Combatting Planned Obsolescence In Storage Technology

Published By: DataCore     Published Date: Apr 23, 2019
Innovations in data storage technology come with surprising frequency as competitors constantly leapfrog each other. That’s both good and bad. Good because they promise to solve pressing performance, reliability and cost problems. Bad because they often render perfectly good equipment prematurely obsolete.

Primary Flash Market Evolving to Next-Generation Architectures

Published By: Pure Storage     Published Date: Oct 09, 2018
As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.

Supercharge Your Apps with All-Flash Storage

Published By: Hewlett Packard Enterprise     Published Date: May 11, 2018
The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.

It's Time to Move Your Critical Data to SSD's

Published By: Micron     Published Date: Oct 14, 2016
Today’s IT professionals are well aware that users expect fast, reliable access to ever-growing amounts of data – from web content, to videos, to business intelligence data and more. Meeting the challenges of this exponential growth is nearly impossible with existing, spinning media storage technology. Hard disk drives (HDDs) have been the standard in data storage for decades, but they can no longer satisfy. They create bottlenecks in data access, they fail to meet the growing demands of higher user expectations, and they consume too much power. Download to learn how to solve this issue.

Snapshot Management & Replication: A Buyer’s Checklist

Published By: Commvault     Published Date: Jul 06, 2016
Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments. This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.

IT Central Station Whitepaper Flash Array Storage: Best Practices, Tips, and Advice from Real Users

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Jan 11, 2016
The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.

NetApp Hybrid Array with Flash Pool Technology

Published By: NetApp     Published Date: Feb 19, 2015
NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate. In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario. In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.

NexGen Hybrid Flash Array Comparison Guide

Published By: NexGen     Published Date: Feb 09, 2015
Looking for the right Flash Array for you? Tired of all data being treated the same but want to save time and budget? Flash storage is helping to address the latency inherent with disk drives, enabling you to virtualize more, and reduce application response times. It's an inescapable fact that the $/GB of flash is much higher than disk drives. So why do the majority of storage vendors indiscriminately accelerate all data, regardless of its value to your business? All-flash arrays waste money by storing non-critical data in flash, and hybrid arrays can't control whether mission-critical or non-critical data accesses flash, leading to unpredictable performance. So what do you do to find a solution that addresses both of these issues? Download now and see NexGen's approach to value-driven data management. Make it simple to control what data is stored in flash and affordably tailor application performance to match your organizations priorities now! - See more at: http://www.findwhitep
