Reshaping the Storage Technology Landscape – Kaminario Briefing Note - The storage industry isn’t changing; it is reshaping. What is the difference? If the industry were changing, it would be its choice to change, driven by internal motivations. Instead, outside influences are reshaping the industry. What are the primary drivers
It is Time to Get Serious About Your Cloud Strategy – Zerto Briefing Note - Most organizations, if they are using cloud resources at all, are only using the cloud for a single purpose. The two most common use cases are backup storage and archive storage. Most organizations also look at the cloud as a
Can Software Defined Networking Bring Scale to HCI? – Big Switch HCI Briefing Note - Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is one of those technologies that look great on the whiteboard. The idea of collapsing the compute, storage and networking tiers into one, and creating an infrastructure that automatically scales as each node is added to the
Why and How to Change Backup Solutions – Catalogic Briefing Note - Almost every organization is looking for a better backup solution. Given the number of new solutions that appear on the market, seemingly every day, IT needs to decide why they need to change backup solutions and then how to replace
How to Backup Big NAS – Igneous Briefing Note - One of the top use cases for a network attached storage system (NAS) is to be the catchall for unstructured data to make it easy to distribute data to compute in a shared infrastructure for use by many applications. The
Can HyperConvergence Work at the Edge? – StorMagic Briefing Note - Edge computing, remote offices, branch offices (ROBO), small data centers, and IoT use cases are on the rise. Most research predicts that the amount of data stored outside the data center will be 40X more than what is stored inside
Efficiency Matters More in The Cloud – Turbonomic Briefing Note - Making sure a data center’s compute, network and storage resources are used efficiently is important. But making sure those resources are efficiently used in the cloud is critical. In the data center, finding a better way to balance the compute
Dealing with the Polarization of Unstructured Data - Quantum Xcellis Scale-out NAS Briefing Note Unstructured data is polarizing. On one end, a large portion of unstructured data needs almost no performance, it just needs to be retained in case it is needed in the future. On the other
Predicting WAN Performance – Disaster Recovery’s Missing Link – Apposite Briefing Note - Most storage systems today have the ability to replicate data to another storage system at another site. If the storage system doesn’t have that capability, then there are plenty of third-party software solutions that perform the function. Even if the
What is Cloud Adjacent Storage? – INFINIDAT Briefing Note - Cloud adjacent storage is storage positioned within close proximity to a data center owned by a cloud provider.
