The Flash-Transformed Data Center
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
We are entering the era of the" Flash-Transformed Data Center" when every tier of the data center is seeing rapid adoption of flash technology. Flash is showing up in many ways and the benefits of flash adoption are clear. Read this whitepaper to learn more.
The SanDisk Solution for Scaling Hadoop
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
SanDisk has run Terasort benchmark tests on Hadoop servers, to see how SSDs can accelerate Hadoop, as it is running in real-time on servers. All of the Hadoop processes, including loading the data, sorting the data, and completing the computation, benefits from the use of flash SSDs.
The SanDisk Solution for Scaling Cassandra
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
This benchmark demonstrates how the SanDisk Solution provides superior performance per server and the most cost-effective data center deployment alternative for a Cassandra database relative to servers with HDDs, replacing HDDs with SSD storage or using large DRAM in servers.
The SanDisk Solution for Scaling MongoDB
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
This benchmark demonstrates how the SanDisk Solution provides accelerated performance of servers running MongoDB. Customers who acquire flash-enabled servers will see performance benefits, with dramatically reduced latency for I/O – improving the time-to-results and speeding time-to-decision.
Enterprise Endurance and Reliability with MLC Flash
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
When storage performance is critical, Solid State Drives (SSDs) are often the tool of choice. With their ability to exceed performance and total cost of ownership metrics of Hard Disk Drive (HDD) solutions for write-intensive enterprise applications, SSDs are often used for their high performance.
Putting Flash on the Memory Bus
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
This paper explores the first enterprise SSD that utilizes the memory bus to connect flash directly to the CPU, bypassing latency gates. This technology helps enterprises overcome the challenges of data-hungry applications such as high-frequency trading, Big Data, VDI and in-memory compute.
The Why and How of SSD Overprovisioning
Information Resources  
7/18/2014  
Read/Modify/Write cycles are extremely costly from a performance and endurance standpoint. To minimize them, SSDs keep a fixed amount of physical flash memory in reserve, called the Over Provisioning (OP) space that is not part of the device’s logical address space.
How Hyperscale Data Centers Can Benefit from SSDs
Information Resources  
7/17/2014  
Many traditional enterprises are moving to hyperscale architecture due to its scalabilty. The main obstacle to implement hyperscale architectures has been storage technology limitations. Today's SSDs are an ideal solution that many organizations are implementing in their hyperscale infrastructure.
How to Choose the Right SSD
Information Resources  
7/17/2014  
SSDs boast the combination of increased I/O (input/output) throughput and greater power density (IOPS/Watt), which can accelerate applications and enable data center footprint reductions; a compelling argument for evaluating SSD drives.
Top Applications for SSDs in Financial Services
Information Resources  
7/17/2014  
Big data...The market is exploding with massive quantities of structured and unstructured data, which must be collected, sorted and stored safely. This brief shows real world examples of how SSD technology solves key customer challenges across the financial services industry.
Top Applications for SSDs in Cloud/Hyperscale Environments
Information Resources

Big data...The market is exploding with massive quantities of structured and unstructured data, which must be collected, sorted and stored safely. This brief shows real world examples of how SSD technology solves key customer challenges across cloud and hyperscale data center environments.
Storage solutions for data center virtualization
Information Resources  
7/17/2014  
For enterprises today, the promise of virtualization is what enables their business to reach its full potential - but only if it isn’t hampered by a storage solution that can’t keep up. With SanDisk SSDs, the users and applications your enterprise relies on can access the critical data needed—fast.
Storage in the era of cloud and big data: SSDs vs. HDDs
Information Resources  
7/17/2014  
This white paper explores the causes of the shift and the implications for the legacy technology—the traditional hard disk drive (HDD)—and presents the case for a new technology: the solid state drive (SSD).

Given where it's starting out, the market for liquid cooling technology in the datacenter isn't quite as hot as it might seem.
Low cost isn't necessarily the driving force in datacenter decisions, at least in comparison with reliability, security, and business flexibility, according to InformationWeek's 2014 State of the Data Center survey.
Network Computing blogger Howard Marks takes a close look at how SSD vendors are positioning themselves for the enterprise market.
With Flash on the upswing in the datacenter, RRAM might be next in line.
Picture the world's biggest datacenter today and almost triple it, and that's where datacenters are heading, Network Computing reports.
