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.

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.
