How to Reduce the Cost of Performance Storage

The advent of solid-state disk (SSD) media and non-volatile memory express (NVMe) protocols makes storage cost optimization more important than ever before.

SSDs offer more capacity per unit than hard disk drives (HDDs), and they continue to become denser as the technology matures. Meanwhile, NVMe delivers faster performance and lower latency to this media, and new networking interfaces such as 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) increase bandwidth. All of this innovation comes at a price premium, creating the need to harness all the performance available from the storage media effectively.

Innovation Over Integration Yields Unprecedented Storage Efficiency

We live in an age of tremendous storage hardware innovation. Solid-state drives (SSDs) that are capable of delivering more than 100,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) in raw performance have hit the market. The reality, though, is that customers are not getting the full benefits of these innovations. They are only able to obtain a […]

How to Reduce the Cost of Storage Operations

Storage managers have always been pressured to do more with less. That pressure intensifies as the volume of data explodes, as the number of performance-hungry workloads grows, and as faster-performing but also more expensive storage technologies such as solid-state drives (SSDs) and non-volatile memory express drives (NVMe) enter the equation. Delivering the throughput, processing power, […]

Why Does IT Buy New Storage?

Storage environments have been historically siloed Infrastructure is dedicated specifically for production, backup and archive use cases, and each environment or workload often receives its own dedicated storage infrastructure. This fragmentation is becoming exacerbated as hyperconverged infrastructure, cloud storage services, and a new tier of performance-hungry workloads enter the equation. Quickly, IT organizations are faced […]
