19 Apr 2017 The easy and fast way to securely remove all data from your SSD. [62659]
Micron , April 19th 2017

Jon Tanguy blogs, "A couple years ago, we achieved a third-party validation for the sanitize process on our M600 Client SATA SSD. Now, we have repeated this validation with our latest Client SATA SSD, the 1100, our most advanced 3D NAND-based client SSD. We contracted with the experts at KrollOntrack to validate that when you use the Sanitize Drive function in our Storage Executive software, you will successfully eliminate all of the user and system data on your SSD.

This may seem like a bit of trivia, but for applications where the stored data carries significant value and must be protected because the data is proprietary, private, or is literally Top Secret, this sanitization process can be critically important. And, unfortunately, the process of sanitizing SSDs carries some historical baggage, which is worth re-visiting..."

28 Mar 2017 Is It Time To Reboot Primary Storage? [61961]
Storage-Switzerland, March 28th, 2017

"Primary storage has remained the same for quite some time. It comes in two primary forms: block or file, also known as SAN or NAS. Yes, each of these two forms can be filled with a mix of ingredients, including SATA drives, SAS drives, and flash drives. You have all-flash SAN/NAS, hybrid SAN/NAS, and SATA SAN/NAS devices. But in the end, it basically comes down to the same two choices we had 20 years ago, 'Do you want block or file?'

In contrast, other storage markets have been heating up for a while. We have multiple new ways to store, protect, and share data that are offering customers many ways to save money while keeping their data safe at the same time. Why doesn't primary storage incorporate these features? Is it time for a reboot?..."

14 Feb 2017 Supermicro Launches BigTwin -- The Industry's Highest Performing Twin Multi-node System Supporting The Full Range of CPUs, Maximum Memory and All-Flash NVMe [60718]
First and Only 2U Multi-Node Systems supporting 205 watt dual-Xeon Processors, 24 DIMMs per node, and 24 All-Flash NVMe

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in compute, storage and networking technologies including green computing, has announced the fifth generation of its Twin family, the new BigTwin server architecture.

The Supermicro BigTwin is a breakthrough multi-node server system with a multitude of innovations and industry firsts. BigTwin supports maximum system performance and efficiency by delivering 30% better thermal capacity in a compact 2U form-factor enabling solutions with the highest performance processor, memory, storage and I/O.

Continuing Supermicro's NVMe leadership the BigTwin is the first All-Flash NVMe multi-node system. BigTwin doubles the I/O capacity with three PCI-e 3.0 x16 I/O options and provides added flexibility with more than 10 networking options including 1GbE, 10G, 25G, 100G, and InfiniBand with its industry leading SIOM modular interconnect.

Each node can support current and next generation dual Intel Xeon processors with up to 3TB of memory, 24 drives of All-Flash NVMe, Hybrid NVMe/SATA/SAS, SSD and HDD, and two m.2 NVMe/SATA drives per node. Extending the industry's largest portfolio of server and storage systems, the BigTwin is ideal for customers looking to create a simple to deploy and manage blazing fast high-density compute infrastructure. This new system is targeted for cloud, big data, enterprise, hyper-converged and IoT workloads that demand maximum performance, efficiency and flexibility.

08 Jan 2017 NVMe and NVMs: What To Expect [59356]
Network Computing, December 28th, 2016

Umesh Maheshwari writes in Network Computing, "NVMe is a relatively new protocol for accessing data stored on solid-state drives. Unlike spinning disks, SSDs store data on some form of non-volatile memory (NVM). This NVM can be either flash (NAND) or a next-generation NVM such as 3D XPoint (3DXP). Note that NVMe, the protocol, is different from NVM, the storage medium.

NVMe (the "e" stands for express) is designed to be leaner and faster than its predecessors, SAS and SATA. It shaves off about 20us from the latency added by the I/O stack..."
