088  – Moore's Law Is Dead: What It Means for Storage

Moore’s Law, which held that processor speeds would double every 18 months to 2 years, is dead, according to Pliops President/CBO Steve Fingerhut. Because of that, the burden now falls on storage to provide the kind of performance that the current IT environment demands.

Fingerhut discusses these issues on this episode of “10 on Tech” with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. What’s needed, Fingerhut argues, is a way to speed up storage and make it more efficient. He believes the answer is storage acceleration, which offloads the burden from the processor.

Highlights of the show include:

  • How the cloud has changed computing and application development
  • Why processors can’t keep up anymore
  • Where the bottlenecks really are now
  • Why storage hardware acceleration is the answer to current challenges
  • An overview of Pliops, and how its product works
