  • 3.5" SSD (3.5 solid-state drive)

    Definition -A 3.5 solid-state drive (SSD) is a data storage device designed for the 3.5-inch hard disk drive (HDD) form factor. It fits into the drive slot as a same-sized HDD in a portable computer, enterprise server, or storage system.

  • HDD form factor (hard disk drive form factor)

    Definition -HDD form factor is the size or geometry of a hard disk drive, determining the device’s compatibility with the drive bays in a storage array or enclosure, server, portable computer or other computing device.

  • SanDisk boosts CloudSpeed Ultra SSDs for hyperscale

    News -SanDisk upgrades CloudSpeed Ultra SATA SSD, the highest performing SSD of its CloudSpeed family of drives for enterprises and cloud use.

  • Tintri VMstore T5000

    Feature -Like all of its VM-aware storage systems, Tintri’s first all-flash array -- the Tintri VMstore T5000 -- allows admins to bypass LUNs and NAS mount points when provisioning storage.

  • SolidFire SF9605

    Feature -The high-capacity SolidFire SF9605 uses SolidFire’s Element OS 8 (Oxygen) to deliver new enterprise features such as synchronous replication and snapshot automation.

  • HPE 3PAR StoreServ 20850

    Feature -HPE 3PAR StoreServ 20850 holds 1,024 solid-state drives (SSDs). Hewlett Packard Enterprise claims it can deliver more than three million IOPS with sub-millisecond latency.

  • Flash technologies remain hot in 2016, experts predict

    News -Experts predict solid-state technology will remain hot in 2016, leading to the demise of high-speed hard disk drives, as all-flash arrays outsell disk-only systems.

  • Server-side caching gives flash Storage a boost

    E-Handbook -A lot of attention these days is paid to flash in enterprise storage arrays. Technologies such as NVM Express (NVMe) flash and caching software continues to drive speed advances. NVMe flash drives are an alternative to SATA-based solid-state drives (SSDs). They use the PCI Express bus to remove the bottleneck of a SATA controller and improve performance. Unlike shared flash devices, server-based devices that use NVMe access local I/O directly from within the server. Server-side caching software also speeds flash performance by reducing network file traffic and latency. Server-side caching can be implemented at the file level, operating system level and hypervisor level, and each works differently.

    File-level caching enhances performance of a particular application while operating system caching accelerates all hot blocks of data on a server but not as efficiently as file caching. A hypervisor-based cache installs as a component of the hypervisor and caches I/O across all the VMs within that host. Hypervisor caches simplify implementation, but are the least efficient at using flash resources.

  • Flash management important for IT pros, yet overlooked

    Feature -Though hidden from the user, flash management is important for IT professionals. How a flash controller manages NAND flash can impact longevity and performance.

  • Caching, tiering lead flash storage technology

    E-Handbook -Flash management has become more important as vendors push the cost of flash down by using less expensive (and less reliable) flash media. But with so many ways to implement flash storage technology, it can be a bit overwhelming. One popular approach uses the flash storage as a cache for hot data, but there are a number of different -- yet equally beneficial -- approaches for flash caching today.

    In this three-part guide, you'll learn the pros and cons of flash caching, which stores a copy of data temporarily in NAND flash-memory chips, and flash tiering, which moves data exclusively to a flash tier, where it sits for longer periods of time. This guide on flash caching and management compares the different approaches for flash caching today, compares it with flash tiering, discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each flash storage technology approach, and more.

  • Server-side caching has new data center role

    Tip -Some server-side caching products have evolved into complete software-defined storage platforms that can aggregate flash across multiple servers.
