It’s the Gestalt IT Rundown, running down the IT news of the week with Tom Hollingsworth and Rich Stroffolino. Is a new Spectre upon us? Will QLC flash eat spinning disks? Is Sharepoint the tip of the AR spear? How can Dell EMC clean up their storage portfolio? Watch to find out.
In this iteration of Gestalt Storage News:
– ioFABRIC Vicinity 3.0 moves into the world of storage myth making
– WekaIO gets into the high-performance distributed storage game
– And we talk about the new world of NVMe on the On-Premise IT Roundtable
Plus discussions about the death of the dedicated storage admin!
In storage, there is an inexorable march toward greater capacity. In general this means denser storage. Spinning disks have come up with a variety of ways to skirt the laws of physics to put more bits in a single drive enclosure. Platters were added, drive heads were made more precise, and some companies have tried write schemes like Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR).
Flash storage has gone through similar iterations to increase density. Chris Evans outlines the challenges and opportunities afforded by quadruple-level cell flash storage.
