It is a simple paradigm, only two architectures that manage the growth of data, those that need extreme performance, such as databases or online applications, will go towards “flash” architectures while the data that are destined for the archive go towards the “trash” architectures.
The future is already usable today, and that is Software Defined Storage.
For BCLOUD Flash & Trash is the mantra on which we develop our experience in solutions that efficiently use your data.
Our brothers in this revolution are the producers focused on Software Defined solutions.
The “Flash” does not necessarily have to be linked to architectures that use only solid state disks as incorrectly presented, but “Flash” is instead an SDS architecture where the software is able to make the mix of SSD and rotational supports extremely efficient obtaining superior results to the architectures purely with SSD, reducing the cost in a sensitive way and ensuring high performance
The “Trash” instead has only one architecture, that Object Storage with only one protocol, the S3 one.
BCLOUD chose years ago a brand that guaranteed full compatibility with the protocol that uses Amazon AWS but managing the data locally. This part of the BCLOUD paradigm has a large number of applications that have been developed in S3 and are already part of our ecosystem of solutions, such as backup and long-term archiving. S3 also allows Tape to be used as a further type of magnetic support
