  • 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.

  • 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.
