It’s Time to Embrace the Bottlenecks in Storage

Storage administration has always been about fighting bottlenecks, but today’s architecture means it’s time to embrace them instead. In this episode, our panel discusses the premise that it’s most important to match bottlenecks to the position in the infrastructure stack and application. One reason for this is the amazing bandwidth and low latency we have, thanks to Optane PMEM, NVMe, flash, and other technologies, but another is the emergence of new technologies that enable disaggregated architecture, moving storage closer to the application.
