3 SSD types evaluated for virtualized environment durability
Flash-based storage can fix a wide variety of performance problems, especially those caused by the virtualized server environment. But there is still plenty of mystery surrounding these devices, and one major concern with flash is the finite number of times to which it can be written.
Can they be trusted? Which types of flash make the most sense for a virtualized environment?
In this expert guide, George Crump, President and Founder of Storage Switzerland, evaluates the durability of three types of flash—single-level, multi-level, and triple-level cell. Read on to also delve into three flash form factors to consider when implementing it on virtual workloads.
