Abstract: 

In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off. Once you click “Save,” for example, where does it actually go?

When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. In this webcast we discuss:

  • Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
  • NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
  • NVMe (the protocol)

Learn how these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.
