It is somewhat difficult to relate how changes in memory technology might impact you in everyday life. In this blog post I want to take the opportunity to shed some light on how the most recent advancements in NAND technology from Micron help satisfy the human element of ever-increasing storage needs. Micron’s recent announcement of the industry first 64 layer 3D NAND enterprise SSD could lead you to wonder ‘why is 64 layer 3D NAND such a big deal?’
Some may be surprised to see Micron making the list for the sixth straight year. Many consider memory and storage to be static, and certainly not innovative. But the number of worldwide memory and storage players has narrowed to a relative few, and a key characteristic of the surviving companies is innovation.
5G is NOW! demanding more and faster Micron memory solutions to deliver the best seat at the winter games.
Micron has actively worked on solutions to meet automotive system security requirements for over 25 years.
The Micron 5200 SSD is built on the same proven architecture as the Micron 5100 SSD, but with industry-leading 64-layer 3D NAND to deliver best-in-class performance, value, and consistency.
Red Hat set me up with the beta version of Red Hat Ceph Storage 3.0, so I ran a performance test using our new high-performance NVMe drive, the Micron 9200 MAX (6.4TB).
What IT trends might continue in 2018, and what surprising things might this New Year bring? James Meeker, director of Micron's Enterprise Solutions, offers his top three trends and predictions for storage in 2018.
The latest version of Ceph recently hit GA status with a ton of new features. Ceph 12.2, Luminous, is the long term stable release of Ceph and adds full GA support of BlueStore, checksum for data, improved tuning, and a lot more.
Here's a puzzler. While storage architects and data center managers are focused on the many benefits of enterprise flash and solid state drives (SSDs), legacy hard disk drives (HDDs) are still much more prevalent. Why? A Forrester survey of U.S. storage managers in January 2017 indicated acquisition cost is still a barrier in moving from HDD to SSD. Yet prices have reached a tipping point and purchase price is only half the picture.
Good news! It’s about to get easier to maximize data center efficiency for much better total cost of ownership (TCO). The evolution of solid-state storage technologies has taken a sharp up-turn in enabling capacity, speed and simplicity. Especially for organizations with high-capacity and high-performance data requirements, flash storage innovations like 3D NAND and NVM Express™ point the way to next-generation IT.
