Deliver compute and storage resources through a common virtualized platform — getting accelerated and predictable performance — with our hyperconverged, all-flash VMware vSAN 6.2 Ready Nodes. Their scale-out architecture lets you optimize the data I/O path while minimizing CPU impact.
This technical marketing brief shows how virtualizing Hadoop® (versus using a more conventional bare metal Hadoop deployment) improved the completion time for an aggregated set of standard benchmark tests by 26%. To help ensure that performance was not limited by storage, we equipped both the virtualized and bare metal deployments that we tested with Micron® M510DC SSDs.
We are striving to make “SSD Management Made Easy” more than just a catch phrase. It is driving our efforts to bring the very latest and best technology to market, along with the features and tools that IT managers and end users need to support their Micron SSDs during deployment and throughout the years of useful life which follow.
Micron is at Dell FRS this week in Las Vegas showcasing our qualified storage portfolio for Dell systems. Our video crew was in the area so they popped in to capture a quick video. Take a look and let us know if you have any questions about Micron storage for Dell systems.
First off, are you wondering, “What the heck is a “SpiceHead?” Well, to the relief of most IT professionals as well as my own, I can reassure you it has nothing to do with the Spice Girls—or with cumin, pepper, sage, or rosemary!
If you’re a Star Trek fan like me, you might think this blog title refers to the demise of the starship Enterprise whose five-year mission was to explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations. Happily for you it doesn’t! Instead, I’m referring to the tectonic shift that’s happening in the enterprise drive market.
We’re excited to announce that Micron and IBM have formed a strategic collaboration that leverages and extends each company’s depth and breadth of flash storage capabilities.
It’s been an exciting few months since my last post. There’s good reason for the recent wave of excitement around Micron, and it goes beyond the traditional, vendor-to-OEM nature of selling our flash technology. It’s really about how we’re taking Micron Flash to the market.
Over the last 12 months, the industry associated with all things “Cloud” has seen some significant changes. As I sit back to reflect on 2014, I can’t help but recall some interesting highlights and even lowlights of the year. With my focus being on solid state storage, I get the unique perspective of seeing some of the effects up close and personal.
Storage systems based on hard disk drives (HDDs) became available in 1956, and storage software developers have spent the nearly 60 years since working around their physical limitations. But Flash-based storage changes everything—starting with the current generation of solid state drives (SSDs).
