How to get the most out of solid-state technology

Our research shows solid-state technology usage is skyrocketing, with more than a third of data storage shops using flash now. Dennis Martin, a leading expert on solid-state storage, describes how companies can use the still costly storage to their best advantage, citing specific implementations to support a variety of applications.

With the BYOD movement, employees are using their own mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to access corporate data. Often, the data gets stored in a commercial file-sharing and synching service where it can be protected properly. In-house sync-and-share apps and new management features of commercial applications are helping to address this growing problem.

LTFS, introduced with the LTO-5 tape spec, makes tape look like a regular file share. This capability makes tape more useful than ever, and may be just the thing that saves it from extinction.
