  • Software defined storage

    29 July 2014

    By Alex McDonald, SNIA Europe Board of Directors, DMTF OSDDC member (NetApp)

    First published in DCS Europe - Summer 2014

    YOU’D HAVE TO BE LIVING in a cave not to have heard the latest IT buzzword; software defined. I first heard this phrase at a seminar about two years ago in the context of work Stanford University was doing on SDN (storage defined networking). Even back then, there were the rumblings of extending it out to include and define SDS (software defined storage) and an encompassing SDDC (the software defined datacenter).

  • Have You Heard About 40 Gig Fibre Channel?

    15 July 2014

    By J Metz, FCIA Board of Directors (Cisco Systems)

    First published in SNS Europe - June 2014

    It may sound strange to think of the Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA) discussing Ethernet technologies. After all, when people think of Fibre Channel something more than just the protocol comes to mind - the entire ecosystem, management, and design philosophies are part and parcel of what storage administrators think of when we discuss “Fibre Channel networks.”

  • What a Solid State We Store In

    01 July 2014

    By Gilda Foss, SNIA SSSI Governing Board (NetApp)

    First published in SNS Europe - June 2014

    Solid state drives use semiconductor chips, as opposed to magnetic media, to store data. The chips that solid state drives use are non-volatile memory meaning that the data remains even when the system has no power.
