What’s Causing the Recent String of Data Breaches? Micron Talks to Wave Systems' Data Security Expert to Uncover the Answer

Jon Tanguy   |   October 24, 2014   |   Storage

National Cyber Security Awareness Month

It’s Cyber Security Awareness month, which has me wondering: are we doing all we can to protect our data? To help answer this question, I sat down with Girish Bhat of Wave Systems—an important collaborator of Micron’s—to talk all things encryption. Bhat is encryption extraordinaire (AKA, Director of Product Marketing); he shed some light on how data breaches have evolved over the last few years, he waxed poetic about the role of hardware encryption within the bigger “security package,” and he stressed the importance of standards and specifications to securing user data. Read our conversation below.

IT Tech Tip: How to Interview an SSD Vendor for Your VDI Deployments

Doug Rollins   |   October 20, 2014   |   Storage

I’m the first to admit it: In the enterprise SSD world, I’m an ”insider”—and in this case, that’s not a bad thing. I work in Micron’s Storage Business Unit, specifically with enterprise SSDs. As an enterprise SSD insider, I wanted to pull back the covers a bit and take a frank look at what SSDs can (and can’t) do to help overcome the challenges faced by so many IT shops on a daily basis.

Is Your Hardware Trash Secure?

Jon Tanguy   |   October 15, 2014   |   Storage

Data security isn’t just about protecting the data you want to keep. Once you store anything, that hardware—and its retirement—becomes part of your data protection strategy. Believe it or not, tens of thousands of HDDs and SSDs are retired by corporations every day! These old drives cannot simply be thrown away. The data must be completely irretrievable before they’re thrown out, so that no one can rummage through the trash and find valuable data. With older technology l...

Do You Know Where Your Data Is?

Jon Tanguy   |   October 9, 2014   |   Storage

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the United States. There’s no argument that we need it—every week, stories emerge of new data hacks and identity thefts. Reading headlines can be overwhelming and demoralizing, but there are steps you can take to keep control of your personal data. Data security issues are probably most apparent when data is being transferred from one machine to another and into the cloud. But endpoint security is just as important. When I say ...

VSAN Demo 2014: A How-To Guide

Jared Hulbert   |   September 17, 2014   |   Storage

Now that the team is back from VMWorld, we wanted to share the configuration for our VSAN demo that drew so much attention. This blog is intended to give you the high-level view of how we created the demo and provide some ideas for your own VSAN explorations. We documented other information such as node configurations, VSAN observer settings, and fio test workloads but didn’t provide it here for brevity’s sake. We’d love to hear comments and questions from anyone who wants to know more; post your comments below.

Our primary goal was to demonstrate best-in-class VSAN performance and show how that compared to a standard VSAN configured with SAS HDDs. One of the most interesting aspects of our configuration was that our M500 client SSDs were actually less expensive than the SAS 10K HDDs.

Micron M600 SSD for Client Computing and Ultrathin Laptops

Along with our release of the new M600 SSD for the client computing market, we are very excited to introduce a new feature called dynamic write acceleration. Dynamic write acceleration is the most efficient method of managing the SSD’s NAND media; it optimizes performance while delivering maximum value to the end user. In this post, I’ll provide a little background on what it does and why it’s needed.

Why Arira Platforms Built an HMC Evaluation Board

Dan Williams   |   August 1, 2014   |   Memory

HMCDan Williams, Vice President Sales & Marketing / Arira Platforms

Tools and resources for customer testing and evaluation are key to the success of any emerging technology.  Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) is no different.  At Arira, we saw the potential in HMC and started to consider creating an HMC evaluation board and development kit in April 2011. The platform would be used by customers to perform detailed evaluations of HMC performance in their specific applications and would enable the HMC to be exercised via a program written by that customer. The power supply design would have to enable monitoring of power levels on individual rails to both the HMC and the FPGAs.

Micron 16nm NAND Awarded Semiconductor of the Year

Naga Chandrasekaran   |   July 31, 2014   |   Storage

Last week, Ramin Ghodsi and I had the honor of accepting TechInsights Semiconductor of the Year award on behalf of our process and product development teams. It’s the second time in a row our NAND process technology has won this award, and marks an important third-party recognition of our cell designs. TechInsights does an exceedingly thorough analysis of the semiconductor design—down to the cellular level—and chooses winners based on the innovation in the design and its impact on the marketplace.
