Fixing the Wrong Problem? – Formulus Black Briefing Note

When the CPU needs data, the role of the storage system is to transfer information into main memory so the CPU can process it. The memory channels between the CPU and main memory is very fast and the number of

15 Minute Friday Webinar: Rethinking Storage Performance for Modern Applications

Modern applications process large segments of data, often in parallel. These applications need to match patterns across a multitude of object and vectors or regularly update multiple indices as they change over time. Storage IO and network latency quickly become

Impact of Computational Storage on Data Center Design

Previously, Storage Switzerland defined computational storage as an architecture that enables data to be processed within the storage device in lieu of being transported to the host server’s central processing unit (CPU). Computational storage reduces the input/output (I/O) transaction load

An AI Led Approach to Hyperconvergence – HiveIO Briefing Note

Adoption of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) continues to soar, with a slew of vendors promising to eradicate storage complexity and to radically reduce IT costs. Unfortunately, many HCI solutions fail to keep promises made, especially as these architectures scale. Simplifying storage

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
