    Latency Budgets for Solid State Storage Access

    March 7th, 2017

    New solid state storage technologies are forcing the industry to refine distinctions between networks and other types of system interconnects.  The question on everyone’s mind is: when is it beneficial to use networks to access solid state storage, particularly persistent memory? It’s not quite as simple as a “yes/no” answer. The answer to this question …Read More


    Rock n’ Roll with SMB3

    Server Message Block (SMB) is the core file-transfer protocol of Windows, MacOS and Samba, and has become widely deployed. It’s ubiquitous – a 30-year-old family of network code. However, the latest iteration of SMB3 is almost unrecognizable when compared to versions only a few years old. That’s why the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) has …Read More

    We’ve Been Thinking…What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage?

    February 1st, 2017

    Here at the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF), we’ve been discussing how hyperconverged adoption will impact storage. Converged Infrastructure (CI), Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), along with Cluster or Cloud In a Box (CIB) are popular trend topics that have gained both industry and customer adoption. As part of data infrastructures, CI, HCI, and CIB enable simplified …Read More


    Buffers, Queues, and Caches, Oh My!

    January 18th, 2017

    Buffers and Queues are part of every data center architecture, and a critical part of performance – both in improving it as well as hindering it. A well-implemented buffer can mean the difference between a finely run system and a confusing nightmare of troubleshooting. Knowing how buffers and queues work in storage can help make …Read More
