Know your Flash

Flash storage is becoming the new normal to storage data. But, do you know the differences between MLC & QLC drives and why they differ in cost? MLC vs QLC At a very basic level, MLC & QLC differ in capacity, performance & reliability and there are varying costs in using a particular type of flash. Multi-level cells have half the storage capacity of Quad-level cells but don't think that makes them cheaper than QLC. On the contrary, the more storage capacity, the cheaper it will be, so MLCs are slightly more expensive than QLCs.On the other hand, QLC SSDs are generally less reliable than MLC SSDs, precisely because they have 16 different voltage levels compared to MLC's four. Check out this blog from the Magic Quadrant leader, Pure Storage, for more about the advantages & disadvantages of the different types of flash.

What have F1 and IT in common?

In the IT area and Technology, tests are done every day to improve the user experience and ensure the security and usability of stored data. These tests can reveal a system's strengths and weaknesses and allow you to make improvements. In the world of F1, things work the same way. The tests also done are just as important as for the IT. Pre-season testing generates piles of data that teams use throughout the season to tune cars. And, just like the IT practical tests, the tests' weekend in F1 also allows you to better analyze the performance of what was developed.
