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.

NFV adoption to transform telecommunications infrastructure

Network functions virtualization (NFV) is an initiative driven by several dozen large (Communications Service Providers) CSPs that dramatically increases the use of virtualization and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems in their networks. Telecom infrastructure has long been a bastion of proprietary software running on purposebuilt hardware. NFV leverages IT technologies – including virtualization, standard servers, and open software – so

Sechs Geheimnisse in Sachen Kostensenkung und Förderung der Prozessoptimierung für Banken

Um gegen den wachsenden Wettbewerb in der Finanzbranche bestehen zu können, kämpfen Banken an zwei Fronten. Zunächst müssen sie ihren Angestellten die Tools an die Hand geben, die sie benötigen, um ein hohes Kundenbetreuungsniveau zu erreichen und das Kundenerlebnis in einen wettbewerbsentscheidenden Faktor umzuwandeln. Gleichzeitig sind die Banken gefordert, zu jeder Gelegenheit Kosten zu sparen

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
