Virtualization

Is Your All-Flash Array Leaking? - An all-flash array is supposed to be the pinnacle of storage performance but these systems have a secret; they are leaking performance. Proof of this is simple, take the raw IOPS of the drives inside the typical all-flash array and
Why Virtualization STILL Breaks Backup - With the broad adoption of server virtualization by data centers, it became apparent that protection of the new environment was very inadequate.

Prior to VMware the best practice was “one-server, one-app” which, as Intel processors continued to increase in power, led to a massive waste of compute resources. VMware allowed applications to be safely stacked on those

However, hybrid systems’ dominance was short lived as all-flash arrays came to market
What is End to End NVMe? - NVMe is a storage protocol designed specifically for flash-based storage. It is PCIe-based and provides more commands per IO queue and more IO queues. The NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-F) extension gives IP and Fibre Channel (FC) networks the ability to
Can Cloud Backup Reduce Backup Storage Costs? - One of the most expensive aspects of data protection is the cost of the storage that holds all of the copies of data. Backup storage capacity can be 10X or more the capacity of primary storage. Backup storage has a
Disaster Recovery Planning – How to Get from Good To Great - A “great” DR plan is one that addresses one of the biggest concerns that organizations have over the disaster recovery process. “Will it work?” Getting a copy of data to the cloud is the beginning of a great DR plan
How to Improve Recovery Confidence - Almost every recent survey done on the state of backup indicates a very low level of confidence in an organization’s ability to recover in the event of a disaster. There are three reasons for this result. First, the management may
How to Protect a Global VMware Environment - Most enterprises have not virtualized their data center; they have virtualized their data centers (plural).
