Solid State: Caveat Emptor. Yet Also Storage's Saving Grace
sponsored by Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.
As you surely know, there is tremendous user value to be gained from solid-state storage.
But despite all the benefits, there are also some “dirty little secrets” in the world of solid-state that any organization should be aware of before deploying an SS solution.
This white paper gets above the fray and the noise of solid state technology, and delves into the aspects of solid state that vendors would rather not talk about, including:
- All solid-state is not “roughly the same”
- Performance is neither guaranteed nor necessarily consistent
- Writing often slows things down and/or is a "pass-through” operation, adding latency that impacts application performance
- And more
