Flash Storage for The DBA (300)

Speaker: Chris Adkin

We are at one of the greatest inflection points the IT industry has seen in terms of storage, this is the transition from spinning disk to all flash storage. With the transition to the new world of flash storage a lot of conventional DBA wisdom will no longer apply, things such as file placements across LUNS and spindles, the need for compression and how encryption affects the array, also things such as testing and how curiously one of the best tools for synthetic testing of flash storage comes from Microsoft’s main competitor in the RDMS market. This session will cover all the things a DBA needs to know in the new world of all flash storage.
