Gain an Extra Hour of Battery Life With Crucial MX100 SSD

Jon Tanguy   |   November 13, 2014   |   Storage

As long as my Crucial MX100 solid state drive (SSD) is installed in my Ultrabook™, I can fly all the way from San Francisco to Tokyo and work nonstop—without needing a back-up battery or a boost from the seatback power outlet. If I can stay awake, so can my computer! It makes my work trips much more productive and pleasant—even though I’m usually relegated to coach. I digress … back to the matter at hand: battery life and SSDs.

Doug's IT Tech Tip: Extracting the True Value of SSDs in the Big Data Ecosystem

Doug Rollins   |   November 10, 2014   |   Storage

My last tech tip, Hadoop + SSDs Don’t Create Great Value—Yet, generated quite a few discussions, which social media experts tell me is a good thing–and I agree. I think it’s important that we have honest conversations about all use cases for SSDs and Flash in the enterprise. This way, we can decide where SSDs are actually adding value and where work still needs to be done for that value to be truly recognized. That is why we’re known as a trusted advisor for our enterprise customers: We provide them with a “voice of reason” about where and how Flash is best used in the enterprise.

Doug's IT Tech Tip: Hadoop + SSDs Don’t Create Great Value—Yet

Doug Rollins   |   November 5, 2014   |   Storage

In my last IT Tech Tip blog, I discussed how raw performance is no way to measure value—both in the car industry or the IT industry—and I began to discuss the much-buzzed-about Hadoop and its use with solid state drives (SSDs). Keep in mind—I’m talking about Hadoop and its distributed file system (HDFS) —as we know them today.

First, consider that the size of the “chunk” that an HDFS reads is huge, and the reads tend to be sequential. So how do you get value using an SSD that is optimized for very small random accesses? Well to be blunt, you won’t if using an HDFS today.

Doug's IT Tech Tip: Raw Performance Is NO Way to Measure Value

Doug Rollins   |   November 3, 2014   |   Storage

Everybody loves fast, right? Instant noodles, instant cocoa, microwave popcorn—yeah, the faster, the better! So why, then, do I drive a Toyota Yaris and not some “fire-breathing monster” of a sports car? It’s simple. When I went car shopping for a new(er) commuter car, I looked at the overall value of the car rather than its absolute “0 to 60 to 0” (miles per hour) performance. The Yaris offered the best overall value: It’s big enough for my family, fast enough to keep pace on the freeway, easy enough to drive and park, cheap enough to buy and operate, and economical enough, with pretty good gas mileage.

Doug's 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.

M600 SSD’s Dynamic Write Acceleration Boosts Performance and Value

Jon Tanguy   |   September 16, 2014   |   Storage

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.

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.

Lessons from Linley

Ryan Baxter   |   February 21, 2014   |   Events

Though I left Boise the morning of February 5 at 0-dark-hundred to catch a puddle-jumper down to SFO, my morning fatigue soon waned as I found myself standing under bright lights at a Hyatt Regency podium a little after 10 a.m. addressing a room full of engineers and system architects. This was my second appearance at the annual Linley Data Center Conference which was held in Santa Clara, CA February 5-6.  One of several conferences put on by the well-respected research group, this event co...

Accelerating System Bandwidth with Serial Memory Solutions Using Hybrid Memory Cube Technology

Jay Walstrum   |   January 29, 2014   |   All Products

For over 4 years, Micron and Altera have been collaborating on HMC technologies. This ongoing work led to the industry’s first demonstration of a working HMC controller, announced last September and demonstrated at the Supercomputing ’13 Conference in Denver. The working demonstration board consists of one Micron® HMC short reach (SR) device and four 28nm Altera Stratix V FPGAs, each of which has 40 GB/s of bandwidth for 160 GB/s of total bandwidth. This demonstration of Strati...
