HDD vs SSD Storage

How do solid-state drives (SSDs) stack up to traditional hard-disk drives? Like many things in life, it depends on money and what you need. SSDs deliver greater performance than HDDs, especially faster, more predictable read times. SSD performance will only increase as vendors deploy non-volatile memory express (NVMe), a protocol designed to unleash their full […]

SSD Array vs HDD Array

With the emergence of SSD arrays, businesses are starting to question the more traditional HDD arrays that have been standard storage solutions for decades. And with the ever-growing presence of critical data across countless industries, it’s no wonder that the more sluggish spinning drive arrays are being put into question. But is the concern warranted? […]

JetStor: Using SSD Caching to Improve System Performance

As the capacity of HDDs (Hard Disk Drives) continues to expand, the response speed of this traditional storage technology hasn’t kept up with the times.  In recent years, random input/output (I/O) technology has only experienced marginal advancement in the HDD realm, causing this old school storage solution to really weigh down computing systems when data needs to […]

Solid State Drive vs Hard Drive

A solid state drive, or SSD, is a data storage device that can have a huge impact on your system’s performance—even more than getting a new computer that runs on a hard drive. Unlike a hard drive, SSDs have no moving parts. SSDs are designed for storage and have quite a few benefits compared to […]

Solid State Storage Array Solutions

Last month, we introduced solid state storage arrays, which use flash memory drives in traditional hard-drive form factors, and this month, we will explore some of their applications. Solid state storage arrays are the next-generation solution for the rapid storage and delivery of data and applications. They provide random access times magnitudes faster than hard […]

Solid State Drive Storage

Many innovations are improving the performance and efficiencies of network storage, such as data tiering and deduplication, but none are as far-reaching as the emergence of solid state storage drives (SSDs). solid state storage drives (SSDs) deliver a leap forward as pronounced as the superiority of DVD/CD technology over video and audio cassettes. Until relatively […]
