I/O performance in need of a fix

What you’ll learn in this tip: The computer industry has overcome a multitude of technological challenges in the past several years. Networking and memory speeds have increased, processors have gotten faster and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) has allowed for a massive increase in bandwidth. However none of these advances will remain beneficial if I/O performance doesn’t improve. Author Arun Taneja outlines the basics of I/O and explains why critical applications are stalled due to I/O performance issues. There are many supposed keys to this decades old issue -- while some turn to Flash, Flash memory or NAND flash memory chips, others look to solid-state and solid-state drive (SSD) controllers.
