NVMe’s have made the limitations of SATA protocol more and more apparent as new and emergent technology arrives on the tech market. NVMe SSDs are trailblazing their way into the front and centre of the public eye. By connecting directly to the servers CPUs through the PCI express interface bus, they bypass entirely the host bus adapters (HBAs) that SATA drives require. 

Are NVMe’s the future?

With the way things are heading, it is predicted that NVMe adoption will grow by 91% by the end of 2023. NVMe is the storage technology you want for your current or next PC. The continued evolvement of the NVMe standard means that, as well as the present version 1.31, new features such as the ability to use your computer’s system memory as a cache. 

The NVMe SSD inside the latest Macbook Pro reads and writes data four times faster than the SATA SSD’s found in the previous generations and seeks out information ten times as fast. Meaning you are not left staring blankly at that annoying spinning circle that often accompanies a loading page. NVMe’s should be a priority and should be actively sought out, not an add on or an afterthought when choosing a new or upgraded PC. 

Not that you often need perpetuated output like this, but NVMe does short work of transferring files of any size. Compared to the rate offered by HDD’s 200MBps, and SATA SSD’s 550MBps, the NVMe SSD’s offer 3GBps in most business machines with their gaming counterparts now exceeding 7GBps.

Pro’s and Con’s of NVMe’s

The benefits of NVMe SSD include the following: NVMe SSD’s work with all major operating systems, giving the option of improved storage to many people and businesses without drastic changes to current operating systems. NVMe supports tunnelling protocol, so data privacy concerns are addressed and dealt with. It also supports a much higher bandwidth than SATA and offers superior compatibility with the system CPU. 

NVMe’s may sound current like the be all or end all of the technology, but they are not without disadvantages. NVMe costs more than your standard 2.5 SSD devices, and any older systems do not support legacy NVMe. But these do not seem to be deal-breakers to us on why NVMe’s should be your choice when thinking about upgrading or replacing your system.  

Growth within the NVMe Market

The NVMe market is projected to grow from $44.6b in 2020 to $163.5b by 2025. The major factors included in the market are due to the increasing adoption of NVMe technologies in SSD’s, servers and storage applications. The evolving demand for data storage and exponential use in data generation. This escalation in data needed lends itself to all aspects of the technological world, such as higher quality gaming PCs. NVMe’s also offer significant performance advancements and processing infrastructure. 

It is projected that NVMe SSD’s will hold the largest share in the NVMe market during the forecast period. They have the largest market since they are adopted widely as a storage solution in most verticals. 

When introduced into the market, SSD’s were marketed as a storage device that provides faster read and writes operations and reduced latency compared to HDD’s. SSD’s hold the highest share of the non-volatile memory express market. 

North America held the largest size of the NVMe market in 2019. They have the largest share of the market, closely followed by Europe and APAC. The key players in the market are Samsung, Western Digital, Intel, Dell, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Intel is currently a leading player across the global NVMe market.

The SSD sector has a massive opportunity for growth in the face of this NVMe surge. The BSFI vertical is among the largest adopter of the NVMe market. The increasing application of next-generation technologies such as AI, machine learning etc., means that the need to process data at a very high rate is moving more and more to the forefront, which presents a very lucrative market opportunity for new entrants into the NVMe market. 

Data-centric storage and computing tasks have led to significant demand for higher data read and write performance. The adoption of SATA is rapidly declining as the NVMe protocol replaces it.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak launched the spending review, which has set out the spending priorities for the next three years. The three-year review will set UK government departments resource and capital budgets for 2022-2023 to 2024-25, and the devolved administrations block grants for the same period. Add this to what has already been provided to investing in our future; this means that by 2024-2025 core departmental spending will be £140 billion more per year in cash terms at the start of parliament.

The Economy and its Impact

COVID -19 has had a drastic impact on the economy, and the chancellor has iterated that spending plans will be underpinned by a focus on ensuring every pound of taxpayer funding is well spent so that we can continue to deliver the highest quality services to the public at the best value.

