Busting the NVMe Flash Myths

NVMe is the next wave of all-flash systems coming to market. These systems are fast, dense and scalable. They promise to fundamentally change the way IT designs storage architectures in support of existing applications, and they open up new possibilities

The ROI of a Flash and Object Storage Architecture

The flash+object storage architecture creates a cost effective, two tier storage architecture in the data center. It enables IT to better meet performance demands of applications and the retention demands of unstructured data. Ideally the organization can reduce the size

How Object Storage Makes a Hybrid Array Better

In our last blog, Storage Switzerland discussed how a hybrid array, with a properly sized flash tier, could provide similar performance to an all-flash array while substantially reducing costs. The next step in storage architecture design is to use the

Designing an All-Flash Data Management Strategy

Thanks to decreasing flash media pricing and data efficiency technologies like deduplication, all-flash arrays are now commonplace in many data centers. In most cases though, the purchases of first generation all-flash arrays were to solve a specific performance problem. Now

Making a Hybrid Array Work for the Enterprise

Hybrid storage systems create a performance concern for IT professionals. The system may respond too slowly to user or application requests for data. If the hybrid system places data on the wrong storage tier at the wrong time, it validates

SlideShare: The All-Flash Fix – How to Create a Hybrid Storage Architecture

The All-Flash Data Center was supposed to eliminate all storage problems and allow the application architecture to scale to new heights. The problem is data capacities are growing faster than the cost per GB of flash can decrease. Most data

The Math Behind Storage Architecture Design

The speed at which the data center is evolving is forcing IT to sacrifice proper storage architecture design. IT is just trying to keep its head above water; it doesn’t have time to swim. This reality leads to a primary

White Paper: Even All-Flash Needs a Data Management Strategy

All-Flash Arrays (AFA) have one stunning attribute. They are fast. In some cases, an AFA provides more performance than the typical data center needs. As a result, it seems that AFAs render traditional data management practices obsolete. AFAs are typically
