Deduplication

Is There A Better Option Than DRaaS? - Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is very appealing to data center administrators looking to meet ever tightening recovery objectives but still reduce costs. By leveraging DRaaS, organizations can eliminate the cost of a secondary site and buying stand-by equipment
The Impact of Big Backup on Disk Backup Appliances with Data Deduplication - Thanks to data efficiency, disk is the primary backup target in most data centers. However, with backup, weeks, months and years of retention are kept and therefore the cost of straight disk is untenable. However, with data deduplication, which compares
Copy Data Management is Ready for Prime Time - The data center’s biggest challenge is not dealing with the capacity growth of the primary data set, it is dealing with the growth of the secondary data set. The secondary data set is copies of data it creates from primary
Strategies for Managing the Performance Impacts of Data Efficiency in Hyperconverged Systems - The dramatic growth of data continues. To help solve the problems associated with that growth, vendors are coming up with new technologies that will not only maximize storage capacity but also improve performance. These techniques include thin provisioning, writeable snapshots
The Post-Virtualization Refresh: Is Hyperconvergence the Answer? - Hyperconvergence has seen significant uptake in the last two years, driven by its simplification of IT infrastructure.

The problem is moving to an all-flash storage infrastructure is expensive. However, it can be an affordable reality
Hardware First – Designing All-Flash Arrays From a Hardware First Perspective - Data centers have to meet the increasing performance demands of scale out databases, big data analytics, and dense virtual environments. These data centers need to meet these demands without requiring more data center floor space or consuming more power. All-flash
The Hard Disk Autopsy - The Violin Memory Systems “Disk is Dead” campaign says what needed to be said; disk, at least for the production use case, is dead or it least it should be. An autopsy done on the technology will find that it
Technical Considerations for adding a Cloud Backup Service to your MSP Portfolio - In order to keep up with a dramatically changing IT landscape, many value added resellers (VARs), large and small, are considering becoming managed service providers (MSP).