COVID-19 saw a rise of 44% in notebooks and mobile workstations shipments, showing that digitisation of the current workplace is imperative to moving forward. The budget the chancellor announced means that spending is spread over several areas, with the core departments seeing a rise in spending. In total, the day to day spending will increase to £440 billion by 2024-25, increasing by nearly £100 billion a year in cash terms over the parliament.

The budget also promises to deliver a step-change in capital investment as set out in the budget 2021; there are plans to invest over £600 billion over five years, the highest sustained level of public sector net investment as a proportion of GDP since the late 1970s. The public sector finds that digital technologies have a major impact on their operations and hopes to see money being put towards IT upgrades to increase efficiency. The upgrades we would be referring to specifically is SSD and Memory Upgrades.

How Origin Storage can help you

Many people are still using devices that run Windows 7, which is a program that has been reported to have slow performance and compatibility issues. Windows 10 would be the better choice of an operating system, but it needs 2GB of ram to run efficiently. If the public sector wants to embrace digitisation, it needs to offer employees devices that can run newer versions of Windows to cope with more data.

Affordability in this current climate is crucial, and one affordable way to run Windows 10 on an older device would be to invest in an SSD or Memory Upgrade. If older devices aren’t currently fit for purpose, upgrading the memory or implementing a secondary storage area may be enough to make the device operational. You can find SSD and Memory Upgrade options on our website, where we also have a sales support team to help you find the best choice for your current device.

To understand why NVMe products are in demand, we must first understand its origins. Legacy interfaces between the processor and storage device did not take into account performance-orientated storage such as flash. Interfaces were originally designed to work with hard disk drives (HDDs), which were relatively slow and did not require high-performance circuits. As a result, there was a bottleneck period with storage. 

The solution is born

In March 2011, the NVMe specifications were developed by the NVM Express Workgroup, which consisted of more than 90 companies. Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) enables the communication between the processor and the storage device to occur quickly. It took some time for NVMe to emerge in the market, but it is now common technology. In 2020, the global NVMe market was valued at approximately $44.6 billion and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.7%, leading to a valuation of $163.5 billion by 2025. The major driving factors of the market include increased adoption of NVMe technologies in SSDs, servers, and in storage. 

NVMe was designed to take advantage of flash capability, and it provides a performance upgrade compared to SATA interfaces, for example. SATA interfaces are compatible with hard disk performance, but it is not enough to support flash performance.

What are the main benefits of NVMe?

The design of NVMe offers numerous advantages over other interfaces. NVMe has lower IO latency because of improved drivers, allowing for an increase in the number of queues and commands in a queue. NVMe technology has lower CPU overhead with handling IO, allowing for more cycles by other computations. It also has improved bandwidth and takes advantage of fast PCIe interfaces.

The future of NVMe Storage

The migration to SSDs using flash as the primary storage device is a major break from the prior dominance of rotating devices. The NVMe architecture that is specifically designed to support SSDs, and future technologies that are currently being developed, has a very bright future. Flash storage allows the creation of new, innovative technologies that will enable processors to become even more powerful following Moore’s Law.

Solid-state drives (SSD) are storage devices that use flash memory to deliver high performance and durability. Additionally, SSDs have no moving parts, run cooler and use less energy in the process. They allow for faster loading times for applications and games and can withstand more movement than HDDs (hard disk drive). However, there is a price to pay for their superior performance. SSDs are a newer technology, and, as a result, they are more expensive than HDDs. We’ll explore the origins of the SSD and how the technology has changed since its inception.

The origins of SSDs

The development of SSDs started with two similar technologies: magnetic core memory and card capacitor read-only storage. These memory solutions emerged during the time of vacuum-tube computers – think the Enigma machine, which the codebreakers used at Bletchley Park to crack the German codes during the Second World War.

Fast-forward to the late 1970s and 1980s, and SSDs were used in early supercomputers, but they were extremely expensive. The drive for faster, cheaper memory led to innovation in the market. In 1976, Dataram introduced the world’s first SSD, the Bulk Core. The drive was approximately the size of a microwave and contained 2MB of storage. This is a tiny amount of storage by today’s standards but was an impressive amount of memory at the time.

