Traditionally content is moved down the storage hierarchy
as it ages, but in fact the most important piece of information in any organisation is the one needed for the next business evolution.
Henk van Houten and Wouter Leibbrandt have a keen understanding of the technology and its future place in the storage hierarchy
, providing here a highly informed glimpse of what the technology will likely bring to consumer electronics, as well as to computer storage.
This layer of the storage hierarchy
is called the cooperative cache, and improves performance by reducing server accesses.
Software, rather than additional personnel, controls the migration, or movement, of files and volumes throughout the storage hierarchy
Beyond the SSD drive subsystem, additional parameters for the storage hierarchy
are also examined, including:
Database management involves the management of video data, from storage hierarchy
to data models and organization, and to search and indexing techniques.
It uses this diversity by matching data to different tiers in the storage hierarchy
, according to its business value.
There are many levels of the storage hierarchy
though three levels are most often used.
At the hardware level, this essentially comes down to introducing new layers of disk technology into the storage hierarchy
Management software intelligently moves information along the storage hierarchy
Advanced SRM (Storage Resource Management) products are aiming at proactive or anticipatory data movement based on user-defined policies that further optimize the storage hierarchy
while easing the growing management burden.
