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.

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.

Q&A: Three Keys to Choosing the Right Server Flash

Corporate Communication   |   June 20, 2014   |   All Products

If your data center applications are struggling to keep pace with user demand, you may be looking to SSDs to close the gap.  While SSDs will generally offer a host of performance advantages over hard disk drives (‘HDDs’), not all SSDs are the same, and neither is the NAND flash inside them.

I recently did a webinar with Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst George Crump during which we discussed this very topic – how do we choose the ‘right’ solid state storage for data center applications?

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...

PCIe SSD Installation Is Easy: Part 2

Doug Rollins   |   January 15, 2014   |   All Products

In my last post, we debunked the myth that installing PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs is hard. In fact, it’s about as easy as turning a screw and counting to four. We’ve already turned the screw (see part 1), so now let’s finish up the installation in four easy steps. "Counting to Four" I’m using a Windows server in this example, but a Linux setup is easy too. Micron supplies the driver and a PCIe SSD management application in a single package. How cool is that?  So we&rsqu...

PCIe SSD Installation Is Easy: Part 1

Doug Rollins   |   January 8, 2014   |   All Products

PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs are like a good cup of French Roast coffee with a nice, fresh bagel on a crisp winter’s morning…when the sun’s just coming up over the horizon… Good stuff. So how on earth do coffee and bagels relate to SSDs? I can’t roast my own beans, but I like coffee; and I can’t make my own onion and garlic bagel from scratch, but I sure like it when the bagel shop does. We tend to think of PCIe SSDs in the same way. We know we can buy a system w...

Not All SSDs Are Created Equal: Optimizing Performance Through Flash Management

Doug Rollins   |   July 9, 2013   |   All Products

To get the most out of solid state storage, you must be privy to a little secret: not all solid state drives (SSDs) are created equal. Optimal SSD performance and reliability rely heavily on all of the drive’s parts—the controller, the firmware, and the NAND Flash itself—working and playing nicely together. Well-thought-out and strategic Flash management helps this kindergarten lesson become a storage reality.  As George Crump, lead analyst for Storage Switzerland, d...
