Welcome to our August 2016 e-newsletter.

This issue of the Storage magazine e-Newsletter includes a piece from Samsung Semiconductor’s Thomas Arenz that introduces yet another new technology in the flash/SSD arena. It seems like barely a month goes by without a new buzzword emerging as different vendors try to steal a march on the growing market for enterprise/data centre flash solutions.

Arenz’s article explains the thinking behind his company’s newest offering, 3D VNAND, which is claimed to provide a ten-fold improvement in longevity for read-intensive use and a five-fold increase for mixed use – which would address one of the main concerns of data centre managers regarding SSD deployment. Samsung is combining this innovation with the increasingly popular NVMe interface, which itself helps data centre flash fulfil its potential. Whichever approach eventually becomes a de facto standard, there can be little doubt that flash in the data centre is set to become a reality in more and more organisations as developments like 3D VNAND are more widely deployed.
