How to build fast and powerful MongoDB in smaller, space efficient clusters.

I went out to dinner w/some friends last month. We went to the best pizza restaurant in town. The place is huge and bustling every night (Fridays are the busiest!). Awesome. What does a very small pizza have to do with storage? I’m glad you asked.

Micron Senior Fellow Enriches Technology and Talent

Our customers crave memory and storage solutions with ever increasing performance and reliability that keep power consumption and cost in check. To meet these requirements, Micron needs technical expertise and innovation of the highest caliber. These are the kind of traits embodied by Mark Helm, the fourth and newest senior fellow in Micron’s Technical Leadership Program (TLP).

The Top Myths of Server SANs Debunked

We continue to see more and more companies moving away from traditional SANs to more scalable storage architectures that help them drive down costs. As a result of this transition, NVMe SSD adoption is growing faster than any other storage technology due to the high performance and capacity available even in a single SSD (learn more about the business case for NVMe SSDs here). Additionally, the term “Server SAN” is coming to describe the combination of software defined storage (SDS) and NVMe (server local or NVMe over Fabric deployments).

NVMe is changing the storage status quo.

It’s always interesting in our crazy world of dynamic technology advances to see which latest innovation gets lots of hype, which actually transforms from a concept into a reality, and then which one emerges as a game changer impacting real computing and business needs. We’d all be rich if these were easy or obvious calls to make.

Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct is an IO Performance Beast.

In preparation for this year’s Microsoft Ignite show (Micron is a sponsor of the event), my team has been running tests using the early builds of Microsoft’s Fall Update 2017 of Server Core. In particular, we are very interested in the performance of the Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) functionality and how well it performs with solid-state media such as our Micron 5100 SATA SSDs. Based on our experience so far – we will re-evaluate once S2D is released later this year – S2D is a real IO performance beast. We released a technical brief that documents our initial results and they were truly unexpected based on our experience with various other hyper-converged software defined storage solutions we have tested.

The differences between client and server SSDs can be vital to your data center.

In my role at Micron, I talk to a lot of Operations and Client/Server Admins who are stumped on why there are so many similar SSDs on the market from Micron and other vendors. It’s a good question – when you see two seemingly-identical SSDs on your favorite shopping website, but notice the server/enterprise version costs way more than the one that is designed for client devices like laptops, it can be confusing.

A History of Innovation and Leadership

My name is Dean Klein and I’m a digital dinosaur! I realized this the other day when I turned in some of my old computer gear to be recycled and it was older than the young man who was checking it in! Anyway, I’ve seen a lot in my 40+ years as an electrical engineer in what has to have been the most fast-paced period of engineering advancement the world has ever seen. This is a period that named “Moore’s Law” and then ran it into obsolescence. It’s a period of unprecedented advancements that has set a pace for product development that is showing no signs of slowing, where most all of these products are dependent, one way or another, on the stuff we make at Micron: Memory. Sometimes you might wonder if the past is any predictor of the future. Absolutely! But pondering that question led some of us down a path of looking back to reflect on the history of innovation we’ve left in our wake as we set new courses for the future.

What do fast cars and fast storage have in common?

When I was younger, I had friends with fast cars. Kids with fast cars like to see just how fast they are. Now that I have a few (well…many) more years of wisdom, I still appreciate fast – but differently.

Micron Again Recognized In Clarivate Analytics’ Top 100 Global Innovators List

We don’t do what we do for the accolades, but it’s always rewarding to have our hard work recognized. Last month, Micron Technology was named to Clarivate Analytics’ list of top 100 Global Innovators for the fifth straight year. In the words of Clarivate Executive Vice President David Brown, Micron received the award “in recognition of (our) outstanding commitment to innovation, the protection of ideas and the commercialization of inventions.”

SSD data centers are inevitable, smart and affordable. But don’t just take our word for it.

It’s interesting to watch the velocity at which technology progresses, in many cases at an exponential rate that is both thrilling and mind boggling. How does one disseminate the vast amount of new technology information and decide what is crucial for the success and growth of their business? For years, the experts at Gartner have helped organizations and business leaders to do this very thing - evaluate the latest IT trends, and understand how they affect an organization, and one’s individual professional growth.
