Current metrics used to compare the performance of storage systems are inadequate. The industry needs a new storage performance metric that is fair, broadly applicable and intuitive. In this article, Dr. Menon introduces the performance efficiency percentage (PEP). It overcomes current limitations and is applicable to both scale-up and scale-out...
Fungible Inc, a US composable systems startup, wants to front-end every system resource with its DPU microprocessors, offloading security and storage functions from server CPUs.
A new type of storage system is emerging that's being targeted at cloud data centers. They are being designed to scale out, support NVMeoF protocols with remote storage as fast as local storage, provide high-performance networked erasure coding, and support volumes with flexible durability.
Today’s CPUs are 30 times slower than I/O. The core problem is that servers are compute-centric while applications are becoming data-centric. Ready to liberate your data center with an architecture designed for data-centric workloads?
