Overcoming RAID limitations with shared storage
John Scaramuzzo, CRO of Nyriad, believes one of the reasons for the SAN’s fall from grace is the way in which the redundant array of independent disks (RAID) holds back storage efficiency.
“The benefits of shared storage have fought increasing headwinds due to the limitations of RAID, namely the use of inefficient low-capacity hard drives, degraded array performance, and data loss,” Scaramuzzo said.
“However, there is a new generation of shared storage that utilizes GPUs to enable erasure-coded data protection at the block level, replacing RAID and all its limitations. The benefits of shared storage will be enhanced with better performance, resilience, and efficiency.”
