Not All 3D is Created Equal

If you follow these things, then you know that 3D NAND has the industry buzzing. Of course it does, because it’s our future. It puts flash memory on an aggressive scaling curve, meaning we’ll achieve capacity points and cost per gigabyte reductions that enable new applications. 3D NAND also promises to “set the clock back” in terms of performance and reliability...

SilverDraft and Micron Make Movie Magic

Not that long ago, when I heard the term, supercomputer, I immediately formed a mental image: row after row of rack after rack of massive, hulking, loud machines crunching data that came from sources I dared not think about. “Super” for me was synonymous with “huge” and “unwieldy.”

A Little Historical Perspective on Virtualization

We often hear about old trends making a comeback—like stretch pants from the 80s or your favorite “oldies” tune remixed into a new “pop” song. Sometimes the new version is better—and sometimes, we wish it had never reemerged. I’ve seen a few welcome comebacks in the technology industry lately...

Experiences in the Home Lab With Micron P420m PCIe SSD, Part 1

I’m an engineer at heart and believe strongly that, in this industry, we must keep our technical skills sharp by doing hands-on work. Those of you that know me well know that I’ve had a home lab since 1982—and for those of you that don’t, yes that date is accurate! I’ve had a home lab for 33 years now...

To Boldly Go Where Every HDD has Gone Before

In my last few posts, I’ve referenced one of my favorite franchises, Star Trek, and it would be wrong to divert from that path. If we equate the data center to the Borg and look at the troubles with Tribbles as trying to control data center growth, it follows that the “continuing mission” of solid state drives (SSDs) is to ultimately replace traditional data storage solutions.

Mode 2 Infrastructure and Flash – a SOLID Approach

Recently, I was invited to speak at the Gartner Symposium in Orlando, Florida. The presentation I chose to deliver was on the importance of flash in mode 2 data center designs. What’s “mode 2”, you say? In a nutshell, it’s a Gartner classification of approaches to data center infrastructures.
