before my eyes: the existential threat of fast, reliable, inexpensive enterprise
storage - is a blog on Infinidat's
own web site which explains why it believes that hybrid storage will remain
the most affordable enterprise storage technology and why Infinidat regards
assertions that "2016 is the year of the all flash data center" as
Steve says - I recommend this because as we all think about
data and storage technology evolving, there are some things we can do with the
existing technology to make it even better. And I think Google has some ideas
on how to do that which are pretty interesting

for Data Centers (pdf) is a white paper presented at
FAST 2016 by
researchers at Google which
looks at the growing gap between the technical specifications of
hard drives today (due
to their evolution to support classical
RAID architectures) and the TCO of an imagined ideal type of future hard
drive which would provide better holistic features / benefits integration in
cloud environments (which the authors say will be the biggest future markets
for such products anyway). The authors argue their justifications for new
HDD form factors and arrangements of internal subsystems to provoke an
industry "discussion about how best to evolve hard disks".
says - Even large consumers of storage aren't bought off yet on the all-flash
data center. Here is Google's approach to massive long term storage. Google's
approach is as scientific as those vendors creating new solutions. The issue to
consider however is that the use case is very different.
Here's Steve's 3rd link suggestion.
glass discs can store data for up to 13.8 billion years - a story on
the Verge which reports ongoing
the University of Southampton into a new optical data archiving
technology - using nanostructured glass - which holds the promise of media
data remanence lasting "billions of years" .
you should see this - Steve says - While flash may be a fascinating topic today,
what is next? The next evolution of how data gets stored may upset all the work
your doing today. I don't believe traditional storage arrays are going to house
these? What then?
