Certifiably Awesome: Our Enterprise SSD Receives Rave Reviews

Scott Shadley   |   July 2, 2014   |   All Products

We don’t like to brag about our products like they’re our children (well, no too often, anyway)—but we couldn’t help ourselves from sharing the recent recognition that our M500DC SATA solid state drive (SSD) has been receiving in the industry.

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...

PCIe SSD Beats HDD and NAS Devices in Boot Storm Event

Janene Ellefson   |   June 21, 2013   |   All Products

In my last post, we discussed the growing headache of boot storms for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system users and IT managers. These virtual storms often cause extremely long boot times, which can lead to user frustration, lost productivity, and ultimately, higher costs for the organization. Fortunately, we’ve developed a solution to tame these storms while also improving general system performance. This solution comes in the form of a PCIe solid state drive (SSD) used as a vir...

Tame the Boot Storm

Janene Ellefson   |   May 14, 2013   |   All Products

Minimize the Impact of Boot Storms

If you manage a network of virtual machines, you’ve probably experienced the negative effects of a boot storm too many times. These virtual storms can occur when a large number of users log in to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system simultaneously. If the VDI system employs traditional storage, like hard disk drives (HDDs), bandwidth gets overwhelmed quickly. Slow boot times and reduced productivity ensue, often resulting in frustrated and less-efficient users. Our ultra-high band...

Why Latency Matters

Janene Ellefson   |   April 30, 2013   |   All Products

Latency Matters

When you think about system performance, you have to think latency. In an IT environment, latency affects everything—from efficiency and throughput, to customer satisfaction and operating costs. We are confident that our SSDs can help solve IT latency issues. This video emphasizes the importance of latency using more general, everyday situations.  It’s not often we get to laugh at latency problems. For countless businesses—especially cloud and data center environments&md...

It’s a Great Time to Work in Storage

  |   April 11, 2013   |   All Products

Flash is revolutionizing how we store data. It is the solution of choice for truly reliable portability in today’s popular smartphones and tablets, and it is gaining momentum as the “performance operator” in the data center. And these two applications are undeniably linked—as we demand more mobility and instant access, we need bigger, faster, and more efficient data centers to serve up the content. It’s an exciting time for us. As a start-to-finish developer of soli...
