The new Western Digital NVMe client architecture and product portfolio enables manufacturers of IoT devices, computing devices, embedded PCs and servers to capture and transform massive quantities of data in real-time.
The Intel SSD DC P4800X is best for those who need fast caching and fast storage to increase scale per server and reduce transaction costs for latency sensitive workloads.
The 883 DCT is geared to meet the demands of server storage systems, with added reliability, end-to-end data protection, and the ability to handle massive amounts of data.
Micron designed these SATA SSDs for virtualized workloads and cloud architectures. For a SATA drive it packs a decent throughput punch, and delivers latency as low as 55 microseconds.
The Samsung 970 Pro outperforms at both queue depth and peak performance in sequential read tests. Its combo of NVMe and PCie in the compact M.2 form factor makes it a good candidate for anyone wanting high performance.
Toshiba XD5 Series Data Center NVMe SSD is a PCIe Gen 3, NVMe 1.3a specification, high-performance SSD, 1.92 TB and 3.84 TB capacities, built on BiCS FLASH TLC, available in sub-1 drive write per day.
Qumulo's QF2 is a scale-out file storage system that can run on premises or in the cloud. When QF2 runs on the company's P-Series all-flash storage hardware, it creates a high-performance NAS device suitable for multiple uses.
The Pure Storage NAS solution offers plenty of raw power and is a good option for those looking to add a higher performance storage tier. A good performer on block and object, this product is probably best for midrange workloads.
QNAP is optimized for mission-critical virtualized workloads, particularly virtual desktop infrastructure, and it offers features like nearly limitless snapshots, block-level data deduplication, thin provisioning with reclaim and simplified management.
The ReadyNAS 2312 offers decent price performance for SMBs and remote office deployments, and high-performance with a quad gigabit Ethernet interface, plus five levels of data protection and automated backup and disaster recovery.
StoreEasy 1660 offers 60% more internal capacity than its previous best-selling NAS. The 1000 series of products also boasts up to twice the performance and 50 percent lower latency than previous generation hardware.
Dell EMC Isilon F800 All-Flash scale-out NAS storage combines performance and scalability. Available in several configurations, the Isilon F800 delivers up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/s bandwidth per chassis.
NVMe SSDs display throughputs at the rate of 32 GBps (gigabytes per second). Half a million IOPs are common and higher-end drives range up to 10 million IOPs. Despite these high speeds, latency rates generally stay below 20 microseconds and some at half that number.
The NVMe protocol connects SSDs to servers via the PCIe bus and offers much faster performance. NVMe technology has become a key player in today's storage infrastructure.
So what security features should we be asking and planning for to protect data that will become information that can be used for and against everyone, both today and in the future?
These top enterprise all-flash array companies offer high performance products geared for customers with demanding workloads.
Enterprise Storage Forum’s recent survey revealed that although many respondents are investing in new storage technologies, the majority are not adding IT staff - creating big challenges.
