The Past, Present, and Future of RAID Data Protection

Seemingly everyone working in IT knows the power of RAID, and setting various RAID levels continues to be a solid foundation of a data protection strategy.

But RAID efficiency is being put to the test by rapidly expanding data stores, and the storage industry is racing to meet new demands by exploiting technologies such as wide striping, erasure codes and multi-copy mirroring. Erasure code technology, for example, is gaining traction in a slew of enterprise offerings. It’s being presented to end users as a way to improve upon RAID systems that require an increasing number of disk drives to run and, in turn, allows for the possibility of problematic rebuild times.

In this handbook on the past, present and future of RAID data protection, learn which RAID data protection options are viable today, which ones make sense for your shop, and how RAID can be replaced and improved upon.

  • Get More From Memory Channel Flash

    Memory channel storage is a relatively new technology that allows storage professionals to overcome some of the most limiting storage bottlenecks. Although flash storage is often heralded as providing far greater performance than traditional hard disks, even flash has its limits. Flash storage performance is often limited by the storage controller or by the throughput of a storage network. Storage vendors are working to overcome these bottlenecks by putting storage closer to compute resources. PCIe-based flash is an example of a previous attempt. More recently, however, manufacturers have begun offering memory channel storage which allows flash memory to be installed on the CPU memory bus, thereby bypassing the storage controller, the PCIe bus, and eliminating the need for bus specific storage protocols. This drill down explains how memory channel storage works, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of using it.

  • Flash Storage For Dummies, NetApp Special Edition

    Flash Storage for Dummies, NetApp 2nd Special Edition, describes the many uses and benefits of flash storage technology in the enterprise. From flash-accelerated storage to all-flash arrays, flash technology improves performance and increases reliability in storage infrastructures.
    The book examines various elements of flash storage: how it evolved, and why you should consider it for your storage infrastructure. The book explores key differences in NetApp’s flash storage solutions: NetApp Flash Cache, Flash Pool, all-flash FAS, and the EF-Series.
    You’ll also learn five strategies for using Flash in your next storage project. In that classic For Dummies style, you’ll get some useful tips on how to best incorporate flash in your IT environment.
