Keynote Presentation

Data-centric Architecture for the Zettabyte Age – Opportunities, Challenges and Tiers

Booth - #207  August 06, 2019

In order to meet the explosive growth of data, flash memory manufacturers must continue to advance technology. The introduction of the charge trap memory cell helped enable fast and high-endurance SLC, brought TLC into the mainstream and is now leading to the introduction of QLC. However, the real potential of QLC and other forms of high-density storage such as Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) hard disk drives is not realized in today’s data center. A new, data-centric architecture is needed to address the growing complexity of workloads, applications and AI/IoT datasets. It must involve multiple tiers of purpose-built compute and storage, as well as new approaches to system software. Zoned-block storage allows data to be intelligently placed and sequenced. This enables lower TCO and optimizes the use of emerging high-density storage, without sacrificing performance. In the Zettabyte Age, architects need to explore innovative approaches to data center architecture to unlock the benefits of the next generation of storage.
