In the age of big data and a need for scalable solutions, these innovations in storage create an opportunity to not only improve and enhance data processing speed and memory solutions- but to decrease costs as well.
- MIT has developed a storage network architecture utilizing SSDs instead of traditional RAM as the memory storage for large computational sets of data. This allows for organizations to store their entire sets of data in memory without having to spend an inordinate amount of money and with little to no performance loss.
- Intel and Micron reveal 3D XPoint, a new memory technology that promises to be 1000 (yes, 1000) times faster than traditional RAM. This marks the first real breakthrough in memory since NAND flash was introduced in 1989, and will facilitate the massive data processing required to support applications such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
- Samsung’s new 256Gb 3D V-NAND flash technology marks a turning point in data storage. Traditional HDDs have always held the title of “largest storage drive,” currently maxing out around 10TB, but Samsung has just beaten that with a 16TB SSD based on its new V-NAND flash. With 6.4 TB drives already available and larger ones on the way, magnetic HDDs may finally have lost their place in the enterprise data storage world.
