  • Server-side caching defined and clarified

    Server-side caching, or flash storage installed in the server itself, is deployed to accelerate application performance. Placing the flash as close to the application as possible reduces latency and improves performance.

    Over the past couple of years, there has been a lot of development in this area, and today, there are a number of ways that you can insert flash storage into a server. For example, you can use SATA form factor SSDs that install in place of traditional hard disk drives. Or you can use flash storage that connects directly to the PCIe bus. An emerging option is to attach flash storage directly to the server's memory channel via dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slots. Each, of course, comes with strengths and weaknesses.

    There are also a variety of standards emerging for server-side caching that are important to understand when selecting a product.

    This Drill Down on server-side flash will compare and contrast the variety of ways that you can deploy the technology today to help readers better understand the pros and cons to each approach. It will also explain when server-side caching is a better (or worse) alternative to an all-flash or hybrid-flash storage array. There's so much going on in this space today that it can be hard to stay on top of it all. This Drill Down will help.

  • Hyper-converged infrastructure vendors offer range of storage options

    Hyper-converged infrastructure vendors have integrated software-defined storage, compute and networking into easy-to-use, turnkey appliances. But the transition from a traditional, three-tier architecture to a hyper-converged data center can take getting used to. That's why it's important to carefully assess hyper-converged infrastructure vendors and the HCI appliances they offer when making this change. We'll show you ways to simplify the process.

    Today, we mostly store unstructured data on NFS-based NAS file servers. More efficient, flexible and practical object storage is a rising alternative, however, particularly in products that layer file-based interfaces on top of object-based storage for the best of both worlds.

    Tiering and caching can make a huge difference in active data storage performance. These two processes work in different ways, however. Tiering is about more than distributing data into hot, warm and cold tiers, while caching increases the speed of reads and writes. Both tiering and caching require choices.