Commercial flash-based SSD 

The first commercial flash-based SSD was introduced in 1991 by SanDisk. The SSD was used in IBM’s ThinkPad pen computer, which had a capacity of 20MB and sold for around $1,000. Ten years later, SanDisk and Toshiba launched the world’s first commercial NANDS MLC 1GB chip, driving the cost of SSD solutions down by 50,000x while increasing chip density by 32,000x.

SSDs became affordable for the average person in the early 2000s, when products such as SanDisk and Motorola’s microSDTM became the fastest growing form factor globally, with five million cards shipped in its first year. In the early 2000s, commercial SSDs were still expensive, costing as much as a powerful laptop or a basic car. 2010 was a pivotal year as the mass adoption of SSDs began. Apple started using SSDs in its MacBooks as its standard option rather than a luxury upgrade. 

NVMe changes the game

The NVMe specifications were developed by the NVM Express Workgroup, which consisted of 90 companies. NVMe delivers faster access and consumes less power, reducing running costs for users. The beauty of NVMe is that it is futureproofed; its capabilities are extendable to work with technologies that do not exist yet.

Unfortunately, the parts shortage which has been happening since the beginning of 2020 is still with us and is likely to be with us for some time. 

Nvidia’s CFO Colette Kress explained that the company expects demand to “continue to exceed supply for much of this year”. Similarly, chip manufacturer TSMC, who makes processors for Apple, Qualcomm, and AMD, has warned that shortages could continue into 2022. Intel’s chief executive, Pat Gelsinger, says the worst is yet to come and that we may have to wait a year or two until supplies return to normal. Glenn O’Donnell, a vice president research director at Forrester, believes the shortage could last until 2023. The general consensus is that the world will have to grapple with the crisis for longer yet.

The semiconductor shortage, what some are calling “chipageddon”, has affected a variety of industries. Manufacturers of graphics cards, kitchen appliances, phones, cars, computers, and games consoles struggle to get a hold of semiconductors essential to electronic devices. You can learn more about the origins of the semiconductor shortage here

Chipageddon continues

“Chipageddon” is a result of a variety of factors. Coronavirus lockdowns in China caused production to reduce significantly for a period of months at a time when demand for everything that kept us entertained during lockdowns, such as TVs, games consoles, phones, and other electronics, skyrocketed. It is the perfect storm, and it’s meant that prices of electronics have increased, and almost everyone will be affected by it in some way, shape, or form. 

Parts

Stockpiling and new cryptocurrency increase demand

The situation shows no signs of abating just yet. Stockpiling has made the situation worse for firms that are struggling to get hold of precious chips. Some Chinese companies which have been affected by sanctions have taken to stockpiling in-demand chips in an attempt to ride out the crisis, intensifying the crisis for companies all over the world.

Stockpiling isn’t the only thing causing significant increases in demand. The cryptocurrency Chia, which was launched in May of this year, caused SSD demand to skyrocket. Chia relies on storage rather than processing performance to mine, and crypto-fanatics were keen to buy up huge amounts of storage to mine the cryptocurrency. 

Manufacturers desperately search for a solution

Chipageddon is causing chaos for industries all over the world, and the leading semiconductor manufacturers are working hard to improve the supply of products. For example, The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., one of the leading advanced semiconductor suppliers, is planning to spend approximately $100 billion over the next three years to increase its capacity to meet demand.

A report has found that half of all government spending on computers is dedicated to keeping old systems going. The BBC recently revealed that the government spends £2.3 billion patching up systems, some of which date back as far as 30 years. A Cabinet Office report, Organising for Digital Delivery, warns that the government could spend between £13bn and £22bn over the next five years on obsolete systems, and the sum will only continue to grow as time goes on.

Additionally, a report by the UK National Audit Office report said some government digital services “fail to meet even the minimum cyber-security standards, while others are not fit for purpose and rely on outdated infrastructure, making them vulnerable to cyber-attacks and breaches”.

