  • Almost time for SSD flash storage to be used with object storage

    Feature -As the price of flash SSD storage continues to fall, it becomes more attractive for object storage, which otherwise counts on big, slow and cheap HDDs.

  • 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.

Solid state storage technology from searchSolidStateStorage.com

  • flash file system

    Definition -Flash file systems are designed specifically for memory devices. A well-designed flash device and flash file system ensure flash-based capabilities are used efficiently.

  • Flash memory vs. RAM: What's the difference?

    Feature -Even though vendors refer to flash memory and conventional RAM -- the main memory of your PC or server -- as solid-state memory, these two memory types are very different.

  • IOPS (input/output operations per second)

    Definition -IOPS measures the maximum number of reads and writes to non-contiguous storage. It is not an actual benchmark since vendor numbers can vary from real-world performance.

  • Differences between SSD caching and tiering technologies

    Tip -Brien Posey looks at popular ways of using SSD as cache, including write-around, write-through and write-back, as well as how the technology compares with SSD tiering.

  • Flash storage caching boosts application performance, requires balance

    Feature -Chris Evans discusses the benefits to caching flash storage, the trade-offs involved and flash cache models, as well as a handy cheat sheet.

  • Copy management system saves storage space, cash

    E-Zine -Having a multitude of copies of primary data is a waste of precious storage space, resources and money. It also presents security and compliance risks. A copy management system reduces storage requirements, costs and dangers by enabling rapid and easy access to copy data and greater control over the entire copy data lifecycle.

    Caching preserves active copies of data on high-performance media while maintaining primary versions on cheaper disk or flash. With a small amount of cache, you can speed up most I/O requests to improve application performance much more economically than storing all data on expensive fast media.

    Veritas and Veeam emerge as the clear winners for this year's backup Quality Awards. They led a combined field of 15 product lines, with Veritas landing in the winner's circle for this first time in four years and upstart Veeam scoring an unprecedented three-peat.
