Access "Flash storage technology decisions"

Issue Overview

Storage magazine - April 2014 Vol. 13 No. 2

Just about as quickly as we learn the merits of a new solid-state form factor, a new one appears. While the use and location of spinning disk storage is limited, solid-state offers a number of deployment and form-factor alternatives, including server-based storage, hybrid arrays, acceleration appliances and all-flash arrays. The best solution will depend on the specific problem you're using flash storage technology to solve.

Cloud storage promises unlimited capacity, ubiquitous access and lower storage bills -- but is it appropriate for all applications? We look at some typical business apps and determine how much of the storage associated with those apps can be moved to cloud storage services.

While it's not so popular as a storage operating system anymore, Windows Server does boast some sophisticated storage managements features -- especially in the latest "R2" release of WinServer 2012.