The news of outdated systems and the associated security risks is concerning from both an efficiency and a security standpoint and may resonate with some businesses experiencing similar problems. The threat of a cyberattack is particularly worrying for organisations, but they happen all too often. The 2021 Cyber Security Breaches Survey found that four in ten businesses reported having cyber security breaches or attacks between March 2020 and March 2021.

Companies need to heed the government’s warning and take sufficient action to ensure their own systems are fit for purpose. The pandemic only accelerated digitisation, and more of the work employees do across all sectors is digital in its nature. The rapid increase in data processing means a growing demand for increasingly powerful devices, and some businesses are struggling to keep up.

How can businesses provide employees with powerful devices in a cost-effective manner?

Upgrade systems rather than replacing them entirely.

Businesses must do all they can to ensure employees are working with functional devices, especially as remote working remains widespread across the UK. The best way to provide employees with powerful, up-to-date devices without spending vast sums of money is to upgrade devices rather than replacing them. It is also more sustainable as you’re using fewer materials; it’s a win-win!

Don’t have the expertise to upgrade devices in-house? We can help.

Older devices regularly run into a range of issues such as insufficient memory and storage, damaged ports, broken keyboards, cracked screens, and more. But many devices are salvageable with a few chosen upgrades. 

We offer a range of upgrade and repair services such as SSD and HDD upgrades, storage upgrades, as well keyboard and laptop screen replacements. We have a purpose-built upgrade facility where our technicians work with your system using compatible products to make them more powerful and efficient.

If upgrades are on the cards, why not browse our storage, security, memory, networking solutions, as well as the wide range of accessories we offer?

Is your computer running slowly? Or perhaps it keeps crashing? You might need to upgrade your memory. Maybe your files are also saving slower than usual? Are you receiving read-only errors? These are signs you need to replace your SSD. 

Why not upgrade your RAM and SSD at the same time? Discussions often revolve around whether you should upgrade your memory or SSD, but upgrading at the same time has a range of benefits.

Why should you upgrade your RAM?

A RAM upgrade is one of the easiest and most accessible ways to upgrade your PC as it delivers an instant performance boost. If your device is slowing down, a RAM upgrade may be necessary. Suppose you’re finding that your device is struggling to cope with running several programs at once. In that case, a RAM upgrade will allow you to use more programs at once, browse faster, see a boost in network capabilities, and have a better gaming experience. If you want to have a significant boost to your browsing capabilities, photo-editing and mid-range gaming, we’d recommend an upgrade to 8GB RAM. If you’re planning to run more intensive programs that require some serious computing power, 16GB might be more suitable. The more RAM, the better.

Why should you upgrade your SSD?

If your device is booting up slowly, struggles to open a new program, or finds moving files around difficult, an SSD upgrade is recommended. SSDs also have a range of benefits which mean they are a better option than an HDD. If you’re conscious about how much power your device uses, an SSD uses less power than an HDD and does not contain any moving parts that may mean the device is more susceptible to breaking. Additionally, SSDs are quieter to run, typically have a longer lifespan than HDDs, sometimes two to three times longer due to their shock resistance.

The main benefit of upgrading both the RAM and the SSD simultaneously is the boost in performance in terms of speed and efficiency. If your device is struggling, upgrading the RAM and SSD will improve performance significantly and saves you the task of opening up your device twice.

The end of the financial year is approaching, which means that there are budgets that need to be spent. The best investment that the public sector can make in this climate is in technology. Access to powerful devices has never been so important. 

Digitisation is accelerating.

Organisations across a range of sectors are being met with the challenge of rapid digitisation. This has only been amplified by the pandemic. In March, millions of people began working from home due to the rapid spread of COVID-19. This instigated a demand for laptops and desktops that allowed employees to work from home efficiently until they could return to the office when safe to do so. As a result, 2020 was the biggest year for PC demand in over a decade, with shipments of notebooks and mobile workstations increasing by 44 per cent.

Digital transformation is now essential.

