The world's second largest semiconductor foundry is getting into MRAM, a high-performance, long-life alternative to flash. Here's what that means for storage.
In the APM market, we're seeing a battle between best-of-breed, single-function products versus components of larger management frameworks. CA's APM is a part of its management framework and should be attractive to those using that framework.
Dell is ramping up its storage product line with high-performance enterprise capabilities, including all-flash and hyper-converged appliances.
Organizations are seeking ways to reduce their storage costs while also improving performance, reliability and manageability. Atlantis Computing believes that its USX addresses these requirements for virtual applications.
If the power savings and performance claims pan out, these DIMMs will be popular in large memory applications — VM servers, in-memory databases — where DRAM power is a significant cost and more performance is always welcome.
Making flash SSDs look like disks isn't easy. In fact, advanced high-performance SSDs use more power and run much hotter than disks. They aren't your father's thumb drive.
The vertically stacked data layers promise faster performance than solid-state drives using conventional NAND flash memory, but at a higher price.
NetApp launched FAS8080 EX, which is designed for extreme performance and can use an all-flash configuration, and the FAS2500, which is an entry level storage array.
