Join the Webinar: Figuring TCO for Flash in the Data Center

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.

Improve Apache Kafka performance with flash storage.

My official role at Micron is Principal Storage Solutions Engineer. What that title really means is that I work to determine how flash storage can improve the performance and results of workload applications in the real world. To that end, I decided to evaluate one of the most used distributed messaging systems in the Big Data ecosystem, Apache Kafka. I wanted to see how Micron SSDs could be best applied to Apache Kafka and what sort of gains might be had by doing so. If you aren’t familiar with Apache Kafka, you might want to check out this, http://kafka.apache.org/, for a quick primer.

Change in IT can be tough, but is often worth it

Change in IT can be tough, with some of us staying with what we know or being a touch reluctant to move to newer – even if we think newer is better. Some of that is nature, but some of it is because making a radical change may come with risks, risks that we aren’t looking to take, at least without a strong notion of the benefits.

Three things to consider when it comes to machine learning.

Machine learning. From a concept Gartner considered a “buzzword” in its 2016 hype cycle report, it’s now progressed to something that nearly all of us in IT are either pondering, exploring or executing. There’s no question that data-based analysis and predictions, where machines learn from informational assets and then inform and influence actions, both business and otherwise, are among the newest and hottest technology groundswells today. But the balancing act of the aspirational and practical is still precarious for those moving to the ML world; as with every new and evolving undertaking, infrastructure can make or break the deal.
