Low-Latency Media + High-Bandwidth CPUs = A Match Made in Heaven

A frequently asked question by database administrators is: Why is storage technology so slow to keep up with processor advances? The most recent multi-core CPUs can pump out data faster than most storage options available today can read or write,  creating a performance bottleneck. In parallel with Moore’s Law, CPU performance has consistently improved over the years. This has been the case, however, with storage latency, making drives the weak link that degrades the performance of the entire system. CPU cycles are wasted as processors are stuck waiting for storage…
