What do you do when storage sales slow down? If you’re Dell EMC, you add velocity to the sales process. “Storage velocity” was a frequently used term during Dell’s earnings call this morning. On ...
SAN technology and arrays Get Started
Bring yourself up to speed with our introductory content
SATA Express (SATAe or Serial ATA Express) is a bus interface to connect storage devices to a computer motherboard, supporting SATA and PCI Express protocols simultaneously. Continue Reading
Some think Fibre Channel will go the way of the dodo thanks to Ethernet, but the evolution of flash will cause companies to make the leap to 32-gig FC eventually. Continue Reading
A hybrid hard drive (HHD), sometimes known as a solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD), is a mass storage device that combines a conventional hard disk drive and a NAND flash module. Continue Reading
Evaluate SAN technology and arrays Vendors & Products
Weigh the pros and cons of technologies, products and projects you are considering.
Sixth generation Fibre Channel has the potential to solve fabric-level bottlenecks, but companies tend to choose Ethernet because it has evolved more rapidly. Continue Reading
Expect NVMe to supplant SCSI and SAS protocols for SSD storage and NVMe over Fabrics to find a place in high-end networking deployments for transporting data. Continue Reading
Although SSD vs. HDD speed is vastly different, for the foreseeable future, hard disks will have a place in our increasingly solid-state and even DRAM-centered data centers. Continue Reading
Manage SAN technology and arrays
Learn to apply best practices and optimize your operations.
All-flash arrays have virtually eliminated flash storage performance issues, for now. But applications and user expectations will eventually catch up. Innovations in flash technology -- such as nonvolatile memory express and storage-class memory (... Continue Reading
Effective user-centric data storage management eases copy data management and object storage uptake while enabling secondary storage services to evolve. Continue Reading
Making flash storage performance even faster has little to do with the media itself and more to do with the storage infrastructure that surrounds it. Continue Reading
Problem Solve SAN technology and arrays Issues
We’ve gathered up expert advice and tips from professionals like you so that the answers you need are always available.
RAID can enable better storage performance and higher availability, and there are many different RAID types. Read about the different levels of RAID and where they work best. Continue Reading
Faster storage -- and more of it -- is important, but that wouldn't matter if new SANs didn't boost application performance and efficiency in the process. Continue Reading
NVMe improves the performance of flash storage, driving consumers to use it for performance problems even if it only leads to minimal gains in latency or throughput. Continue Reading
