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?
November 12, 2012 03:33 PMStorage quality of service (QoS) aims to make storage performance more predictable without the need to over-allocate resources. We’ll look at the ins and outs of this emerging concept.
