Advent & Rise of Flash Storage in Enterprise Computing

Rise of Flash StorageThe advent of multi-core processors has also provided a big boost to deeper penetration of server virtualization in the data center. For example, a 4-core processor based server can now host four virtual machines on the same physical server – one on each core – thus consolidating four workloads that were running on four different physical servers onto one physical server.

The key implication of this development is that each physical server is clearly processing more data and generating orders of magnitude higher network traffic than in the past. Diskbased storage with sequential read-write is inadequate to extract data out of these servers fast enough creating a data supply problem on the server. NAND Flash-based Storage, which allows random read-write and hence offers an order of magnitude improvement in Storage performance in terms of IOPS (more…)
