That’s our mantra this week at VMworld 2015: “Make it SOLID.” Last year at VMworld, Micron demonstrated the all-flash version of VMware’s Virtual SAN (VSAN). This demonstration prompted VMware’s engineers to work with us to accelerate their support for an all-flash Virtual SAN, which was introduced back in February.

Realizing the Future With Next-Generation Memories

Today we wear more computing power and have more communication capability on our wrists than could have been imagined even a half century ago. Watches not only tell us the time, but remind us of appointments, measure our heart rate, count the number of flights of stairs we climb, measure our sleep, record how long and where we workout, and respond to text messages. We are living in the aptly named “Information Age.”

Steve Jobs famously compared a 4.3” phone (which is now considered small) as “Hummers.” But none of that mattered as consumers happily bought their “Hummers” by the millions. More, in this case, was better, at least as far as consumers were concerned.

SAS is Dead; Long Live SAS!

With all of the attention around PCIe-based storage offerings, it is not difficult to understand why some believe that Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) as a storage interface has run its course. After all, do we really need three different storage interfaces for SSDs?
