Recorded audio from the Peer Incite:
On February 6th, EMC will announce it's long awaited "Project Lightning," a PCIe-based flash solution designed to extend EMC's value closer to the server. On February 9th, the Wikibon community will gather to assess the implications of this announcement and review its impact. For the past fifteen years, we've seen storage function move steadily away from the server toward the storage network. With strong consumer adoption that is rapidly moving to the enterprise, flash is a persistent, non-mechanical medium that can dramatically improve performance of both traditional and emerging applications. As flash prices decline, its role will become increasingly important in the evolving storage hierarchy.
Please join us as we explore the following issues:
- What is Project Lightning and why Does it Matter?
- How is the storage hierarchy evolving and where does Lightning fit relative to the competition?
- How will the role of spinning disk change as a result of flash generally and Lightning specifically?
- How should practitioners view Lightning and what actions should they take to maximize value?
Please join us...
