Breaking the Bottleneck – Solving the Storage Challenges of Next Generation Data Centers
Breaking the data center down to its three most elementary components gives us: Compute Power, the Network, and Storage. This paper takes a holistic view of the data center, discusses each of these components individually, and explains how the crucial element of Storage has lagged behind advancements in Compute Power and the Network. It will also examine how an ongoing shift towards clustered storage architectures may help to drive storage forward and, perhaps, even enable it to leap-frog the other data center components in speed and performance.
