Video: Protecting Your Data, Protecting Your Hardware

ddnIn this video from the 2016 HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference, Jean Thomas Acquaviva from DDN presents: Protecting Your Data, Protecting Your Hardware.

“Thanks to the arrival of SSDs, the performance of storage systems can be boosted by orders of magnitude. While a considerable amount of software engineering has been invested in the past to circumvent the limitations of rotating media, there is a misbelief than a lightweight software approach may be sufficient for taking advantage of solid state media. Taking the data protection as an example, this talk will present some of the limitations of current storage software stacks. We will then discuss how this unfold to a more radical re-design of the software architecture and ultimately is making a case for an I/O interception layer.”
