Micron Ships New Data Center SSDs, Teases DDR5

Micron today launched its 7400 series solid state drives (SSDs), a new family of fourth-generation PCIe-based NVMe devices that should give data center operators more storage bang for their buck. The company also talked Read more…

Persistent Memory Can Change the Way Enterprises Navigate Advanced Analytics

175 zettabytes. That is IDC’s prediction for how much data will exist in the world by 2025. This data is generated by millions of devices – everything from the cell phone in my pocket and PC in my home office, to th Read more…

Storage in the Exabyte Era

Back in 2010, a petabyte was considered a lot of data for a single company to have. But today, petabyte is child’s play, and the biggest enterprises are managing data stored in the exabyte range. Finding economical way Read more…

Micron Delivers 3D XPoint Drive, Acquires FPGA Device Maker

Micron Technology today unveiled the X100, a new solid-state drive based on 3D XPoint technology that the company claims is the fastest in the world. It introduced two other NAND and NVMe-based SSDs at its show in San Fr Read more…

Inside Hitachi Vantara’s Very Ambitious Data Agenda

FPGAs and object storage systems. NVMe storage and ML model management. IoT edge computing and converged server infrastructure. It would be a big understatement to say that Hitachi Vantara has a lot going on, but it also Read more…

The Network is the New Storage Bottleneck

Along with the data center storage capacity explosion and the major shift in storage architecture from scale-up to scale out, there is one more trend which is not only effecting storage but also networking. This third Read more…

Which Type of SSD is Best: SATA, SAS, or PCIe?

So you've decided to implement solid state drives (SSDs) to speed up your access to data. That's great! But now comes the tough part: picking the right drive to use. There are a variety of types of SSDs, including those Read more…

Solid-State Drive Makers Eye Big Data Markets

Flash and other forms of solid-state memory are increasingly being leveraged as high-end storage solutions. As hard-disk drives in servers failed to keep pace with data loads, generating performance bottlenecks, solid-state drives are finding more big data applications as customers ingest billions of data points on a daily basis. Read more…

Amazon Goes SSD with RedShift ‘Dense Compute Nodes’

Do you have a need for speed in your data warehouse? In January, Amazon rolled out a new version of its Redshift online data store that's powered by solid state disks (SSD). According to benchmarks, the Dense Compute Nodes proved anywhere from four to eight times faster than the traditional nodes, at the same price level. Read more…

Big Data and The SSD Mystique

This week Josh Goldstein argues that big data is an area that can truly benefit from storage innovation based on SSDs. He claims that many organizations are currently constrained in the types of analytics they’re able to perform because it is impossible or uneconomical to perform the queries using today’s storage technology – even when accelerated by SSDs....
