Lightboard Video: The Importance of Flash Architectures in Real-Time Workloads

Data centers are adjusting to the flash performance opportunity and are scaling their traditional environments much larger, pushing the storage systems’ architecture much harder than when all-flash arrays were first introduced. These organizations are also introducing real-time applications, like artificial

Consolidation: The Key to Early NVMe Success

As Storage Switzerland previously blogged, non-volatile memory express (NVMe) access protocols stand to add value to a host of applications, ranging from the performance-intensive newer workload set (e.g. artificial intelligence) to more traditional Tier 1 applications (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server).

Do Deduplication and Compression Impact All-Flash Performance?

For most IT shops, flash storage has become an established component of the storage architecture. The conversation has become less about whether or not the performance acceleration that flash technologies provide is needed; it has become more about which workloads

Does NVMe Flash Mean the End of SAS Flash?

Before NVMe, most flash systems were either serial attached SCSI (SAS) or Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) based. In all-flash arrays, SAS was the preferred protocol because of its higher bandwidth and ability to support multi-port connections. NVMe is the

Does NVMe Flash Have to Mean Featureless Flash?

The primary goal of the NVMe standard is to reduce latency. It accomplishes this by leveraging the PCIe interface and increasing both command counts and queue depth. NVMe Flash Systems however, are more than just the flash media. Vendors create

Does NVMe Flash Have to Be End-to-End

One of the advantages of the NVMe Flash standard is that it is networkable. NVMe over Fabrics (NVMf) brings direct attach storage like latency to shared storage systems. NVMf eliminates the need for modern applications like Hadoop and others to
