Storage Class Memory Paradigm Still Elusive, but NVMe Is Here to Stay [65498]
eWeek, August 11th, 2017

"Despite all the talk surrounding Storage Class Memory, NVMe-based storage systems are supplying enough speed and throughput to handle the most demanding compute jobs...

There is a lot of agreement over the latest storage technologies that will drive adoption of flash in the enterprise. At the Flash Memory Summit here this week, every major vendor made an announcement based around non-volatile memory express (NVMe) or NVMe over Fabrics (NVMeF)..."

QLC NAND - how real is it and what can we expect from the technology? [65499]
architectingIT, August 11th, 2017

"Since NAND flash storage was first introduced into enterprise computing, we've seen a rapid explosion in the types and capabilities of flash products that can now be deployed in servers, HCI solutions and storage arrays. QLC is the next evolution of cost reducing, space increasing flash technology. What is it and what can we expect it to deliver?

Flash storage works by storing an electrical charge in a cell and using the presence of this charge to determine whether the cell is storing a '0' or a '1'. Flash devices lay down billions of cells on a silicon substrate that can then be used to store gigabytes and now terabytes of information..."

Nimbus Data Unveils 50 Terabyte ExaDrive SSDs [65500]
insideHPC, August 9th, 2017

"Nimbus Data unveiled ExaDrive, a powerful software and multiprocessor solution for next-generation solid state drives. Based on a patent-pending architecture, ExaDrive enables OEMs to offer SSDs with record-breaking storage capacity, unmatched density, superior longevity, and the lowest energy consumption per terabyte.

With an interface and form factor identical to HDDs, but with vastly more capacity, ExaDrive will accelerate flash adoption in the data center. Viking Technology and SMART Modular Technologies recently began shipping 50 TB and 25 TB ExaDrive-powered SSDs for cloud infrastructure, technical computing, and digital content storage..."

Smart Modular Introducing Osmium Drive, 50TB 3.5-Inch SAS SSD [65507]
StorageNewsletter.com, August 8th, 2017

"SMART Modular Technologies, a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., introduced the Osmium Drive. The Osmium Drive is a high-capacity SAS SSDe in a 3.5 inch form-factor.

This MLC-based solid state drive can be integrated into current systems for cloud storage, big data, digital imaging, artificial intelligence computing and other data-intensive data center applications.

The Osmium Drive combines capacity and power efficiency unmatched by conventional HDDs, and is available in capacities of 25TB and 50TB.

With up to 50TB of flash in a single 3.5-inch SAS drive enclosure, the Osmium Drive offers over three times the capacity of most competing SSDs on the market while consuming one-eighth the power per terabyte compared to nearline HDDs..."

HDD vs. SSD: Is there room for disk in a solid-state world? [65368]
SearchStorage, August 2nd, 2017

"Although SSD vs. HDD speed is vastly different, for the foreseeable future, hard disks will have a place in our increasingly solid-state and even DRAM-centered data centers.

Hard disk drives are hard to like. This 60-year-old device is slow and accesses data clumsily, but it stores volumes of data at a price that's hard to beat. Since the middle of the last decade, solid-state drive advocates have argued that SSDs would completely displace HDDs over the following few years. Yet here we are in 2017, and the HDD vs. SSD controversy continues. HDDs still play a greater role than SSDs in PCs and servers, and HDD unit shipments aren't much below 2005 levels..."

Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K v9 HDD Review (SAS, 2.5", 2.4TB) [65332]
StorageReview.com, July 31st, 2017

"Seagate Technology has released yet another version of its 10,000 RPM, SAS, 2.5" Enterprise Performance HDD, this being its ninth. Much like the previous versions, the latest is geared more for write-intensive applications.

One major change is that the drive now has upward capacity of 2.4TB (the previous generation topped out at 1.8TB). While this isn't nearly as high as one would see in a 3.5" drive, it is still a lot of capacity that can be put into a small footprint. Seagate offers a FIPS 140-2 model and a SED model in the smaller capacities..."
