Vertical Integration

Rely on our drive and media-level expertise to help optimize your data center.



As follow-on to my June post about Understanding Effective Workloads, I wanted to spend some time focusing on the critical design and operational characteristics specific to database workload activities. When I/O workload characteristics are well understood, it is easier to choose the right solution for delivering outstanding overall database performance.


It might not be as easy as placing an order at your nearest coffee shop, but the pervasiveness of virtualization in the data center is creating a multitude of different virtual storage area network (VSAN) options. It is probably easy to guess our flavor when it comes to VSAN—make it SOLID!


We’ve teamed up with WPG Americas to offer our first-ever joint roadshow event, The Future is Solid, in three cities this fall. Coming to Chicago (Oct. 7), Boston (Oct. 13) and Jersey City (Oct. 15), this unique, half-day event will bring together thought leaders, industry experts and IT professionals to discuss...


A medical device maker has turned to Micron to meet its multiple memory and storage requirements, which include DRAM and SSDs. GeaCom Inc. (Duluth, Minn.) created Phrazer, a medical device that enables doctors and healthcare providers to evaluate patient status and explain actions through recorded video and touch screen interaction in any language in the world.


Enterprise-grade SSDs have become a mainstay of IT’s data centers. Because they have no moving parts, they excel with highly random workloads. No moving parts mean that there is no delay when reading randomly distributed data – no waiting for the head to swing back and forth in an SSD.


PostgreSQL, one of the original open-source relational database management systems (RDBMS), is seeing a strong resurgence in the industry. A recent Gartner report states that “By 2018, more than 70% of new in-house applications will be developed on an open-source RDBMS, and 50% of existing commercial RDBMS instances will have been converted or will be in process.”


If you follow these things, then you know that 3D NAND has the industry buzzing. Of course it does, because it’s our future. It puts flash memory on an aggressive scaling curve, meaning we’ll achieve capacity points and cost per gigabyte reductions that enable new applications. 3D NAND also promises to “set the clock back” in terms of performance and reliability...


“Latency kills revenues.” If you had the pleasure of attending VMworld in San Francisco this week, you probably heard this in the keynote presentation. And it’s absolutely true. Let me explain...


We had a very busy summer, one that reached its high point in mid-August with the Flash Memory Summit (FMS). During our FMS keynote, we brought Geoffrey Moore, author of the book Crossing the Chasm, on stage to guide our industry leaders on the challenges and next steps to speed the adoption of flash storage and take it into the mainstream.


The Flash Memory Summit is one of the most significant conferences held annually to address the latest developments and market trends in flash memory. Just as we have been every year, Micron was at the 2015 conference, where we shared our vision for a SOLID future.


Businesses don’t stand still, and database administrators need to keep one step ahead just to stay in the game. But keeping up with the complexities and mechanics of everyday DBA tasks leaves little time to focus on the strategic efforts needed to move the business forward. What if you could simplify daily operations while reducing cost—creating more time to focus on big...


Today we wear more computing power and have more communication capability on our wrists than could have been imagined even a half century ago. Watches not only tell us the time, but remind us of appointments, measure our heart rate, count the number of flights of stairs we climb, measure our sleep, record how long and where we workout, and respond to text messages. We are...
