What To Look For When Selecting All-Flash Storage Solutions

While technology constantly evolves, all areas of technology don’t move forward at the same pace. Over the past three decades, we witnessed almost unbelievable increases in CPU performance and memory densities. Storage has been a different case, however. Although the storage industry has been able to deliver huge increases in disk drive capacity, it has not been able to provide an equivalent increase in disk drive performance.

Flash storage technology (based on non-volatile NAND chips) has been around for almost three decades and is now rapidly beginning to fill this storage performance gap, as the cost of the technology becomes more affordable. According to a prediction by IDC, from 2012 to the end of 2016, all-flash arrays (AFA) will see a compound annual growth rate of 58.5%. While this number applies to commercial enterprise spending, there’s no reason that federal agencies should be left behind.

2016 Trends: Data Mobility and The Internet of Things

By Mike Tanner on Dec 8, 2015 9:54:32 AM

In 2015, we saw some spectacular advances and use case adoptions for new data and data management technologies in both private and public sectors, from storage virtualization and software-defined data centers to analytics and BI methodologies.

In 2016, there are a number of data technology trends that I believe will really begin to take hold.  Here are my top seven trends where I believe we will see some traction in the new year.
