Violin Memory: Laying the Foundation for the All-Silicon Datacenter
Traditional storage architectures are now widely being overtaken by flash technology. However, these flash-optimized architectures are lacking the enterprise-class reliability, availability, scalability, and management functionality necessary to host mixed datacenter workloads.
Luckily, flash array vendors understand this and are working to provide that functionality in their flash-optimized storage architectures.
Access this IDC Vendor Profile, which discusses the emergence of a datacenter, flash-optimized storage architecture that will likely replace traditional storage architectures as the enterprise storage workhorse of the future, making the all-silicon datacenter (for primary storage) a very viable proposition.