With digitisation on fast-forward due to the pandemic, companies, both public and private, must undergo a digital transformation as soon as possible. The rapid increase in data being processed means that there is a growing demand for powerful devices.

Raj Hazra, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Communications at Micron, explained that “the storing of data and making it available to the right computer at the right time is the bottleneck problem.” This is a problem that businesses have had to confront head-on to find workable solutions. The public sector, in particular, is finding that digital technologies have a ‘major impact’ on their operations. With the budget deadline approaching, the public sector should consider putting the money to good use by investing in IT upgrades to increase efficiency. We are referring specifically to SSD and memory upgrades.

Why SSD and memory upgrades specifically?

If a device uses a newer operating system, such as Windows 10, it will require at least 2GB of RAM to function efficiently. Unfortunately, a proportion of public sector employees will be using devices that will struggle to run Windows 10 properly, meaning they are likely using Windows 7. Earlier in the year, Channel Web reported that one in seven public sector computers are still running Windows 7. The problem is that the older operating system has been plagued with problems since its release, including slow performance, compatibility issues with a range of programs, and more. Even more concerning is that Windows ended their support for this earlier version of the operating system in January 2020. If the public sector is to truly embrace digitisation, it needs to offer employees devices that can run newer versions of Windows to cope with more data. 

One affordable way to run Windows 10 on an older device is to upgrade the device memory. If there are older devices that aren’t currently fit for purpose, upgrading the memory may be enough to make the device operational. If the public sector has some of it’s remaining budget to use before the end of March, investing in new memory for devices in need of an upgrade will increase a department’s ability to embrace digitisation.

If you are interested in a memory upgrade but don’t know where to start, our upgrades and repairs service might be just what you need.

2020, as you know, was a turbulent year by all accounts. The coronavirus pandemic prompted a massive increase in public spending as the economy plunged into the deepest recession on record, leaving many facing financial hardship. In November 2020, HM Treasury published the Spending Review 2020, which prioritises funding to support the government’s response to Covid-19 and invest in the UK’s economic recovery. What is clear from the Spending Review is that the government plans to invest in economic recovery for all regions of the UK to build a stronger future for all citizens. As a result, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak announced plans to deliver over £600 billion of public investment over the next five years to help the country recover from the health crisis.

Technology is a clear priority. 

Among other things, the Spending Review focuses on the importance of technology in a range of sectors. The government have pledged to invest over £600 million to fix outdated government IT, which has caused problems in recent years and will likely have slowed overall efficiency. The funding increases will affect HMRC who will receive £268m, the Home Office who will receive £232m, £40m for the Ministry of Justice, and £64 million for the Department of Education. The government has said that the investment “reduce the risk of failures, improves efficiency and ultimately means a better service for the public.” 

How can the government bring public sector technology up to date affordably? 

Upgrade, don’t replace. 

The best way to provide the public sector with powerful, up-to-date devices without spending more money than is necessary is to upgrade devices rather than buying new ones. As we mentioned in a previous article, the last thing the public sector needs during an economic crisis is a drop in productivity and efficiency due to sub-standard devices. One of the most common problems with devices is that they are simply too slow. No matter how tidy a device is, hard drives fill up over time. As a hard drive becomes close to capacity, it will significantly affect the speed of a device. At Origin Storage, we offer a range of storage solutions to suit a wide range of devices, old or new. There’s no need to replace the device altogether!

Upgrade memory with our upgrades service. 

Another reason why devices might be slow and struggle to run a number of applications at once might be because they require more memory. The good news about memory upgrades is that they can be done relatively cheaply. The Origin Storage upgrades service is ideal for those who need a number of devices upgrading but aren’t sure where to start. We have a purpose-built upgrade facility where our technicians will work with systems using compatible, affordable products. Even better, the upgrade service won’t affect OEM warranties, and other necessary upgrades can be completed while the device is with us for a memory upgrade. 

Here at Origin Storage, we’ve got everything needed for a device to run efficiently without needing to break the bank. To find out more about our services or to speak to a member of our specialist team, click here.
