The report only identified the sou[...]

Quick as a Flash: How to Implement a Successful All-Flash Data Center

April 14th, 2014

A long time ago—at least in technology terms—disk storage was the new kid on the block. In 1980, Seagate introduced groundbreaking technology with the hard-disk drive. The first version of the hard-disk drive (HDD) was capable of storing a mere five megabytes of data and sold for $1,500. Thankfully, the technology quickly evolved and in the process overtook tape storage because of its higher efficiency and lower cost. “Flash” Forward Many years later came the introduction of flash s[...]

Will Slowing Moore's Law Boost Hardware Modularity?

April 8th, 2014

As silicon manufacturers begin to fall short of the pace set by Moore’s Law, the incentive for alternative methods of hardware innovation will increase. A number of settings have seen the benefits of modularity, including data center design, so could devices as small as smartphones take advantage of these benefits? Some researchers believe they could, suggesting that hardware modularity may have a shot at success. Replace or Upgrade? One of the remaining benefits of desktop PCs over s[...]
