Using Workload Simulation to Justify the Shift to NVMe - The introduction of the non-volatile memory express (NVMe) storage protocol brings with it a new storage performance tier. Whereas older Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) standards were designed for slower-performing hard disk drive (HDDs) and
What Can Storage Learn From Server Consolidation? - Storage consolidation projects are permanently on the IT project whiteboard.

Why Hyperconverged Infrastructure 2.0 for Storage-Intensive Workloads? - The volume and business significance of storage-intensive workloads (e.g. high-volume analytics) is rapidly growing. As a result, cumbersome and expensive legacy storage infrastructures are weighing heavily not only on business’ bottom lines, but also on their ability to compete effectively.
Using Software-defined Networking to Scale the IT Team - IT infrastructure must become easier to manage, to free up the time that IT managers are spending on cumbersome day-to-day management tasks that add little strategic value.
