Looking at the latest announcements and the history of the behemoth of public cloud services, probably yes. And a leading one.
In a previous post, I talked about the evolution of the Flash memory market, and how some software solutions are starting to change the way we consume storage. Whenever a new hardware technology comes into market, the previous ones becomes of general use (think SSDs), but the software has always the advantage to leverage any improvement in the underlying hardware, and often re-invent itself. Lately, the common idea in at least two solutions I’ve seen, is the new storage tier they are offering use to use: your servers’ memory.
If you are designing a new project with PernixData, you can have a cluster where not all ESXi servers have a Flash memory (a PCIe card or an SSD); however, there are some design considerations you need to keep in mind, both during the installation part or while using this software.
In a previous article, I wrote about the server-side caching solution Sandisk FlashSoft 3.1 for vSphere, its features and how to install and configure it in a vSphere environment. In this article I will show the results of some performance tests I did.
Ho scoperto per la prima volta FlashSoft in occasione di Storage Field Day 3 a Denver: FlashSoft era stata acquisita da SanDisk nel Febbraio 2012, ed è stata sinceramente una sopresa scoprire che il colosso delle memorie Flash possedeva una divisione Enterprise, fatta di soluzioni come appunto FlashSoft e altre. Penso che come me, molti di voi hanno sempre abbinato il nome SanDisk alle memorie per dispositivi o alle chiavette USB…
Ho finalmente potuto dedicare un pò di tempo a studiare questa soluzione. Questo primo articolo è una descrizione del prodotto e delle sue caratteristiche.
This is a story of a disadventure I had that made me cold sweat for several days, but finally ended well… Usually, I shut down my MacBook only when I need to install or update a software that specifically requires a reboot. Standby mode never gave me any problem, and allows me to start using […]
Recently I changed the hard disk of my MacBook Pro 13″ with an SSD disk. Previous disk, coming with the Mac, was a Seagate Momentus 5400.6 da 250 Gb. Having my disk fully loaded with data, I looked around for a SSD disk with the same capacity, and I finally bought a SSD Crucial M4 […]
