TechTarget, Get to Know Edge Storage and the Technology Around It, April 30, 2020

Edge computing is no longer theoretical. It’s making its way into the enterprise, with products and services that move compute and storage closer to where data is generated and used. IDC recently underscored this trend with a prediction that more than half of new enterprise IT infrastructure deployed will happen at the edge within three years. That’s up from 10% today. So, what does this mean for edge storage and storage infrastructure in general?

Blocks and Files, Will NVMe Become the Universal Block Storage Access Protocol?, May 27, 2020

Facebook’s virtual OCP summit earlier this month hosted two provocative presentations that suggested NVMe could become a universal block access protocol. How realistic is this prospect?

TechTarget, NVMe-oF Storage Technology and Terms Explained, May 28, 2020

Storage has picked up a lot of speed in the last five years with the adoption of NVMe and persistent memory. Those changes have storage network technology scrambling to avoid becoming the bottleneck in a storage system.

EE Times, NVMe Drives Ready to Embrace Own Form Factors, June 1, 2020

Just as NVMe freed SSDs from relying on legacy technologies designed for spinning disks, the Enterprise & Data Center SSD Form Factor (EDSFF) family has been purpose-built for NVMe-based drives, whether they contain flash or another storage class memory (SCM) such as Intel Optane.

TechTarget, NVMe Zoned Namespace Lowers Costs and Improves Performance, July 27, 2020

The NVM Express consortium recently ratified the NVMe Zoned Namespace Command Set specification. It defines an interface for enabling host software to communicate with non-volatile NAND flash storage.

Storage Review, What is NVMe-oF?, July 27, 2020

In recent years, we continue to experience how storage performance is getting faster, which has been challenging the old storage protocols that have become a bottleneck for data centers. In this article, we take a quick look into Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe). Further, we overview NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) and NVMe over RDMA over Converged Ethernet (NVMe over RoCE), a new protocol specification developed to solve bottlenecks of modern storage networks.

Help Net Security, Things to Consider When Selecting Enterprise SSDs for Critical Workloads, July 30, 2020

The process of evaluating solid state drives (SSDs) for enterprise applications can present a number of challenges. You want maximum performance for the most demanding servers running mission-critical workloads.
