May 16, 2013 12:46 PMFusion-io CEO David Flynn and CMO Rick White have departed the flash memory company just weeks after acquiring NexGen Storage, a startup. Reports say Fusion-io's board wasn't satisfied with revenue growth.
April 25, 2013 02:17 PMFusion-io, a maker of PCIe flash cards, announced it was acquiring hybrid storage array startup NexGen, which sells a flash-optimized system. Fusion-io will sell NexGen’s software directly to integrators.
April 02, 2013 09:26 AMLet's get rid of traditional PCIe slots and move all the cable connections to the front of the server. We'll get compelling maintenance and operational advantages. Here's how and why.
February 22, 2013 11:20 AMVirident is releasing software that makes PCIe flash behave more like a SAN or distributed cache, expanding the performance boost of PCIe flash across multiple servers.
January 29, 2013 09:53 AMSeagate announced a $40 million investment in Virident, which makes flash-based PCIe cards for servers. The move underlines the broad expansion of flash storage into multiple sectors of the enterprise market.
June 28, 2012 09:00 AMSSDs aren't for just laptops and desktops--there is room for server SSDs. Learn why, and why people are gun-shy about server-side SSD use.
April 20, 2012 09:00 AMNext week I’m off to sunny San Jose for the first Solid State Symposium and Storage Field Day. While Storage Field Day follows the general blogger’s tech-day format, the Solid State Symposium is a public event on Wednesday, when we’ll try to wrangle the future of solid state storage out of the sponsoring vendors and industry luminaries.
March 01, 2012 09:00 AMMy last post discussed, or at least mentioned, all the startups, and re-startups, building storage systems designed around flash memory that have made public announcements. Most startups spend the time they're developing Version 1.0 of their products in stealth mode so they can pop up fully formed like Athena from the skull of Zeus. We at DeepStorage have developed our own startup detection system that ferrets out those flying under the radar. In this column we'll look at a pair of stealth startups: XtremIO and Proximal Data.
February 21, 2012 11:00 AMAt last month's FAST (File and Storage Technologies) conference, researchers from UCSD and Microsoft Research presented a paper, titled "The Bleak Future of NAND Flash Memory" that's put the rosy all-flash-all-the-time future predicted by some in doubt for the long term. The gist of the paper's argument is that the physics of flash, and the researchers' testing, indicate that as flash density increases, the life and performance of flash will degrade to the point that by 2024 flash will no longer be a viable solution.
February 07, 2012 09:00 AMThe storage cognoscenti have been all atwitter this morning as EMC announces the details of Project Lightning, the flash-based server cache solution it previewed last May at EMCworld. The first version of the renamed VFCache is now available, and it's clearly a version 1.0 product. Hopefully, EMC will get some of the road map items out the door, as well as the just announced Thunder, soon.
