Neue Perspektiven durch Helium-Füllung für Festplatten

Die aktuelle Festplattentechnologie (HDD) erreicht das obere Plateau einer Technologie-S-Kurve. Dadurch wird kurzfristig die Fähigkeit der Hersteller beschränkt, die Speicherkapazität einer Festplatte zu erhöhen. In den letzten Jahren hat sich die maximale Kapazität von Festplatten alle zwei bis drei Jahre verdoppelt. Im Vergleich dazu hat sich vor zehn Jahren die maximale Kapazität einer Festplatte jährlich

Will Your SSD Stand the Test of Time?

SSD endurance is an important but often overlooked aspect of the hardware. HGST SSDs use CellCare Technology to ensure greater durability, which can eliminate downtime and labour costs, contributing to an overall reduction in TCO. This white paper unwraps the various methods of measuring SSD endurance and demonstrates how this can affect application availability, life

The Hidden Limitations of SSD Benchmarking

Some SSD benchmark scores can be misleading if they do not reflect long-term performance; SSD benchmark tests should measure the stability of consistent performance over time in real-world environments which reflect enterprise applications and performance demands. This white paper explores the limitations of existing benchmarks and shows how HGST uses validation testing against real-world applications

How to Reach Virtually Unlimited Scalability with MySQL

The greatest challenge in using MySQL is the issue of scalability – for business-critical data and mission-critical applications, this means exceptional performance, low latency, low power consumption and high durability. HGST s1100 Series PCIe accelerators offer advantages of speed and cost in comparison to the traditional costly and complex scale out architecture. This white paper

A Comparison of SAS vs. SATA Interfaces

HGST opens out the SAS vs. SATA debate with robust, scalable, high endurance SAS SSDs which comparative testing shows deliver a superior solution with greater value for enterprise and Cloud applications. This white paper examines the differences and advantages of both SAS and SATA and includes performance analysis and applications within the enterprise.

Speeding up Oracle Databases Using Flash

Today’s IT departments are faced with ever increasing demands on their applications as the number of users and underlying databases continue to expand. Application performance has not been able to keep up with this exponential growth. The first thing an IT organization tries to do when performance drops is to add incremental CPU and memory

Increase Storage Performance up to 5x Using HGST SSDs

Increasing the I/O performance of next-generation data centers and cloud computing environments is essential for supporting enterprise e-commerce, database, and email applications. To successfully deploy high-performance storage, it is essential for storage appliance software to be flash-aware and exploit solidstate drives (SSDs) for high random I/O performance and hard disk drives (HDDs) for capacity (cost

2Gbs SAS_Key Considerations For Your Next Storage Generation

Enterprise storage continues to demand higher performance to meet rising workload levels and higher reliability to push down total cost of ownership. At the same time, IT departments remain budget-constrained. Storage tiering provides an efficient approach to meeting these three, occasionally conflicting, goals. While buyers often discuss such factors as media technology (solid state drive
