Lightboard Video: Object Storage Isn’t Just For Cold Data Anymore

Object Storage, because of its ability to cost effectively store petabytes plus of data, is often thought of as a digital dumping ground. While object storage is an ideal location for inactive data, customers aren’t deriving the full benefit of

Lightboard Video: Is Now the Time to Move to NVMe Flash?

A common question from IT professionals is when is the right time to start purchasing NVMe Arrays over SAS-based All-Flash Arrays. The answer as always is, it depends, but as George Crump, Lead Analyst with Storage Switzerland discusses in this

Use Cases for Computational Storage

Previously, Storage Switzerland has discussed the value of computational storage, or adding compute power directly to storage media to enable data to be processed in place, in serving modern workloads – as well as its impact on future forward data

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

What is Computational Storage?

Modern workloads such as analytics of data generated at the edge require vast amounts of data to be processed in parallel. As discussed in our previous blog, the advent of solid-state drive (SSD) storage media has caused the interface between

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

SlideShare: Myth Busting – The Four NVMe Myths

NVMe enables storage system vendors to once again raise expectations on the performance capabilities of all-flash arrays. NVMe provides a higher command count, greater queue depth and leverages the PCIe interface to deliver a significant increase in IOPS potential with

Why Hyperconverged Infrastructure 2.0 for Storage-Intensive Workloads?

The volume and business significance of storage-intensive workloads (e.g. high-volume analytics) is rapidly growing. As a result, cumbersome and expensive legacy storage infrastructures are weighing heavily not only on business’ bottom lines, but also on their ability to compete effectively.

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
