May 15, 2013 08:05 PMAn IaaS provider is using all-SSD arrays and storage QoS to ensure that some tenants can’t disrupt performance of others by overconsuming resources.
April 22, 2013 11:53 AMIBM claims all-flash arrays are now more economical than traditional hard disks for Tier-1 storage. Is it time to ditch spinning disks?
March 29, 2013 02:36 PMI built my own SAN to meet some storage needs at my job. In a series of posts I’ll cover the reasons why, how I did it, and the hardware and software I used.
March 27, 2013 03:42 PMSoftware-defined storage? Old news. Non-volatile memory? Same deal. Rogue business units that get around IT with a credit card and outside resources? I was doing it long before SaaS showed up.
March 15, 2013 02:18 PMStorage startups are getting interest—and money—from storage vendors and flash manufacturers. But investment doesn’t always mean the promise of viability.
March 05, 2013 01:58 PMThe rise of SSDs has also resurrected the single-controller architecture--along with its single point of failure. IT shouldn't gamble on high availability just for flash's amped-up performance.
February 20, 2013 03:25 PMStartup PernixData uses a distributed, replicated write-back cache to take full advantage of SSDs in server-side caching while addressing the risks of server failure and data loss.
January 30, 2013 08:03 PMSolid-state is creeping into every nook of the storage ecosystem. The next frontier could be the rebirth of hybrids. Case in point is a startup that combines SSDs and traditional disks to maximize both performance and capacity.
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.
January 14, 2013 11:38 AMSolid-state hard drives (SSHDs) offer the speed of all-flash drives and the capacity of traditional disk. But increased capacity and falling costs of SSDs may negate those advantages in the notebook market.
