  • SSD: Features, Functions and FAQ

    There is a plethora of solid state disk storage products on the market today, from server-side PCIe SSDs to all-flash arrays to SSD caching appliances.

    But there are pros and cons of each different type, and each offers unique benefits and drawbacks. Before you deploy solid-state storage, you need to make sure you do your homework and choose the type that best serves your organization.

    This expert E-Guide explores key considerations for integrating solid state storage into a server, and answers frequently asked questions about solid state, including:

    • What are the advantages of putting an SSS device directly into a single server rather than sharing it?
    • When you use a solid-state storage device in a server, is it better to use SLC or MLC?
    • Given the high price of flash, how can vendors offer all-SSD arrays at an affordable price?
    • How big of a difference is there between hybrid SSD arrays and all-SSD arrays?
    • And more

  • Pros and Cons of PCI Express SSD

    Traditionally, solid state storage technologies have been deployed as an add-on to existing disk-based arrays. Today, however, emerging PCI Express Card technologies offer an attractive alternative designed to help you get the most out of your SSD investment.


    Check out this expert E-Guide today to explore the potential benefits and challenges associated with PCI Express (PCIe) technology, and receive best practices to help you determine which of these solutions will best meet your storage needs. Also discover how heavily speed should influence your SSD purchasing decision; read on to get started!
