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...

Enterprise-Class NAND: Coming to a Server Near You

Kevin Kilbuck   |   December 17, 2008   |  

Hey guys. The MAST folks asked me to get the blog up to speed on a very exciting announcement—our Enterprise NAND. In a nutshell, Enterprise NAND is a very high endurance SLC NAND device.  It has a write/erase cycle endurance of 1 million cycles. Seriously cool--that’s 10X standard NAND. So, what does it mean? Well, it means that NAND, in its various flavors, can play and perform in everything from thumb drives to performance SSDs and now, it also has a home in high endurance, high-transaction a...

HDD & SSD Counseling: "Prunes are Great!"

blogadmin   |   November 20, 2008   |   Storage

Unlike an SSD that has a measured and graceful life span--with time to coordinate a retirement, HDDs often die with absolutely no warning. And this traumatic event often takes our most valuable information to the grave. Our fifth “Counseling Session” video allows us to lament with poor HDD, as he mourns the nature of his mortality and worries about his own impending, and unpredictable, demise. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqaLg95ZlSU

HDD & SSD Counseling: "I like calling it nappy-time ..."

blogadmin   |   November 10, 2008   |   Storage

HDDs crash. We've all experienced it. In fact, in the largest study of its kind, Google found that HDDs crash even more often than their manufacturers predict … and once an HDD has demonstrated an error, it's likely to fail again--soon. In this third installment of our ”Counseling Sessions“ videos, we continue to have a bit of fun at HDD's expense and learn how devastating an HDD crash can be. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7R8ZPRNI8yc

HDD & SSD Counseling: "How long was I out?"

blogadmin   |   November 6, 2008   |   Storage

We talk a lot about the things that differentiate solid state storage from traditional spinning platters—be it at the enterprise level or in the laptop right in front of me. Perhaps as a relief to that intense level of focus, we made a series of videos to have some fun with the performance issues in HDDs. Of course, in reality, these are real challenges. But in this short vignette, it’s all fun and games as a counselor questions an HDD about some personal problems he's been having lately. httpv...
