Flash Data Storage Vendor Trends

Although it is almost impossible to keep up with the pace of ongoing product releases, here are three recent highlights in the flash data storage space.

In the enterprise, flash technology is changing fundamentals in computing and storage systems and flash memory in the enterprise is believed to reduce energy consumption of storage systems.

Unlike a physical hard disk drive (HDD), flash storage does not require as much space and SSDs built with NAND technology provide a high level of performance in enterprise storage systems.

There is no stopping the trend toward flash in data storage these days. Although it is almost impossible to keep up with the pace of ongoing product releases, here are some of the recent highlights in the flash data storage space, courtesy of Enterprise Storage Forum.

Fusion-io

Fusion-io offers a variety of flash products, including direct, in server acceleration as a high capacity, persistent memory platform to virtualization caching using ioTurbine.

Violin Memory

Violin has released its 6264 all memory array. Delivering 64 TB in a 3U form, the 6264 has the same footprint as previous models but it’s able to hit 750K IOPs. It is said to double the density and performance, and triple the economics of previous models.

PernixData

PernixData FVP is said to virtualize server side flash to enable scale-out storage performance that is independent of capacity. This is a 100% software solution, which the company claims delivers 10x more application performance while enabling IOPS to grow with demand.
