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
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
With support for block, file or both types of data on the same device, unified storage architecture is a flexible storage option for the modern data center. Continue Reading
